Weathered wood.

I like the look of weathered wood. This is wood that has been out in the weather for a long time. It’s been through scorching heat waves, torrential rains, hail storms, and whatever else the weather throws at it. The wood can be old fence posts or slats, or barn siding, building pallets, or driftwood. It’s all weathered the weather.

There’s a certain look to weathered wood. It has turned a silvery gray, for the most part. It has aged, and aged well.

Lots of wooden projects can be done with this wood. People make all sorts of things, from whimsical photo frames, to beautiful furniture. I have a few pieces, myself. Our neighbor did a lot of wood projects. We have a couple of outdoor benches, and a nightstand table. I really like the nightstand table. It has a shelf underneath, and a table top. There is also a wood framed mirror that tilts. Thank you DB! 🙂

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – SPRING/WOOD

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Spring – Wood

***

This time we were to find photos of signs of Spring, and also anything wood. Here we have tree branches, trunks, and bark. We also have Spring buds on the tree, and pretty blossoms. Spring also means those pretty yellow flowers known as dandelions. Then we have racks of seed packets. I love looking at all the varieties of seeds for fruits, vegetables, and flowers that can be planted in the spring. Wish I had a green thumb and could grow some. I try. 🙂

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS and #JusJoJan Jan. 28/17

***

Today is a combo of the Just Jot It January & Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenges. The topic to use is the word ‘wood or would’.

***

Would you believe I like to do wood burning? I like to make designs in wood, with the hot styling tool, whatever you call it. It has different tips to use for different designs you might want to try, even for writing words. I got my first wood burning set when I was a kid. I guess, back then, it wasn’t considered a dangerous toy for a kid to mess around with. I don’t remember getting burned by it. I have done some projects fairly recently, too. I do like the smell of the burning wood.

We don’t have a fireplace, so we don’t burn any wood that way. We have burned mesquite wood on the grill, though. That smells really good, too, and gives the food a nice flavor.

Here’s a song I remember hearing many times in the past. It’s about a wooden heart. This one is from 1961, sung by Joe Dowell. It was a cover of the song done by Elvis Presley, in 1960. I think this is the one I remember hearing the most. 🙂
