'Winter Walks' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

Yesterday saw the end of the Ramblers’ Festival of Winter Walks for another year. And what a glorious winter’s day it was too! Bright sunshine, blue sky and crisp & frosty underfoot. We’ve had a leisurely stroll through Etsy to look at the various representations of this simple pleasure – snow, woodland and dogs feature prominently – our idea of the perfect winter walk!

Out & about… Autumn

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

It’s been a long time since our last Out & about post – we even missed the whole of summer!

Flower-filled fields feel a distant memory…

…the flowers gave way to autumn leaves…

…mushrooms…

…and berries.


For the first couple of weeks of autumn we had the best of both worlds – sunshine as well as amazing seasonal colour.

We were seeing butterflies until quite late in the year…

…but there was no doubting that summer was over, as the winter-visiting geese were beginning to arrive.

Even the autumn sunshine is now a thing of the past – it seems to have been raining non-stop for almost a month. But now we’re into December, this rain will hopefully turn to snow which will mean a magical white Christmas!

Out & about… December

We’ve got some lovely winter scenes to share with you this month.

December saw the first of the winter frost…

…followed closely by the first winter snowfall.

Fudge loves it when it snows!

He’s not the only one – we find going for walks in scenery like this quite magical!

On clear days the low winter sun gives a beautiful light…

…amazing skies…

…and some memorable sunsets…

We took these next photos at the annual Christmas Market in Manchester city centre.

So many tempting things on offer…

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas… best wishes for 2009!
