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 :)
