Summerstorm: The good things!
Hey there, Internet!
A few psost ago I told you about that scary Summerstorm we had during our barbecue night here in Germany, today’s post is about some good things this storm brought! Whenever there is a storm, things break, while this can be sad for plants and animals (there were a lot of dead birds, rats and other small animals lying around, people who do taxidermy would have found some treasures for sure.) I was impressed by all the big branches you were able to find everywhere. As mentioned I got to take some of the cracked chestnut tree with me so I left most of the other branches in their place. The big one with a lot of twigs seemed to be perfect for decorating my bedside space. The twigs are perfect to continue the hanging bat sky from above my bed and with some chains I also can use it to store jewelry that I don’t wear that often.
Those of you that follow my blog a few days longer already might remember the autumn/halloween/witchy-kitchen plan and will get a small update here, too. The bigger limb that I took home with me found its place in an unused corner in said kitchen. I think I might have to add a bit of decoration to it though, maybe some pumpkin-light-strings? Also hoping the herbs I have in my kitchen won’t get afraid of that dead tree’s body part next to them.
And even though this was not a storm leftover from that night but quite suits the posts theme, when I went trekking with Alex a few weeks ago I also found the ‘perfect’ birch branch for another wall that was still empty, planning to put a dresser for books and knick-knacks underneath later.
Do you use things you find in the nature for DIY or home decor as well? Share some inspiration with us? Have a nice evening!
