Busy with Autumn!

Wee Folk Are Always Busy with Autumn!



     Leif, the little green Elf helper of mine,  simply insisted that the big magic pumpkin be brought to the Willodel Village. Some other pumpkins had arrived earlier, but the new one has a very special presence to it & could not be denied left out! We were also smitten with the beautiful persimmons that had arrived at the market, along with the wee pumpkins----all in the wonderful warm colors of turning leaves and golden light only found in Autumn. 


 Everyone was gathering in the village to share their Autumn finds...
   This is the Tinker Elf! 
.   Wee Folk are busy helping collect Autumn treasures!

   Below are the finds of a day of foraging. One morning I woke up to a gentle rain starting and realized that I needed to collect wild things before they  became weathered!  My dog and I went out right away and gathered much & had such a lovely morning.
   Among our finds of acorns & seedpods, were large milkweed seed pods, a common wild growing plant. At Willodel we always saw these as little boats or "coracles" for wee folk. We were also lucky to find young Sugar pine and Spruce cones on the ground. The beautiful leaves come from wild Geranium. Poppy seed pods are what I make Fairy Crowns from and they have become very popular amongst our wee friends.  The acorn caps are also favored for Fairy bowls and cups.



We love putting all these treasures on our 
Eflin Nature Bench!

Here on a little nature shelf is a wonderful Autumn gathering collection, including some Fairy stones and seashore treasures














Please remember to look at my tutorials for many projects using Autumn Foraging:-)
