So I was in the yard the other day, removing the dried stems from the poke berry plants that were left over from fall. I started breaking up the dried stems and had a bunch in my hand ready to toss away. When I looked in my hand ...I quickly thought how would these look wrapped up in twine. I thought the variation in color and texture was interesting and pretty.
My kids on the other hand, looked at me like I had lost my mind.
(what they don't know, is that happened along time ago)
I said to them, their twigs ... they were free.
They said , yeah we can see that. Looking at me as if an arm just sprouted out of my head.
For what its worth, I like the way they look and the natural texture they add to the decor.
And when I don't want them anymore ... I won't feel guilty about throwing them out ... because they didn't cost a dime:)
Have any of you bought,found or made something, that made your family shake their heads at you? Feel free to share it :)
