"Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare went out in the autumn wind.
On a windy day the leaves are blowing."

Can you believe it?
It's here already ~ the Autumn Equinox aka the 1st day of Autumn 2011.
I just love this time of year ~ all my favourite earthy colours surrounding me, sunny but chilly days enough to light the fire in the evening, cross stitch and a good book, tasty chilli-con-carne to warm the bones, Tilly and Oscar snoozing across my slippered feet and rich, hot cappuccino or frothy hot chocolate with melting marshmallows ~ perfect!

So how about an Autumn giveaway so you can share all the things I love?
(Tilly & Oscar not included!!!)
