Reclaimed Wood

If you've read a decorating magazine in the last year you're bound to have seen at least one article on using reclaimed wood for a project.

This week, I bought a bird house made from reclaimed wood.

A friend's husband gathered some scraps of wood around his home and built this for me. Some is from an old barn, and some came from a fence. I don't think he considered the trend of using old wood for a new project. He was being thrifty and creative.

Who knows? Maybe the trend of reclaiming old wood came from a practical and thrifty man, like Woody. Yes, that's his real name. Woody Sparks.

Have a great day!
