Joan from Nicer Than New loves birch trees and even has four birch tree paintings in her house to prove it! A huge ice storm before Christmas left the streets in Joan’s neighborhood with piles of birch branches, some of which were white, straight, and beautiful. Joan collected the branches and toted them home for simple yet stunning décor – compliments of Mother Nature!
As an oil painter, Oksana from Sparrow’s Haven constantly finds herself seeking inspiration from nature, specifically trees. Therefore, it seems only fitting that she would want to bring the object of her fascination indoors. Oksana created these natural stump tables from an oak tree her husband and father-in-law cut down in the woods surrounding her home. I love how she utilized the hollowed center of the larger stump as a planter!
