Nature in the Home – a series… (Week 9)

Image via Caroline of Scraps of Us
This weeks image is a beauty! This creative display is by Caroline of Scraps of Us and is of  her inspiration wall in her studio. I love that she has a pink hyacinth in a test tube tied to the wall and a couple of pretty seed heads taped up alongside paint swatches & scraps of fabric.  It is truly beautiful.  I’ve been on ebay to look for a test tube of my own.  Imagine a row of them lining the hall way – wouldn’t that be gorgeous with a simple tulip stem in each?
So, how did we all get on with my foraging challenge?  I am excited to see some really creative and unusual plants gathered from all corners of the globe.  I can’t wait!  I am looking forward to showing you what I’ve found.. later in the week for that.
Did you like a challenge?  Shall we do more?
I was thinking we could pick a colour and show that… or would that be too limiting?  What do you think?
Let me know – I am open to suggestions.

  • I love the challenge idea.

    Sorry I didn’t join in this week – not because I didn’t have foraged bits and pieces, just because I never got around to downloading my photos!

  • I need to get out there and catch up on this series – so many lovely blogs joining in too. Everything in the garden is growing fast now, daily changes it’s amazing to watch – need to gather now and take part again!

  • I think challenges are a lovely idea, and textures as well as colours is a great suggestion!

  • Yep, challenges based on colours or as Helen suggests, textures would be great!

  • Oh Caroline’s post is so inspirational. However, I am looking forward to seeing what you have found. This series is just so great! I am really enjoying seeing all these plants from around the world.

  • Love the idea of a challenge – would be so interesting to see everyone’s take on colours etc. Textures could be themes too – delicate, spiky etc perhaps?

  • I love Caroline’s image, not sure it’d last very long in this house though!

  • i think i am with Jane. a challenge would be great but also be able to link up if not accomplished ;)

  • i would love the idea of a challenge! would still like to be able to link up even if i didnt do it though xxxx

  • Ooh thanks for sharing Lou. I love the idea of more challenges – and a colour sounds great! xx

  • I for one loved the “challenge” feel to this week’s choice. Working with a colour of theme would be so much fun – imagine seeing everyone’s different take on red, for example. Loving this series. x
