Wooden stick collection




Sometimes you see a child carrying around on a bunch of wooden sticks and the parents desperately trying to convince their child to leave the sticks outside. I remember the feeling, not wanting to leave the things you had picked up, behind, all alone in the forrest.

Love these pictures and the branches of course! Heads and noses and eyes and a lot of movement.

It's so funny that you said that as I have little piles of sticks and rocks and acorn caps stacked outside my back door. I've convinced the kids that if they are kept in piles they will not get lost or lonely :)

It's true, I am desperately in love with this collection.

Your collection is lovely--the driftwood-esque ones in the first photo are my particular favorite.

And I know what you mean about not being able to leave your finds outside...I hauled a sap-covered pinecone as big as my head home on the bus yesterday, and though I got some strange looks, I just couldn't abandon that fantastic natural treasure. :)

Es verdad, los objetos encontrados en el campo cuando eres un niño son pequeños tesoros de los que no quieres desprenderte.
