Thanks a lot Mirjana!

I'll do the one with the Rosemary wash. It seems simple, easy and I have plenty of rosemary in my garden.

I'm also thinking about planting the bush with 12 herbs...

MOST encompassing sheter for me.

This is a sample of what I've done. I very much enjoy creating these and making the furniture to put inside them. I've even been approached by adults asking for meditation get aways and 'home office' ideas. I can get consumed with it LOL

I've drawn up some plans for a hobbit house for children :) Looking forward to putting one together some day.

Thank you again for more inspiration =0)

This is beautiful, but these people do not know much about wood. I doubt they did some high pressure anti-bugs treatment. Within a few years they are going to have serious problems with worms, and all other bugs inside the wood.

Make sure you take Alija's comment above into consideration when you build your hobbit house, lol
