When I was little, my family and I would go walking up in the woods. It surprises me to this day how so many families don't think of this as being a great day out. We'd go up to Castell Coch, and tramp through the woods there. With a picnic of sandwiches, salty crisps, slices of veg, and hard-boiled eggs, it made the whole day really great. We would also take a pack of cards, so that if it began to rain too hard to go out, we could stay in the car and play rummy.

It might not seem like a particularly common choice for favourite things, but I chose to create a post on trees because there are actually a great deal of tree-based items that sell very well. It seems that trees can be incredibly pliable in the name of art, with so many different ways to design them.

Notes: These are in order of price only. Please bear in mind that I can't vouch for any of these sellers (these are not things I've bought, but things I want) but I'm sure they are lovely honest people. ^_^ All prices, dates, names, etc, are correct at the time of publishing.


  1. What a beautiful treasury! Thank you so much for including my collage sheet - I'm honoured. I find trees incredibly inspiring, especially in autumn and winter when the leaves have gone and the branches create all sorts of interesting negative space...

  2. Thank you so much for doing this! I feel so uplifted when I think that there are people like you who help others when the 'normal' viewpoint in business these days is that it's dog eat dog world and every man for himself! I am becoming your follower right now and please let me know if there is anything of a promotional nature that I can do for you.
    The other items on here are awesome as well. True talent in abundance! xx

  3. Aren't they just? ^_^ Thanks very much for the offer, but I'm probably going to have to close my folksy shop on account of the new arranged jewellery limits they have. I use a lot of charms, unfortunately. But maybe I'll branch out into something new instead :) Restriction is a powerful force for creativity! xx

  4. But the more facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc actually know that blogs like this exist, the better :) Have you seen ?
