Monkeys in a Tree


April 17, 2013 by Terumi

This will probably be the last time my guys climb in a tree. They looked so cute just climbing and the tree wasn’t that high.

Then………….CRACK!  (People, as much as we try to protect them, sometimes trees are not our friends.)  Thankfully it was a low tree and the ground wasn’t too hard.  But I nearly had a heart attack. So here are three fabulous made-from-tree products I’m considering purchasing today:

These gorgeous paper flowers from West Elm:

While I’d love to buy all three, the sunnies are number one on my list as maybe they will help me look on the bright side of horrible things.  From now on, the trees in the backyard are only for picnicking under and perhaps we’ll read the Giving Tree the next time we sit under this one.

    Definitely glad that it was a “low” tree branch!
