Last of the summer sun

Last week in the south we got a rough reminder that winter is on the way, however the sun is out again this week and the temperature has bounced back dramatically, giving us hopes of a bit more balmy weather before we snuggle down into hibernation.

With that in mind we went looking for a few ways to enjoy these precious warm days, and found some lovely ideas for all the family.


We’ve got some great play tents for the kids, or how about sending them racing round the yard on their very own good old-fashioned hobby horse? (We think that colourful hobby horse Lexi, below, is just gorgeous!) We can even supply the perfect accessory for the young Robin Hood or Maid Marion – a clever children’s bow from toymaker Woodbotherer which fires harmless paper straws – brilliant!

Green-fingered garden fiends will love this practical gardener’s caddy from Bounce, designed to fit a standard plastic bucket – how clever is that? And if you’re heading further afield for some tramping and bushwalking, we recommend you don’t leave home without a copy of Felt favourite Fast and Light‘s book of tramping recipes and food options.



Finally, what can beat a relaxed meal on the deck with family and friends? This rustic outdoor table from Touchwood should seat the whole tribe. Make sure you grab the last of those light evenings while you can!
