although this blog is new, i have been blogging ELSEWHERE for a short while now....and this morning when it came time to post, i realized i was stumped for ideas! as for creativity, work has been insane this week...very challenging with exciting results! 

then i got to thinking...i have this neat photo of a tree stump that had been re purposed into a lovely outdoor table....
and a-ha, we have a blog post!

the simple act of bringing a tree stump into the home is such an easy way to enjoy a little nature in your life! i think they can blend well into many different types of decor, and they are so fun to be re purposed for tables, seating, and planters...

  1. I've been wanting to make some simple, rustic benches out of stump halves. And isn't it amazing how inspiration is often right in front of you, waiting to be picked? :)

  2. I'm in love with the stumps-as-coffee-table photo. Gorgeous idea!

  3. sanja, so inspiring! would love to see what you come up with, please send us pictures!

  4. Please don't show this to Joey, I'll have a forest in my home. :)
