I finally finished raking what seemed like a never ending supply of leaves, and managed to save a few for some crafts. I’m hoping you did too.
Acorns, those lovely little oak tree droppings, can easily be found this time of year. Head outside with your little ones, and have them fill their pockets with these treasures, so they can come home and paint them.
I vanished once again, this time to Italy. And despite a pretty intense heat wave, it was amazing. One of our many stops included Sacro Bosco, also known as Parco dei Mostri (Park of Monsters). Now how could a name like that not inspire a project. This sculpture filled garden was conceived of in the 16th century by Pier Francesco Orsini in honour of his deceased wife, Giulia Farnese, and designed by Pirro Ligorio, with the sculptures by Simone Moschino. It was a wonderful and surreal environment to visit. So with only a short time until Halloween, I say bring on the monsters.
