Hanging on to Autumn...








We went for a walk in the woods this weekend and some of the light was amazing...November rocks, especially when the frost comes, but if we could just hang onto the Autumn colours a smidge longer...









My version of an autumn wreath is definitely more messy and scruffy than those you usually find in magazines -I think I just raided my stash of bits and bundled what looked appealing together!



I used:
Garden wire and some fine jewellery wire;
Raffia;
Ribbon;
Some scraps from one of hubbies old farmer shirts;
Dried lemon slices;
Star anise;
A few buttons

...And just went for it. Looks cute, smells ace!
