Woods Wail Like Echoes From The Sea

'I say: Alas ! our fruit hath wooed the sun
Too long; 'tis fallen and floats adown the stream.
Lo, the last clusters! Pluck them every one, 
And let us sup with summer; ere the gleam
Of autumn set the year's pent sorrow free,
And the woods wail like echoes from the sea.'
D.G Rossetti.

The above items in the shop were all inspired by Mrs William Rawnsley and the Autumn months from her book 'The New Forest'.  It was one of the first things I found when we first moved back from London.
The Rawnsley's are an important part of the history of the forest and being the book geek that I am, I saw finding this book a sure sign that we were home now.

Mrs Rawnsley beautifuly curated book is a month by month account of the seasons changing, combining her writing and illustrations with wonderful Edwardian poetry like the Rossetti example above.

 I have read every month since we moved back and it is fast approaching us being here a year now.
I am so happy and excited to see the Autumn months in this magical place and to see if much has really changed since 1904.

So yes the shop has taken an Autumnal tumble (sorry to all of you in the Southern Hemisphere), but something I know you can all appreciate is the big 'H' word! Keep your eyes peeled for more Halloween themed items arriving this week and click on any of the photo's in this post to visit the shop.
