The nights are drawing in and there's definitely an autumn chill in the air. For the first time in over a decade the rhythmn of the academic year re-enters my life with Z's first day at school on Monday. To celebrate the new season, and to cushion the blow of having to say farewell to summer, I've treated myself to these felted acorns from ZM Felt at Folksy, who can custom make them in any colour you like. Aren't they beautiful? I think they'd look lovely strung up in a garland for a seasonal display.
