Last weekend, we went to @osterleyhousent for the Pumpkin Festival. It was an unexpectedly sunny day, and it was lovely to walk with Edward around the woodland trail – building dens, jumping on hay bales, toasting marshmallow, and carving a little pumpkin to take home with us. Grandad did the carving, but Edward was a very engaged creative director.
I also managed to visit the gift shop for the first time. There were so many beautiful things, and I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of baubles from the new Winter Twilight collection – a gorgeous new range inspired by winter’s serene beauty. The one in the foreground is filled with luxury vanilla fudge (which I haven’t tried yet – I am saving it until Christmas), while the one in the background has a delicately pretty wreath pattern painted on it. I also fell in love with some of the kitchen items from this range, especially the apron which makes me want to start baking Christmas gingerbread.
The whole collection is also available at the National Trust online shop, and I’ve managed to get a 10 per cent off discount for my followers. Just use MINAW2017 at the checkout (terms and conditions apply). Everything you buy from the National Trust, whether online or at one of their properties, helps to support their work in protecting special places forever, for everyone.
