                                    Linking up with :



  1. Love this easy idea Linda. I saw a small birch tree lying the ditch when we were walking and asked hubby to get it for me. Well, it's still laying there! Maybe on Monday we'll take a little drive and rescue that tree from the ditch before it's buried under snow. ;)

  2. Love this so much!! Like Pamela I just saw some big birch branches in someones yard just laying there. I am tempted to go back and ask if I can take it off their hands!! :)

  3. Nice....
    And easy,too...
    Do you use the tools???

    Linda :o)
