spoils of fall

One of the best things about fall is the ability to harvest free & lovely home decor to celebrate the season. I have worn a fall corsage, eaten pumpkin treats, and made acorn charms for a necklace. But nothing compares to gathering the beauty of nature and putting it all on display. Here are some of the fall items I enjoyed finding on our family walks this month. Though last month’s chinaberries are still some of my favorites they aren’t as interesting as these bois d’arc fruit! Every time I find these and show them off I have a friend or two say they’ve never seen anything like them before. They are an interesting species, a great insect repellant and such a pretty color. The extra large bur oak acorns are fun finds too. I might even admit to a slight bit of trespassing to collect some. Any fall trespassing happening at your house?
