Round Robins: Wooden
Our challenge this time around on Round Robins is Wooden, a topic suggested by Kiva of the blog Eclectic Granny. I chose to photograph this bowl my husband made from the base of a backyard Euonymus bush that got completely out of control.
Actually, the Euonymous bowl was my second choice. I had a great little theme going for this, wooden red cherries in a cherry wood bowl made by my husband from a tree that once graced our front lawn. Or so I thought. Hubby Dearest came home as I was wrapping things up Friday and proceeded to burst my bubble:
He: "Uh, honey ... that's not cherry." Me: "Whatta ya mean? Didn't you make this out of that tree we cut down out front? The one the carpenter ants drilled full of holes?" He: "Nope. It's from a chunk o' wood a friend gave me. I think it's maple."
Dang. Well, no matter. It's a cool bowl, and the cherries are kinda cute, and I spent hours fussing with the thing. So you're getting these, too:
As always, there are lots and lots more photos to see over at the Round Robin home page. Be sure to check them out, OK?
