Friday Style Find

Birch. 
I think all designers are programed to love it from birth. Recently, Mrs. H and I happened upon a birch being felled and stopped to offer help with clean up by removing the straight branches.
We stuffed my truck full, really FULL and giggled at our awesome find.
Coincidently, we'd both bought oversized hurricanes the week before. 
Who knew we'd find a purpose for them so promptly?
Mr. H helping with precision cuts.
Voila!
Happy Friday Loves! Wishing you all a fantastic weekend... and as always, welcome to any newcomers and thanks to those who always stop by. I cherish you all! 
xoxo Ms. Moth

Love this! What a lucky find! The rustic quality of the birch is so perfect with the modern, sleek lines of the glass cylinder. Love the contrast! I also giggle reading about "Mr.H" I call mine Mister Husband as well :)

What a GREAT idea!
And yes, you are right, all designers DO love birch, it must be the white bark with specks of black.... See, we only need to look to nature for design inspiration!! Know where to look, and you shall find! :)

I really do love birch...my old family cottage is in the middle of nowhere and is surrounded by tons of birch trees so I grew up drawing on birch bark haha

Great find!!

So simple, yet so lovely! I too recently stumbled upon a beach filled with some fun findings: drift wood. Dragging it all home my husband said I looked like a homeless gathering wood for shelter.

What a great find! I grew up with a giant birch tree in my backyard. We have plans of planting one when we address our landscaping. Love the white bark and the branches make for great indoor decorating!
