If you've been reading any time at all you know I'm a big fan of cruising through
your yard, and bringing nature inside to add texture and life to your home.
Free, quick, and convenient ~ it's so easy to clip flowers, herbs, branches, or
greenery from trees and shrubs. However, I think this is a first, do you know what it is?
My newest coffee table accessory...
A closer look...
I turned it over for you...
A closeup of the colors...right on trend!
I liked the juxtaposition of it on the brass tray.
The gold and leopard tray was an inexpensive diy here,
an easy transformation of a $2.99 clear plastic Ikea tray.
It's a Paper Wasp Nest, I found the one below online to show you.
Wasps gather fibers from dead wood and plant stems, which they mix with saliva,
and use to construct water-resistant nests made of gray or brown papery material.
We spotted it up in our tree after all the leaves had fallen,
and found it on the ground a couple days later after some brisk winds.
The muted hues in their marbled pattern and intricate layers couldn't be
more intriguing...nature at its best.
