Well, we've had the equinox...Autumn is officially here!! I love it! The changing colours of the trees...the rustle underfoot of the fallen leaves...the crispness in the air...the need for a cosy jumper - I'm in my element!

Today's Shopping List is packed full of all things autumnal. Shoozle's pendant and Threekeys' necklace captures leaves falling in the mist; the divine children's tunic from breadandroses is perfect as we forage about picking up pine cones and conkers...
Momomatic's ring conjures thoughts of toffee apples and applebobbing...toffee apples with no calories? Look no further than FrostedFakes to cheer up your kitchen and keep you guilt free!
For those of you that know me, you'll know why I picked the next two wedding anniversary falls in October. My mum made my bouquet with huge magnolia blooms, and they also adorned the cake - how could I resist this glorious necklace from LieblingDesigns?! Onegarnetgirl's gorgeous ring is very reminiscent of my engagement ring - and these stones are such glorious colours!
TessaAnn's brooch speaks for itself - rustic and colorful, just right for this season.
Now, then. Trees - I'm surrounded by them here in the forest. I've always nurtured a little passion for a mantel laden with fir trees at Christmas time, but why wait until then? I love these by winsomehollow! I need a mantelpiece full of them - they're all different in her shop - I need them...I do!

I think next week I'll have a little foray into Hallowe'en treasures...after all, it'll be October by then!
