A home was needed for our summer nature things, so we came up with this nature table tucked along one wall near the patio door. I read somwehere once that contentment can be found when you 'shop your home' instead of heading out to purchase that certain piece of furniture or whatever IT is you suddenly decide you need to make your home just right. This happens to be some tv trays that were being stored in the basement. Paired with a pretty patterned oilcloth from the linen cupboard, it makes a nice little spot for investigation to take place.
I've always loved the idea of a nature table and still have bigger dreams for 'someday.'
(You know how that goes...)
