“Sweet and pungent, precious as cinnamon bark.”
― Regina O’Melveney

I love the smell of Oranges, and Cinnamon. So the two mixed together are absolutely fantastic in my book. It was nice to see a whole stall full of such products at the recent Craft Fayre I exhibited at. Dried and Tied is the name of this particular one although there are many variations of providers of the wonderful products! Check out the link to follow them on Facebook.

The dried out fruit is photogenic, coupled with a few sticks of cinnamon and some straw like decoration and it’s quite photogenic! This particular product is a candle within a terracota pot, once the pot heats up it warms the cinnamon around the edges of it and gently infuses the air with orange. Perfect!

I used my window as a background, even my car managed to creep into a few shots, they’re not the best  pictures but I like the warm cosy feel especially as much of the UK is experiencing horrendous wind and rain at the moment.

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
― Henry David Thoreau

Today we went to a Pumpkin Festival! Although there were not many Pumpkins it seemed. There were a fair few scarecrows though! Quite a few were doing their job too by scaring little children as they walked past.



The Photo opportunities presented themselves quite well and it was refreshing to see a celebration of Autumn, generally as a nation, we don’t bother with marking it in comparison to Americans.  I feel like the photos are quite half hearted though – I’m tired!


Autumn is well and truly here though in the colour of the trees and the chill that was on the air today. Winter was here too with the hail stone showers and pouring rain that attacked in bursts throughout the day.

Now it’s time to curl up by the fire with a good book and do little else for the rest of the weekend!
