No Products in the Basket
We have just entered my favourite season of all: autumn. I have been feeling it in the air over the last week and today, as I write, I am watching the red and orange leaves start to fall from the tree in our front garden. There has been a distinct change in the weather so this morning the children have dressed themselves in their woolly knits that luckily still fit from last year! We’ve had a fantastic summer break, but I admit I’m excited to pack away the sun hats and sandals and dig out the hats, scarves, gloves and boots.
I can’t quite explain the feeling that autumn gives me, but fellow autumn-lovers will understand. It’s something to do with golden leaves laying scattered on the ground, the smell of dampness in the air and enough of a chill to need a jacket. We love our countryside walks, kicking the leaves with our wellies on, then returning to the comfort of our home for a hot chocolate and freshly baked apple pie. We will light the candles, pumpkin spice or toffee apple scented, once the orange/red hue of the afternoon has faded.
I was curious to find out how other people around the world feel about autumn and if they have any special autumnal activities or rituals they look forward to. What better place to ask than my fellow hygge-lovers from a Facebook group that I belong to. These are their ideas of perfect autumnal activities:
Doesn’t this give you such a cosy, warm feeling inside? Autumn really seems to be the talk of the town this year and I keep hearing discussions about how they are looking forward to getting the woolly knits out and preparing for the cosy season. Maybe it has something to do with an innate feeling that we have become accustomed to, due to the pandemic and staying indoors, of being safe, warm, cosy and making the most of being indoors with our families.
We would love to know how you feel about autumn and what you are most looking forward to. Across on our Instagram page this season we will be sharing weekly autumn hygge hints and tips, hearty recipes and bakes and, of course, lots of autumnal products and ideas. And if you love candles with an autumnal feel, take a look at the new range which is live on the website; including Pumpkin Spice and Woodland Walk. Happy autumn!
