It’s been a little while, my friends, since I put together a decent link round-up. So much splendid content, so little time (and brain power).
I’ve also been enjoying some lovely autumnal things; seasonal jewellery (check out my beautiful bear necklace above: SQUEE), crunchy leaves, lentil soup. Autumn is the month I am most me. And as Mr J-M says, October is my Halloween Advent. (On that theme, if you keep an eye on my blog’s Facebook page, I am posting a seasonal treat (more or less) every day in Gothtober. Check it out!)
Anyhoo, let’s get to some links shall we? There are some rather good ones here, and they are in plentiful supply after my extended break. I hope you enjoy.
