Autumn Leaves


My favourite time of year and my favourite place.

It took me a while to be able to get out of the house this morning cause of all the things I felt I needed to do and the stress/worry/anxiety I was feeling.  But then I realised the thing I really needed to do was take some time for me - to feel, create, be appreciated and feel safe; so here I am at Little Bird SOS.
What a fabulous morning.  We made bowls out of leaves.
I love walking through leaves and scrunching them underfoot but today we took the time to rummage through them by hand and pick out our favourite ones to make a bowl; lovely.


The smell of the leaves, the colours, the shapes and the beautiful company of beautiful people has been well worth the £5 I can only just afford.

If you would like to make your own leaf bowl, there is a detailed tutorial on the 'Thinly Spread' website where we found the inspiration for this weeks Revive Session

Thank you to Jen for helping us prepare for the session
