Bookshelf at my parents' place. One thing I loved about my childhood was how filled with books it was, and how my parents didn't make much of a distinction between children's books and adult books. I remember coming across a big illustrated copy of Ted Hughes' Cave Birds and being fascinated by it as a child, both the words and Leonard Baskin's amazing illustrations. As an adult I filled my home with books too, but when I moved to Mongolia I took only one suitcase with me and had to pick just three books to take. I picked Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Viriconium by M John Harrison, and Eliot's The Wasteland. It was just before the advent of the kindle, and getting hold of books in English was really difficult there, so I read and reread those books countless times. When I had to leave in a rush, I had to leave them behind, and it was heartbreaking, even though I knew I could get new copies. What would you take, if you could pick just three? πŸ‚ #bookstagram #shelfie #shelflife #bibliophile #booklover #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #cherishandrelish_november #changingseasons #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #nothingisordinary #todaysgoodthing #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #winteriscoming #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #ofquietmoments #myquietbeauty #finddailyhygge #thisautumnlife #bookishhygge

Hand painted mahogany trinket box sold last week in Malvern. There's something meditative about painting a large number of very tiny leaves! πŸ‚ #cherishandrelish_november #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #howihue #nothingisordinary #todaysgoodthing #mytinyatlas #livewild #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #winteriscoming #handpainted #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #finddailyhygge #artistsoninstagram #ofquietmoments #findingmyhygge #myquietbeauty #autumn #hygge #thisautumnlife #thatautumnmagic #myhyggehome

Exploring east Germany earlier this year. This whole town was covered in ornamentation and strange beasts, and I have it in my head to go and spend the winter there next year. Nothing gets me in the mood for travel like autumn and winter. Are you planning next year's travels yet? πŸ‚ #cherishandrelish_november #changingseasons #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #howihue #germany #nothingisordinary #todaysgoodthing #mytinyatlas #livewild #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #winteriscoming #windowsanddoors #windowwatching #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #ofquietmoments #travelgram #girlsgoneglobal #myquietbeauty #autumn #autumnlight #hygge #thisautumnlife #thatautumnmagic

This week has been a bit of a whirlwind - I've slept in four different places and only one of them was home; been to Cardiff twice for poetry events; done my first Christmas event (ongoing today!); taught an all day workshop on ekphrastic poetry, and managed to fit in a day at the library and some jewellery making too. Now I'm on the final day, and I've forgotten all the things I was going to reward myself with once the week was over. And to be honest, it hasn't been nearly as tiring as I thought it would be - we can always get so much more done than we think we're capable of. Hoping your weekend is going swimmingly. ❀️ #cherishandrelish_november #changingseasons #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #howihue #ukpotd #nothingisordinary #todaysgoodthing #mytinyatlas #livewild #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #winteriscoming #frostymornings #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #ofquietmoments #thewildnesstonic #quietinthewild #myquietbeauty #autumn #autumnlight #hygge #thisautumnlife #thatautumnmagic

A window into Autumn. πŸ‚ I'm off to Great Malvern tomorrow for the Elmslie House Blue Magpie makers market - I'll be there all day on both Saturday and Sunday, do pop in if you can make it as there are some amazing artists and craftspeople there that I'm already excited to be showing with!

Spent the day teaching some lovely poets about ekphrastic poetry up at Paradise Farm today, which has the best views down the valley towards Presteigne. I'm in for a busy week this week - Cardiff tomorrow for the book of the year awards, home on Tuesday, wearing my librarian hat on Wednesday, then back to Cardiff for a reading at the central library on Thursday! Then this weekend I'll be in Great Malvern for the @elmsliehousemalvern designers fair.

Isn't it strange, the things you find yourself missing about old houses? For 8 years I lived in the country outside Windermere in the Lake District, in a flat that was part of a beautiful old house (that you can see in my stories!). I miss it lots - but one of the things I find myself thinking of wistfully is the long beech hedge that stretched the length of one our two long driveways. In the winter the auburn leaves would stay on it, even in the snow, and the glimpse of that warm colour amongst all of the white and black and grey always gave me a feeling of home. πŸ‚ #fbf #memoriesofhome #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #howihue #nothingisordinary #todaysgoodthing #mytinyatlas #livewild #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #ofquietmoments #thewildnesstonic #quietinthewild #myquietbeauty #autumn #autumnlight #hygge #thisautumnlife #thatautumnmagic #tree_magic #autumncolours

Seven ancient chestnut trees grow in the parkland at Brampton Bryan. A wren was nested in this one, and darted out through the twisted, half-dead limbs as we stooped underneath it, sifting through the nuts that squirrels had left. We came home with all our pockets full, but the chestnuts are small this year. Maybe I'll plant some instead of eating them, and grow a chestnut tree of my own. πŸ‚ #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #howihue #poetsofinstagram #nothingisordinary #todaysgoodthing #wildfood #foraging #mytinyatlas #livewild #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #ofquietmoments #thewildnesstonic #quietinthewild #myquietbeauty #autumn #autumnlight #hygge #thisautumnlife #thatautumnmagic #tree_magic #splendid_woodlands #seasonspoetry

Look at the amazing Autumn sweater @tassunalla knitted specially for Pippin! It arrived yesterday all the way from Finland, along with some yummy chocolate and a little piece of her wonderful work to hang on the wall. Alas, Pip proved unwilling to pose with it, or to stay still for long at all really, but he's been scuttling around proudly in it all day today. ❀️❀️❀️ #sweaterweather #dogsofinstagram #ilovemydog #yorkshireterrier #yorkiesofinstagram #todaysgoodthing #creativeinthecountryside #aseasonalyear #nothingisordinary #mytinyatlas #livewild #livefolk #liveauthentic #quietthechaos #thatsdarling #aseasonalshift #seekthesimplicity #calmversation #littletreasures #ofquietmoments #myquietbeauty #autumn #autumnlight #hygge #thisautumnlife #thatautumnmagic
