Cosy and affordable Cottages from around the world! GO TO ARTICLE

Geelong West, Australia: This cottage has so many adorable features! White picket fence with rose garden, wooden floor boards and original fire places! What a gem.

East Sussex, UK: I would pay good money just for the name ‘Snug Cottage.’ This adorable little 1 bedroom cottage is in the sweet village of Robertsbridge in East Sussex.

Burgundy, France: This three bedroom farm house has lots of rustic charm with exposed beams and brick flooring.


Sew: a flower pot handbag!

Dye a dress: Have you got some lovely piece of clothing but it’s got a mark on it? It always happens to white things! Dye them amazing colours with a home dye kit!

Make some mini art: Postcards from art galleries are an untapped resource for covering your walls in the great masters with a teeny, tiny budget!

From the Editor…

As the cool weather and rain set it, there’s nothing better than snuggling up with a book and a cup of tea, or a craft project to enjoy the indoors, so it’s a craft-heavy issue this Autumn. Stay indoors and make some egg cosies or hot water bottle covers in our craft section, or turn worn-out secondhand furniture into something sumptuous.

Do as the hedgehogs do and hibernate in your nest and squirrel away yummy treats for chilly days, like our apple and raspberry muffins (get the recipe). If the cold gets too much it’s a great time to go holidaying too, and we’re featuring Thailand this issue.

The cosy colours of tabby cats and autumn leaves are our inspiration this season, so put the kettle on and get snuggly!
