I haven't yet shown you the souvenir that came home with me from the Salmon River. It's more unique and um, natural, than most souvenirs :).
One of the most beautiful pieces of driftwood I've ever seen. We were sitting around one more waiting for our guides to pack up (yeah, it was a tough trip ;), when I spied this beauty under a nearby tree. You guys, it's so smooth. And has so much character! I couldn't leave it behind. So it spent the next three days securely traveling down river in my day dry bag :).
I feel like every line and swirl tells a story about this wood's journey down the mighty rushing river.
So, what does one DO with a small-ish piece of driftwood? Friends, I have NO IDEA! I've been scouring my favorite online sources and have discovered some amazing driftwood pieces.
I could turn it into a sign of sort. Hello on the back porch?
I could create a beautiful tablescape.
I could turn it into an interesting and functional piece of wall art. Although, it would kill me to paint it right now, so this might be an option down the road.
I could hang it on the wall. Although, it's much smaller than the ones pictured here, so maybe incorporate it into our gallery wall?
What do you guys think? What would you do with a piece of driftwood? And, have you ever come home with a more "natural souvenir"? Do you have driftwood anywhere in your home?
