Twigs - n- Twine

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 :)

Come Party here ...

  1. I think they look great! I've seen any number of wildflowers and such made into bouquets. They do add some texture and greenery and sit very nicely in the crate with your other items! I like it!!! :)

  2. Ok. I absolutely love this. I have a major thing for sticks and twigs, and yes, my children think it's crazy. I will definitely be doing this in my house! BTW, thanks so much for visiting my blog and following. I'm following you now, too. :)

  3. So cute! And your twigs look great in the crate along with the birdhouse. Love it!!
