Autumn Walks beneath the Trees

Lately I have been loving wrapping up warm and taking long walks in the woods.
I'm feeling so inspired by Owls, Toadstools and little Robin Redbreasts lately!
My latest walk inspired this drawing

Rainy Day Sunday + The mushroom Men

Well, after all the talking I did about loving Autumn, today was horrendous!
It rained so hard all day you couldn't even step out of the door without getting drenched! (Ok, maybe that is an overreaction, but it was bad!)
So I decided the only thing to do was to have a PJ day, which was bliss!
My day consisted of reading, drinking coffee with cinnamon and coconut and relaxing!
Hey, bad weather's not so bad if you can stay inside!

Later on it calmed down and we were feeling a bit cooped up so we decided to go for a walk
Except this little lady

All those toys?
2 catnip mice and one catnip rat, bought from Wales when we went away (She demanded presents)
Sisco doesn't think of herself as spoilt
She totally believes she deserves a little luxury
We are lucky she hasn't taken over the whole bed!

So we layered up and set off
Isn't this lovely?
It's a statue in the childrens playground area
So pretty

Because of the rain, the woods smelt amazing!
So fresh and earthy!
We could smell a bonfire in the distance that added to the Autumny atmosphere, it was magical!

Beautiful little Robin!
I love Robins, they seem so full of character!

More AMAZING mushrooms!
They just sprout out of the trees!

But, whenever I see them, I see them like this!
" Hey Claire, Just chillin' against this tree"

Then it started to get dark and a bit spooky, so we headed back!

New Drawings!

I was feeling like I needed a good girly dose of pink today, so I drew these!
The girl kinda reminds me of Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Cosy Autumn Feelings.......

The last week it has gotten so much more Autumny
I love it!

We are lucky to live close by to beautiful big woods
Somedays there's nothing better than to wrap up warm and walk amongst the changing leaves
On recent walk we saw these amazing mushrooms! They're like something out of a fairytale!


Which then inspired this drawing

Another thing I love about Autumn is layering up all cosy!
Here are some pretty pieces I have my eye on!
(Click on the pictures for links)

Now I'm off to make a big cozy cup of tea!

Disney Couture ♥ Ariel The Little Mermaid

Ever since the Disney Couture collection came out I loved it
Although there are a few pieces that I really don't like, especially the Tom Binns Alice collection (I was really looking forward to that, and was so disappointed)
But mostly I think it's cute

I was so excited when I found out they were creating a little mermaid collection
Ever since I was a little girl I have had a fascination with the sea, especially the idea of mermaids
So this collection is perfect!
I am definitely getting the shark bangle when it comes down in price a little

♥♥ Puppy Flower Bouquets! ♥♥

I was searching for cute puppy pics (I know....It's a habit!)
And found these
Puppy Bouquets!
This is such a cute idea!!
I'd Love one of these

And I had to include this picture as it's so sweet
