The most recent addition to the Rustic Wares store is our Firewood Succulent Planter. This weekend's fire was the first of the season - and it got me thinking.
All of the wood I am burning this year to keep the homestead warm is from trees I cut down, split, stacked and brought in myself. Zero help, lots of work - but there is something extremely satisfying knowing that each log I toss in to the wood burning stove was all handled and stacked by me.
A wood burning fire heats a home like to no other form. It is a all around heat that warms your skin and your bones. A sense of tradition and time is felt with each fire and keeps you grounded as one must respect the flames and appreciate the beauty in the fire itself.
