August is the border between summer and autumn; it is the most beautiful month I know.
I'm not sure I agree with Tove on this one - I find the end of summer achingly painful. But one mustn't dwell. Instead, I'm mooching about on my Autumn Pinterest board, inspired by the ideas there and the beauty of the season ahead.
Teaming up with HomeSense, I have a competition for you this bank holiday weekend to win a gift voucher worth £100. Just head in store, find a product you love that bridges the gap from summer to autumn, and share on social media.
I chose these preserving jars as jam is such a good way to guarantee a sweet taste of summer is yours on a cold, dark day later in the year.
What would you choose?
To enter the competition to win a £100 gift voucher, share your pic of the perfect HomeSense summer to autumn product on Twitter or Instagram, and make sure you tag @HomeSenseUK.
Oh, and what are your favourite jam recipes? I'd love to know. Here are mine:
Plum and Earl Grey
Rhubarb and Vanilla
