Who of us when we were kids in school
didn't have a Leaf Collecting and Identification Project?
I also helped my girls go on leaf collecting adventures
every Fall when they were in school.
Displaying and categorizing them was one of my favorite Fall projects.
I love to decorate with Nature and Nature inspired things,
so when I saw this article in this months' Country Gardens Magazine
I just had to share it.

Above, old drawers, boxes and cubbies are lined
with Nature illustrations and botanicals
to help set the stage for our specimens.
What a great way to spend a beautiful Fall day
than taking off on a hike or nature trail with the kids
to find some wonderful objects to display.
Below, just using an old tackle box to show the found treasures.
Frames for leaves
and old boxes for leaf display.
And here are a few more nature inspired Pinterest finds.
Now, I want to head outdoors and see what I can find!
Let's see some of the fun from last week.
Rosemary from Ozma of Odds needs to be a weekly feature,

I'm in love with her Brown Transferware vignette.

Hmmm...seem to be focusing on mantles today!
