Acorns and Conkers

I've so many things I want/need to blog about I don't quite know where to start...holiday snaps, great book finds, recent commissions, future plans... but I think I really should start with these two little pieces, since I listed them on Folksy and Etsy before I went on holiday and then promptly closed both shops (which are now both open again)!



As it's September, I can legitimately rattle on about all things Autumnal, so here are my Friendly Acorn and Friendly Conker designs.  Me and the girls have been collecting a lot of shiny, newly-fallen treasure from the trees lately (we even got a couple of Spanish lads to leap up and grab conker branches for us in a park in Girona the other day) so I thought it would be nice to capture those friendly little nuggets of polished goodness tucked inside their textured cases.

  1. Lovely - so cheerful! I remember collecting conkers in Switzerland once, and a man came up and said worriedly "You know you can't eat them, don't you?"

  5. Fantastic, you've really captured the childhood magic of collecting conkers & acorns. This has never really left me and I look forward to having pockets stuffed with shiney spherical gems soon.
