some of you might know....
I like wood.....
rustic....weathered....
I always think about the process it took...
the tree it came from....
the work that went into it...
then the elements that turned it into what it is today...
this is on a stalk in my FIL's back yard...
not sure what it is ....but thought it was cool...
any ideas????
found this empty nest...
pulled it down....
someone suggested putting it on a wreath...
I'm thinking about it....
maybe collecting a few more...
vaccant ones for sure...
