As we all do our day character walks this summer and pick up interesting stones, feathers, shells, twigs, and maybe even antlers we locate on our way, let’s think about creative ways we can integrate these tiny treasures in our decor, either as temporary reminders of this character outside or inspiration for a permanent fixture.

The smallest finds are the ones which can easily get lost in the shuffle or look junky. A traditional way to elevate those finds would be to bring a sense of wonder by exhibiting them beneath the glass of a bell jar, otherwise known as a cloche.
An intriguing arrangement in this bell jar stipulates a delicate bird’s nest sitting on small tower of books. The only real nearby provides a relaxed note to the analysis in character.
Some people are turned off my the rustic lodge look of antlers along with the concept that a deer was hunted to display the antlers. In actuality, deer shed their antlers annually so finding one (or purchasing it) is a great coup. Their natural branch like forms are a legitimate celebration of nature’s beauty.
