So today's post was going to be another lovely apple recipe but it didn't work. I tried to make apple flapjacks as something different. They failed! They ended up too appley so now they taste exactly like crumble, which I was trying to avoid!
So instead today's post is about squirrels. Yes, squirrels. This had been inspired by my favoutrite autumnal jumper pictured below. One of the weirdest things that ever happened to me was a squirrel falling out of a tree on a very windy day onto my windscreen. I had no idea what was going on. I stopped the car and tried to find it, to see if it was ok, but I think it bounced too far. Now I think the squirrels are out for revenge. They sit in a large oak tree outside my flat and pelt me with acorns. Honestly they wait until I am walking on the road and then start throwing them. It is definitely not that the acorns are naturally falling off the tree.
The other picture below was taken in St James's Park, London where the squirrels are so tame that they are happy to pose for photos. They even climbed up one tourist's leg (much to their surprise!)
I really want this hat for the Autumn but I popped into Accessorize to try it on and my face disappeared! I have a very small head and so usually have to wear kids hats. So if anyone finds some lovely hats in small sizes do let me know!
It is definitely feeling a bit more like Autumn. It is getting darker earlier, cooling down and I have a gigantic spider in our flat! I was going to take a picture to show you all but it made me feel too queasy. I swear it is the size of a mouse! However you all lucked out. I decided that a picture of a very large spider probably wasn't the way to treat my new found blog reader friends. Thank you for your comments and compliments over the last few days.
A friend of mine taught me to needle felt a little while ago. My sister really likes fruits with faces so I made this for her.
Needle felting works by matting woollen fibers together with felting needles. You can then matt together different colours and begin to sculpt shapes.
It's not that I am wishing the summer away but with all the rain my attention has started to turn to my Autumn winter. This year I hope to wear more dresses so I have been playing with outfit options on polyvore. I love this website. I have only just started using it but you can put together sets of outfits and make them look as if they have just come straight out of a magazine. Have a go and send me your outfits!
So maybe it is time to explain the title of my blog. Two of my favourite things are lemons and the colour turquoise (and blueberries but that was making the title a bit long). So in celebration of the colour turquoise and to try and fight against the very grey, rainy scene from my window here are some turquoise photos from my various travels.
