You may remember that we recently launched a new collective project to document and celebrate autumn over on Instagram. On the autumn equinox we invited you to share your seasonal photos with the hashtag #inspiredbyseasons_autumn.

There have been all sorts of beautifully creative ideas, from wildlife inspired textile designs and pretty flat lays to beautiful wreaths of seasonal foliage, berries and flowers.

Anyone can join in, so do hop over to Instagram and share your autumn pics using #inspiredbyseasons_autumn and tag us too (@mimosastreet).

Next week, our favourite capture will also win a hand screen-printed pouch by Greengage Studios, along with a Tea Mix Seedball tin so that you can grow your own herbal tea.

Drum roll please! Thanks for all of your beautiful #inspiredbyseasons_autumn pics. The gallery is awash with autumn loveliness, making it hard to pick a winner of the Seedball tin and hand screen-printed pouch! After much deliberation, the prize goes to @fourbearsandme for this beautiful autumn wreath.

We'd love to see your photos of autumn's changing colours, seasonal flatlays (think foraged autumn loveliness, for example) and autumn-inspired craft projects. If you'd like to get involved, tag @mimosastreet in your posts too and we'll share some of our favourites here on the blog and over on our Instagram feed.

Albert Camus hit the nail on the head when he described autumn as “a second spring when every leaf is a flower."

We love this season of colourful foliage and squirrels busying themselves among the fallen leaves. To celebrate its arrival we are giving away a bundle of prizes over on Facebook. Entering is easy, just like our page and comment on the competition post telling us why you love autumn.

Best of luck!
