Me and My Work

Some of you may have seen a few of these pictures before. I have a work blog www.meandmyhousefurniture.blogspot.com
so some of this might be overlap, but now I have to tell you the rest of the story.

This tree might not look so big and heavy, but let me tell you what. Its big and heavy.
The Bad Guys are chopping down the forest behind Randy's parents' house and so I went back there on an off day and picked out a few beauts.
This was a nice silvery color. It had a REALLY long trunk, though, so I had to go back to the house and get a big saw to cut it in half. Then my wonderful husband came and drug it through the remaining forest and helped me get it over the fence.
That night we wrapped it in a quilt, tied it to the back of a truck and drove it up to work.

I was working by myself and had to figure out how to get the thing upright, suspended and secure without breaking anything or seriously injuring myself.
Lets just say that the bar at the end of the shopping center was having a busy night and so I had an audience. It was neither graceful not attractive, but I did it. And now its staying there for a while.
I ran up to work today to do a few things and The Wolf hung out on a bed with a furniture model.
(lucky Wolf).
Here we are outside the store. I did the windows a long time ago and the old book pages (cut into scallops and taped to the windows) help with the glare. I still like it.
Here is another little tree (I tied little silk bouquets to the branches). After the ginormous petrified redwood (it will get bigger every time I tell the story), this minuscule branch was like a shishkabob stick (I have no idea how to spell that)
I usually go up to work after 8. After the Wolf goes down. Its nice to have the place to myself and be able to destroy half the store without apologizing. It always comes together in the end.


  1. That's some mighty fine tree-age if I do say so! Man Wolfgang is a lucky little guy hangin' with the ladies :P What a fun job :) VERY COOL!

    Love you


  2. Ooooooh! I definitely want dead trees in my house now.
