collecting in the sun

We have been at it again, collecting conkers, So nice to have enthusiastic children set out with empty bags to see what they can find. And this is a new stomping ground for us, a park in a neighbouring town that has a veritable avenue of horse chestnut trees laden with conkers, brilliant! It also has a few funky tree sculptures, like this one Luce is admiring.

Back indoors, I have wanted to fabric-wrap a traditional lamp shade frame for ages since I saw the idea in Marie Claire Idees. I finally found a suitable lampshade at a local charity shop, and when my favourite green linen trousers became threadbare this month, I decided to chop them up! So here it is, not a very good pic as the sun is making it tricky :)
