autumn garland


I made an autumn garland to hang from the mantlepiece, using chinese lanterns, cones, old mans beard (wild clematis), ash keys and acorn shells. I am really pleased with it, using finds from our nature walks, plus the chinese lanterns from my friend Rachel, which are rather amazing.

  4. I LOVE this picture - the simplicity of the shelf, the clock, the candles and dainty garland. I'm growing some chinese lanterns which haven't 'lanterned' this year but I hope they will next year. I grew them purely for use as decoration in the house.

  8. I had never seen Chinese Lanterns until I moved to Denmark and we have a huge plant/bush (not sure which) in our communal backyard. It isn't madly flowering so I don't like to nab any in case the neighbours object. But it always makes me smile. x
