Early Fall Naturals Garden Tote

We finally had some rain Saturday afternoon, 
which always causes tree debris to fall.
We headed out with our yard containers but I quickly 
got waylaid with some interesting leaves, walnuts, and acorns.
Before I knew it I grabbed one of my chippy white totes
and put together a fun gathering of natural elements.
(Ok, maybe one or two faux, that brought in a little fall color.)

We have quite a few walnut trees and oak trees in back and front. Interestingly, the oak leaves mostly fall off the trees in clumps. Now that they have some acorns attached, they make a cute little bundle.

We have a boat load of walnuts this year so my hubby grabbed his walnut roller and made pretty quick work of them. Unfortunately the squirrels missed out because they're too busy being goofy.

A few mini zinnias, some speckled oak leaves, and walnuts in a bird nest...

A bit of bird seed in a vintage clay pot and a bark birdhouse.

I'm out on the covered back porch with a few of my chippy garden pieces.

This old step stool has been around for awhile. It gets chippy-er each year.
