The Simple Things October Issue 88

Autumn is a season to inspire creativity: the explosion of colour, darker indoor evenings that lend themselves to kitchen-table projects and a harvest of fruit, nuts and veg that call out to be pickled, preserved or simply served up for supper.

What you create depends on what ticks your boxes. But the end result doesn’t have to be perfect or prize-winning (in fact, we have a ban on the word ‘perfect’ in The Simple Things) – it’s the process that is enjoyable.

If creativity is about using your imagination to make something new, who says it also has to be something ground-breaking? New-to-you is satisfying in itself. 

There are lots of ‘proudly homemade’ ideas in this issue, whether you like to write or draw, make or knit, grow or cook.

Spend a little time with the magazine and let a project take shape.

Taking time to live well

The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.

We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.

And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
