It was so lovely to see blue sky again this morning after a week of gloom and drizzle. I've been waiting to get some more pictures of the garden, but it hasn't been very photogenic lately!
The leaves on our big tree (some sort of sycamore) are always beautiful but the colours don't last long. These were some of the first to fall last week.
They're coming down thick and fast now in the wind. I used to love raking them up for the compost, but found they rot down quicker if they're chopped up with the mower first. That's hubby's job later!
I'm still busy making bits and bobs. This week it was some lavender hearts with some vintage fabric and buttons.
Also made a start on the candles. I did make a mistake ordering a couple of fragrances which sounded great on the website, but turned out to be very strong and unpleasant. I've stuck to essential oils which smell gorgeous have no "nasties" in them. Favourites so far are lavender and lime, and vanilla and orange, but I'm still experimenting!
The soy wax is easy to melt in the microwave, I made a couple of candles with each large jugful.
Still working on the labels! I'm not very artistic when it comes to handwriting so might need to create something on the computer :)
Have a good weekend
Bye for now.
