A Little Bark Won't Bite

If you live in New England you're no stranger to the beauty of the Birch tree, which is famous for its flaky and silvery-white bark.  Below are some creative ways to use fallen birch in your home.

  1. I have birch candles at home...and fallen logs that I prop against a wall...it's very organic and simple. I love birch!!!! Birch also makes a great canvas for charcoal sketches or love notes and then put into a pretty frame.
