An illustration of a whole lot of conkers on a pile of leaves.

I was today years old, when I learned what a conker is, and that it is not the same as a chestnut. See, in Dutch we have the same name for them (kastanjes). The main difference would be that a chestnut is a “tamme kastanje” and a conker would be called a “paardenkastanje” or “wilde kastanje” and the latter is poisonous, as it contains a chemical called aesculin. Wow.

But I enjoyed drawing this! And I learned something new.

Rosie loves way too many things; games, crafting, drawing, painting, design, sewing plushies, planners, music, movies, series. On this blog she shares her creations and other snapshots of stuff she likes.

You might know Rosie from her Twitch channels RosieSoCosy (English) / Rosiewosie (Dutch), her YouTube channels, her planner shop Retro Hugs, or perhaps SimsNetwork, her Sims fansite she started back in 2000.
