#GratefulReads Day 6 - Book gifted to you

I‘m so grateful that my parents‘ love of historical-based mystery fiction meant they encouraged me to read books like this when I was a teenager - this one remains a favourite of mine.

Day 22 #FallIsBooked - Witch

Out and about in a Devon fishing port and discovered these witch balls hanging from a pub ceiling - I‘ve loved these since I was little, because my grandmother used to have 3 of them hanging on her kitchen wall. They come in all different colours and sizes and were traditionally used as a fishing float, then in the 17th century they were hung up to ward off evil spirits.
