Framed Rome

White frame in a white window. Something about Rome and a photo of antique spoons.

It started with the wooden decoration. It’s a part of a tree branch that is curved in decorative way by nature, free of bark and polished without any lacquers. As it stands on the bends it creates a mood of a log in the forest.

I coated it with sumi ink, did rope ties with chain, ring and ribbon. Chain hangs in a nice way that indicated that this is a jewelry stand. The log creates sort of a corner where I lay pendants.


I tried to find same branches myself. Indeed I did not have to cut or break anything in the woods. I found five of them but they seem to be plain. I cleaned them of sand. They required only one layer of ink. Most of them had extremely nice natural color.

They can be used to lay jewelry on top of the log. Altogether they serve as a symbol of fireplace.

It is very common to find remnants of animals. Their bone pieces look as a part of culture for anatomy theater. I bought a part of a dinosaur spine. As always, sumi ink solves sanitary problem, and in natural color the bone looked disgusting.

Bottle family

Gather several bottles of different sizes. They must be shut with cork and have a traditional shape. Also try to find bottles of dark glass.

Have a selection of herbs. Here are mustard seeds, viola flowers, calendula. Put a couple of dry flowers at the bottom of the bottle first. Mix other herbs and fill the bottle with it. The one with the laundry pin is with rosemary only.


Glue the cork carefully and add heart. That might be done with acrylic paint on stencil. Use household glue.

This is a great homewarming.
