autumn delights


i love autumn but it tends to get rushed through as a season. i’m barely out of flip flops when people start talking about christmas and all the shops are transformed.

last year i made a mistake. i refused to plan for christmas until december and then, of course, it was too late. this year, because i’m planning for my presents to be almost entirely handmade (so, mainly knitted) or vintage finds, i need a little more planning but to not turn my attention to this until the start of november has been just fine.

i follow a lot of american blogs and chat to american and canadian people on twitter. they really know how to celebrate autumn as a season. they live and breathe pumpkins. of course, there were lots of pumpkin carving sessions and hallowe’en parties here in the uk but they just seem to do it better across the pond – with more gusto.

for me, other than welcoming my much-loved coats and boots back out of the wardrobe, enjoying the crisp sunny days, the leaves and the light (such beautiful light!),  one of my favourite parts of autumn is the food. highlights included pumpkin and chestnut risotto and blackberry, apple and pear cobbler.

carry on reading the p/hop blog to see all of the wonderful things they do to raise money for MSF. i also plan to write about p/hopping on my own blog very soon…
