Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Shades of Autumn

Autumn has definitely arrived, although after such a wet summer the change hasn’t been very noticeable. The leaves here are starting to turn gold and brown, and the last of the berries and fruits are just clinging on.

Looking at the fir cones I have started thinking about Christmas decorations already- I’m  torn between using some real cones, or replicating the shape of the pine cones in another material.

If I decide to use real pine cones in my decorations I will have to start collecting perfect-looking ones soon as the birds and squirrels have been stripping them of their seeds, leaving funny-looking husks behind.

The dogs seem to be enjoying the change of season and one of them even managed to stay still long enough to have her picture taken!
