Nature treasure shelf

24 Aug

We have a new addition to our nature table.

This box originally contained a gorgeous little wooden cake set that The Limpet got for her birthday. When I looked inside the box I realised that it would be a perfect storage container for found treasures.

It also has the added bonus of being able to be pushed back against the wall and out of the reach of The Gannet who still likes to eat everything he finds.

Summer nature table

14 Jul

I think it has officially been summer for a little while now but unfortunately our English climate seems unaware of this fact.

We had really enjoyed our spring nature table so were keen to update it for the new season. I painted a new watercolor picture to represent a summer time tree. The shells are from our local beach. Ok, I have to admit, they were bought and not collected at the beach. We don’t live anywhere exotic enough for these types of shells. Hopefully during the summer we will get to add some collected treasures from our days out.

The little bunches of flowers are all collected from our garden. It’s good to know that even though the sun is rarely shining, the garden is still producing beautiful flowers and delicious soft fruit.
