Every month, I plan to join in with Katy and Charlotte and their wonderful ‘Styling the Seasons’ posts, but every month, the last day rolls around and I find I’ve missed it again. But, not this time – I finally managed to get organised for September. Hurrah!
I always think of September as a pretty funny month; it’s not quite summer but not quite autumn – especially this year, as the last week or so has been warmer and sunnier than most of August was! On our walks we’ve found heaps of treasures that represent both seasons beautifully, so my Styling the Seasons post is celebrating the best of both worlds; gloriously vibrant leaves, dried teasels and seed heads, dusky hydrangeas, the last of the antirrhinums and pine cones galore. We’re planning on using the leaves to make prints and autumn garlands, but for now, I popped them into these double-sided frames from the lovely Tigerlilly Quinn shop. The theme this month was vintage treasures, so I included my (admittedly rather small) collection of Observer nature books, my vintage earthenware pot from Wild Damson in Petersfield and a couple of old glass bottles. They’re regulars on the mantle anyway, so nothing new there!
