Summer in pieces
Our hallway table during the summer months becomes a table of curiosities. These are the little pieces we bring back home with us from various places we visit. Some of those places are where we have vacationed and others are more local, such as the back yard. There are items that come and go from the table. They are often found in other corners of the house the result of little hands with grand plans. And other things come to be here as a result of recent discoveries, such as a Monarch butterfly wing. As the summer comes to a close I will miss this table the most. There is something rather pleasing about a nature table in a home. Reminders of places seen, felt, and experienced. Pieces of us set out as vignettes of our story.
