A Woodland Home for a Woodland Creature (like me)

I'm tucking these away for future inspiration.
I'm going to turn into a hobbit one day right? That can totally happen.

Nicole Gustafsson, kindred spirit

The Naturalist's Study

Terrarium Tree
I came upon Ms Gustafsson's work at just the right time, I think. Summer has not yet given up the ghost but Autumn is on the verge of charging in with gusts of wind, ripe squash, and the yearly explosion of copper and crimson tree-tops. Not all of Nicole's work is autumnal but a lot seems to fit in with this, the best of all seasons.

All's Well at the Schoolhouse
The Conservatory
Blue Tree Books
Hare House (in the rain!)

Oh, the colours! They're so lovely. Trees growing in unlikely places, terrariums, lanterns, rain. I can't help but be smitten. I want to get all of her card-sets but I won't want to give any away.

Look at all the places you can visit her:

Lanterns. A detail of a larger piece, I think.
Mountain of a Molehill
The Geologist's Study
Whomping Willow
