A colour story in creams and browns. I worked on this a couple of weeks ago while all the brown autumn colours were in full swing.
These are the same sunflowers that I used in an earlier post.
Once the flowers started to wilt I pulled off all the bright yellow petals and cut the stems before re-arranging them in a different container.
This is a vintage Bols ceramic bottle with the old label still intact. I think it's funny with the mix of Swedish and Dutch on the label. Bols is the oldest distillery brand in the world.
I love the surface texture and patterns on these little jars - all ravaged by time.
An old pair of scissors - well used - beautiful to look at but not so comfortable to use anymore!
A vintage sack, an apothecary mortar with old ivory curtain rings and games pieces.
Two sailors knots that was on my key ring for many years.
Also some plain brown wrapping paper - an old favourite of mine for wrapping presents adding some interesting ribbon, string or twine.
I love these old rulers and have a small collection of them - some times they are on display and sometimes they are tucked away in some cupboard waiting for me to get inspired.
Below is an old miniature teddy that I had as a child and he used to live in my dolls house. The poor thing has seen better day. It was well loved but is now rather moth-eaten and worn around the edges. But he is still charming!
Have a wonderful day!
Thank you for visiting and I will see you back here soon.
