Its beginning to look a lot like...Autumn!


Its been looking very autumnal recently, so when I went out on a walk at the weekend to feed the ducks with some old bread (much more fun than throwing it away!)  I took my camera with my to take some pictures. I wanted to share with you a few of my favourite pictures. I'm no photographer, but I do enjoy taking the occasional picture :)



Every year I will usually collect a few conkers because I was told that they are a good repellent for spiders. Since I am deathly scared of the eight legged beasts, there hasn't been a spider season that has gone by that hasn't had my house filled with conkers in very corner. During my walk there were lots of conker trees so I decided to collect a few and see what I could do with them, other than using them to repel the spiders. Conkers come in all different shapes and sizes and have a really nice colour when they are nice a fresh, so I think they look great collected together in a glass bowl and put on the side as a cute little autumn decoration. Here it what you could do with just a few conkers and a very small amount of creativity skills! 

I think the conkers look really great between two candles - it gives it that extra touch and make it feel very autumnal! It could also be used as a really lovely centre piece if you are having a dinner party!

Conkers are so simple looking, i think they look equally as good on there own.

This just shows how you need hardly any creativity to be able to give yourself a unique, autumn themed centred piece!
