We love Walnut Crafts – walnuts are one of my favourite “craft materials” ever (I may be fibbing there, I am rather partial to Toilet Roll Crafts too) – and probably this stems from early childhood memories of making walnut boats and walnut babies….

Autumn Fairy Lights – Physalis Crafts

Oooh one thing I really like in Autumn is that beautifully orange Physalis (aka Chinese Lantern or Japanese Lantern). It is bright orange, delicate (but not too delicate) and quirky. And I love it.
