today is orange in colour week over at poppytalk. i have added one of my favourite mugs ( atelier lzc for habitat 05 ) that i will be using for many a hot chocolate this autumn, and some amazing vivid orange wool i purchased ages ago in loop. i am still deciding what to use it for.

the magic conker

i love autumn. it has always been my favorite time of the year. one of the things i love about it are conkers. they remind me of when i was a kid, gathering fallen ones from trees on the way to school to thread onto string and have conker 'fights' with chums.

i love this book from my childhood as it has a very happy ending! there is a tree in the city a short stroll from my home that has a plentiful supply at this time of year. i was lucky enough to find all of these ones there.
