Oak Inspiration - Folksy Friday No. 23

The weather man said that we were about to return to summer this week. Not here in North Wales at least. Plenty of sunshine - until today, but the garden has all the looks and smells of autumn.

Inspired by the natural harvest I have enjoyed stitching these two brooches of scenes beneath the oak tree:

I wondered whether searching for 'oak' on Folksy would reveal enough treasures for my Folksy Friday. Silly me! Inspired by the bark, the leaf, the fruit... we have stitched, produced ceramics, jewellery, felt.... Not to forget the obvious - the beautiful use of the timber itself. The jewellery box from Tree Gems is exactly the item which I should like to treasure in the timber-framed house which I should love to own!
