Wonderful Wednesday - Feels like Autumn

We have had a few cooler and wetter Autumn days of late, which have been a welcome relief to the intense dryness and heat that we have experienced during some days in Summer.

On Easter Monday, Mr T, my bro and myself went for a bike ride. We are enjoying cycling and have planned to enter some rides later on in the year, hence we are slowly building up the distance and the amount of cycling that we are doing. The ride (one way) was 38km. The day was overcast with a touch of drizzle to begin with, however, we enjoyed cycling along and we found it quite pleasant and not too arduous. After having a little lunch, we set off for the 38km journey back to our starting destination. Then it dawned on us...we were enjoying a lovely tail wind on the way there and we were now going to go against the wind. For the first half of our return journey, it was ok, however once we hit the more open spaces, riding through plains with not a lot of trees for windbreaks, the wind was relentless! Our average speed slowed quite considerably and we began to count down the kilometres. Needless to say, we arrived a little later than expected and a little more sore. Oh well...we made it and felt satisfied in completing it, hence my inspiration for the week is...Autumn.

Lion soft toy by 'The Crafty Little Fox'

Check out this Autumn coloured cutie! Handmade toys ooze love, cuddles and cuteness. I love his gorgeous mane and his cartoon like eyes. Not a scary lion at all!

Spiral bracelet by 'A Little Bling'

What a unique piece of jewellery! I love the brown and gold tones and the way that the beads spiral around. Gorgeous!

Hand knitted scarf by 'Sally Anna Boutique'

I adore scarves! Once again, I love how the brown and gold tones work together. I also love the variety of yarn that is used, adding texture. Stylish for everyday or at a football match.

I hope that this provides you with some inspiration!
