The best thing about Autumn is going on a nature hunt! Mally and I went out the other day and had a great time crunching in the leaves, picking up acorns, fir cones and most of all CONKERS! There are tons of horse chestnut trees around here and we soon had a whole bag full. Now, what to do with them?! Back at home, laying them out on the dining table an idea hit - how about a nice centrepiece bowl. As you can tell, that's not what I ended up with!
I started off with laying out all of our conkers. Mally wanted the big round ones, and I wanted the ones with a flat bottom. We were both happy! From here on, this post is actually an account of a series of fails before I was able to get the final piece sorted!
* If you've spotted that this is one of those individual sized casserole pots then bravo! It really was a great big fail!!!!
