30 days of happiness:: cornerview - conkers!!







Things have been pretty conker-mad around here lately. We now have a huge box full of them, which I quite know what to do with, any suggestions?
The subject for this week's cornerview is 'from my car window'. Well I don't have a car, so you could say this is from the window of my world: gorgeous autumn days, and lots & lots of conkers!

We have something similiar looking like your conkers. They are green outside but smooth with a chestnut looking nut inside. xoxo

conker-days here aswell!
i love them! so beautiful coloured and smooth and the very stingy outside [how do you cal them? in dutch; bolster]

what else to do with those than to put them in a huge bowl or something and just look at them and take 1 in your hand now and then..

Conkers is one of those words I love, maybe because it rhmes with 'bonkers'? :-). Beautiful photos.
