Back again, again

Once again, I have been MIA but, I have a good excuse...
You'd think by #8 I'd have a system or something, but I feel like a newbie after the arrival of each one. He is pretty great though and I feel awesome. In fact so awesome that yesterday I did this...

That is the wall of wood (Lulu wanted to be in the picture and how could I refuse). I have collected driftwood and treasures of the like for as long as I can remember. It must be hereditary because the kids have picked up on this as well. Since we have lived in this house, this wall has been a sore spot; very large, very blank, very boring. So many times I have done things that may fill the space and look OK but, don't really represent who we are. I think the wall of wood is the perfect solution. It feels right. Not only are we represented in our sensibility but, the kids can tell you when and where they found nearly every piece. I love it. It is our personal museum.

We used to live on ten acres in a log home in Wisconsin. That house was me. I struggle with finding ways of making this house in the suburbs of Denver a reflection of who I am. The wall of wood works. Tomorrow, I will post another project that has had the same effect. Bye for now.



  1. I love this! How did you hang each piece?

  2. nails and eyeballing it. Thanks to Ryn for her help.

  4. I love it! You're very own portable log cabin on the wall! Looks warm and cozy!
