I've always wanted a log cabin in the mountains, but that isn't going to happen. We are happily settled in a cottage on the edge of a town with a view of the mountains. I still get the urge for a little touch of that log cabin of my dreams, however.
We've had this twig table for a few years, but it has always resided on our screened-in porch. I decided to switch things around and use it for a coffee table in the living room this winter.
With a few pine cones, it is a reminder of the mountain log cabin of my youth. I was raised on the plains of southeast Colorado where it gets quite hot in the summer. Before air conditioning was common, people who were able went to the mountains for a couple of weeks in the summer to cool off. I often accompanied my Grandmother on her yearly trip in August to Cuchera, Colorado. What fond memories I have of those trips to that log cabin.
There is always a bright side -- if I lived in a log cabin in the mountains, there would be snow on the ground by now; and I wouldn't be able to enjoy the flowers that are still blooming in our lower-elevation garden!
