I’ve often gone hiking and come across some beautiful broken branches. On one river trip down Cataract Canyon (that’s the canyon just before the Grand Canyon and leads into Lake Powell) on the Colorado river I came across the most wonderful gnarled and twisted river branch that had been smoothed from the currents. It couldn’t have been more than two feet long so I packed it into my dry bag and then later shipped it across country to my buddy in New York just because it was so spectacular that she had to see it too. That probably sounds like a silly thing to do, but I guess sometimes I do silly things. I also sent her a cool brick-red colored rock that I found. Yep, you read that correctly. I sent my friend a stick and a stone. :-) But, what I’m getting at here is that nothing is quite as cool as stuff made by Mother Nature. So bringing them into the home can add beautiful, unique and dramatic effects. Just check out some of these super cool decorating with nature ideas. I hope they inspire you to do something wonderfully creative.
