  1. This has to be one of my favourite ever posts of yours – i loved the way you wrote it, the words, and probably because i love Autumn and the month of September – i am going to think about my rentree – thank you xxx

    1. Oh if only I could take credit for it! This is a guest post from the oh so talented Mimi… a women after our own hearts.x

  2. Lovely post, Mimi! This is one of my favorite times of year. I haven't settled on my fall uniform, or my "back to school" activities, but I'm certainly enjoying it still.

  3. Sublime post. So full of yummy ideas! I never really considered a 'rentree' before, but it sounds delicious! I love the idea too of new tablets – in a pretty shade of course, and the different-colored inks that are out there as well. My birthday is coming up and I want a Kindle (since they're on sale now!) and a manicure with the stunning russet brown polish I've got!

  4. I recently "found" you and am so enamored with your site that I'm neglecting my life in favor of reading ever more of your pages. I find you funny, irreverent and human, a kindred spirit in many ways. I'd like to know how you buy the "scents" you use around your home. I'm in New York in a small town and I'm not sure how to buy the things I need so I can "puttery treat" my home. I'm looking forward to getting to know you even better. I think it sounds to me that you are a great Mum and I'm excited with you on you up-coming marriage. I think if we met, we'd be friends . Currently on page 329 of your archives and loving every minute!

    1. Oh Amanda it is always lovely when a new reader de-lurks and says hello, it thrills me, so it is lovely to meet you…
      As far as the things I talk about while puttering, almost all the oils, sweets, cleaning products etc can be found on Amazon.Com, so you should be able to get everything, but if you are still struggling with anything in particular let me know and I will hunt it down for you…x

      1. I just found your reply this morning. I have been busy with your "old" posts, I'm up to page380 now. I've been canning tomatoes these last few days so I've been away from my computer. What a thrill to "speak" with you. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself at Brocante home. I wish I could just walk around the block and visit. Keep up the good work! Thank you for giving words to my thoughts and loving your home like I love mine.
