Tale of the Walnut Tree

One day a large storm took down the old walnut tree. Neighbors knew it well. They loved its gnarled appearance.

 

Later the county removed most of the tree but left the stump to decay naturally.

The photo above was pinned to the stump so all could say Goodbye.

Lots of time has passed  and recently neighborhood children built a fort with sticks, digging out the under growth and creating an entrance.

A neighborhood artist left an offering inside. I hope they find the leaf.

My leaf pins can also be found on Etsy HERE.

Sold! Pins from Etsy going out the door

Thanks J for the purchase.

These pins are on their way to a friend and artist who is a regular collector of my work. I included some felt scraps and silk scraps in her package.  I will be adding handmade felt and silk paper to the shop soon.

I changed the name of the Jewelry section in Etsy to Quirky Pins/Brooches. They are quirky because they show the personality of my hand.

To select from pins that are left in my Quirky Pins section, go to Esty HERE
