We came, we saw, we conkered!

'Tis the season to be rustic, tra la la la laaa la la la laa!



Autumn is upon us and this is a fantastic time to start bringing nature into your home in a decorative fashion. We are all aware that a vase of flowers on a mantelpiece can bring instant style and class to a room, but what about looking a little further a-field and using other elements of nature to create a stylish focal point?
At this time of year you will find red, orange, golden and pink leaves, conkers, berries, and of course flowers, all of which are free and easily accessible if you know where to look.



I took advantage of the season, went out to the countryside and collected a huge bag of conkers! All I have done is lazily poured them into this blue glass vase and VOILA! a lovely rustic accessory for my front porch!




Even if you don't have a suitable container for your rustic finds, why not dot a handful here and there to add a touch of nature to your nest?
