No trees were harmed

No trees were harmed in the making of my branches.


While I was painting some branches a few days ago, it dawned on me - I would hate for someone to think the branches in my shop came from me hacking away at some poor tree.

All of my branches come from long-been-dead trees. They come from walks in the woods behind my house, or my parents house. And I still have quite a lot that I brought from Austin. Yes, when we moved across country - I packed some branches along.

The idea for my branches came from when our property in Austin was just a graveyard of trees who had perished from the prolonged drought. I even have some neat, very large ones - that I had painted and are now displayed in my livingroom on the wall.

But when I was painting the other day - I thought.. hmm... there may be people who view my listings and think I am willy nilly hacking away at the forest.

Such is not the case, and now I feel better for saying so.

Kristin, I just couldn't picture you hacking away at the trees ;-)
But good thing to let people know about your branches!
Hope you're doing great!

This is so pretty!! We have lots of dead branches behind our house too. It's sort of recycling isn't it :D
