If you need any convincing here are a few inspiring furniture refinishes.
I haven't discovered what these are, but I'm sure one of you does, so please let me know. They're about the size of a large grapefruit, they fall from trees, and they have a faint quasi-citrusy smell that I can't decide whether I like or not. I think I recall that they might be poisonous...but they do make a good display........
These are gorgeous leaves from a Ginkgo tree, which apparently is one of the oldest tree species on the planet. I love the fan-like leaves, they'd make a great subject for a painting.
Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend!
Great family time, lots of singing, wonderful food, incredible wine, brilliant setting....and cowboy boots-- naturally, we had no complaints :) but we're still catching our breath!
