This week, Carole has us out in the woods . . .
listing our Ten Favorite Things Made of Wood.
Let's go . . .
1 - The dock . . . up at our lake cottage. Old now. Splinter-y. Silver with age.
2 - The interior walls of our cottage. Knotty pine. Cathedral ceiling. Painstakingly finished by Tom and my Dad.
3 - The firewood pile up north at our cottage. Relaxing, cozy fires. Always great way to wind down and kick back.
4 - The pergola in my backyard. Probably my favorite place in the garden. Lovingly crafted by my Dad, Brian, and Tom.
5 - My garden potting bench. A long ago birthday present. Rickety, but holding up. My happy place.
6 - My cork collection (which is actually much bigger than this). Did you know corks are made from trees? Yep.
7 - Awesome bookends. Handmade by my brother-in-law. They make me happy everytime I see them in my library.
8 - Custom wood frames. I have them everywhere! My dad - and my brother-in-law, too - make beautiful, custom frames. (I am very spoiled.)
9 - My mezzaluna chopping board. Along with the mezzaluna, it is one of my most-used kitchen gadgets. A must-have for herb-chopping. (Want one? Here's mine.)
10 - A lovely, hand-carved wood bowl. Technically, this is Tom's -- but I love it, too. The photograph does NOT do it justice, so you'll just have to trust me that it's lovely. (The photo in the background? That's Jake -- the Wonderdog.)
How about YOU? What are your favorite things made of wood?
