Styling the Seasons: November

Just *squeezing* in on the last day of are my pics for Apartment Apothecary and Lotts & Lots' inspiring Styling the Seasons project. For my November I'm channelling gentle winter whites with a sprinkling of autumnal burnt oranges and reds just holding on: 
I've included the London map as this month has felt a bit like limbo for me, so this sums up feeling a little bit lost in the city...
The beautiful lights (yet to be lit!) were kindly given to me by the lovely people at Cable & Cotton. I'm hoping to be using these in another future post too, but thought they are a nice gentle addition to these shots:
The orange jar is full of carrots pickled in mead, not my own creation unfortunately but just love that colour!:
Keeping it simple this month - but looking forward to bringing on some patterns and festive cheer next month...roll of Christmas!

Extra bonus points to November - with the addition of these four cosy pairs of woolly Catherine Tough socks to my winter wardrobe. I'll be living in these guys 'til oh about April (what! I've got cold feet ok!? And y'know who could resist fluffy flamingoes!).

November: the best bits

This has been November. These were the best bits:

Popping over to super sweet and super talented Teri from The Lovely Drawer's home for a beautiful blogger brunch. So lovely to spend time with such an inspiring bunch. It was a pleasure to giggle, chat and meet them all - catching old friends, finally meeting longtime online pals and brand new lovelies too.

I had the pleasure of afternoon tea-ing (my first!) at the wonderful Sketch Gallery - now want my home to be both blush pink and covered with David Shrigley art. The food weren't half bad either.
This made me smile, no need for the Selfridge Nutella personalisation service then:
I nearly (happily) drowned in the most beautiful Liberty fabrics at the Styling the Seasons workshop, but more on this later (you're going to LOVE it)...
Had a whistlestop tour of the wonderful Renegade Craft Fair (could have spent all day there!) managed to get my mitts of a super sweet Hello Harriet phonecase:
And topped the month off today with my annual pilgrimage to the Donna Wilson sample sale and picked up these treats. It's on until Sunday if have a chance!
