Re: [Fwd: new pergola/arbor]


EXACTLY...and I have a little shelf of "treasures" at my desk...things that I
find.  A rock, a piece of driftwood, seeds from downstairs, dried flowers, in
the fall-a colorful leaf.  I have a whole JAR full of different feathers. 
People ask me "why?" and I say "why not?  It's free art, made by nature".
