Tree Stumps

I wish we had the where-with-all to convert our Camphor off cuts into something delightful like this! [Perhaps we could get the wood borers to co-operate!]

These are made from Cedar wood. The pierced holes make the stumps lighter and can be used for creative storage!

Made of white cedar, a weed wood in Upper Canada, with tannins giving the wood natural weather resistance.

Great for storing wine.

People can train animals to do all sorts of things - I'm smiling at the idea of the borers!
Now if only you could put signs up for woodpeckers or barbets "Use these!"

If the wood borers where large enough to make holes that big they'd be pretty scary creatures! :)

Nothing to do with wood - Today I was at a Crafter's Market Store (ever noticed how in SA we have now lost the word "shop"?) and saw journals covered in Sari material. So pretty. Thought of you ♥

(Still me - I love Kat's comment! Today in my garden I saw what I think is a baboon spider ... huge ... I still have the heeby jeebs!)

I love these. Not sure what I'd do with them, exactly, but they're really great :)
