Hi everyone - Friday at last, hurrah!!!!
Lets start off with the latest photo for the Autumn Views Challenge
Definitely less leaves, with the remaining ones on the branch in the foreground beginning to curl up at the edges. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this is a photo taken from a footbridge over the many brooks in our town. The next photo shows the bridge where I take the Autumn View from as there are 2 bridges parellel to each other:
The looks, dear readers, that I get from other on-foot or on-cycle commuters when Im taking pics on my travels into work cause me a great deal of amusement...Im sure you know the kind of looks I mean....
Anyway here are a few more autumnal scenes captured this week on my walk into work:
Anyway, now onto my thrifty finds! I often read about bloggers who are fortunate enough to find absolutely wonderful and cheap things when nosing around flea markets or charity shops. Up until recently I had not been so fortunate myself. But, I very happy to report that my fortunes seem to be changing!
This morning, at 8.15 I happened upon our local flea market just as the stall holders were setting up shop and I spotted this little treasure
Its a Midwinter Sugar Bowl in the Cornfield design - Im so chuffed with it as it appeals to my Autumnal Nature!!
So there I was, happy with myself over this little treasure. Tootled along to work "well chuffed". Well, they say lightening doesnt strike twice, but my luck was certainly in twice today... at lunch time I just happened to look in the window of a little charity shop near my workplace and guess what? Another Midwinter find - this time a Biscuit Barrel with Autumnal Rudbeckia flowers as the motif!!
So I was pretty much doing the Snoopy Dance - metaphorically speaking of course, I wouldnt do that in the street....
Well, after all this excitement I should be putting my feet up with a mug of cocoa and a biccie, but Ive got to do the weekly shop so better sign off for now!
Have a great weekend!
