Good Thoughts Branch Bowls

I just wanted to share a project that is simple to make and can add a touch of beauty and good thoughts in your home.

We cut some branches into slices and then using single alphabet stamps - stamped out the words using ink pads. I crocheted the little basket using wool yarn - this yarn in the picture is from Peace Fleece.

We have it on our kitchen table right now - add words at your leisure - such as hope, faith, gratitude, etc..

Speaking of gratitude, my father called this morning to wish me a happy birthday and one thing he said has stayed with me - "Be thankful that you have had forty years." You know, practicing gratitude truly leads to contentment. I am thankful - so thankful for all the blessings over these forty years.


  1. Happy blessed birthday Tonya, and many more!

  2. Tonya,

    Happy Birthday!!! I will be 40 this year....this time last year I would have never said I was excited about turning 40 but guess what I am...God has changed my heart.

    Wishing you many Blessings on your Forthy Birthday!!!


  3. Happy Birthday! Hope your day was filled with blessings just like your bowl is. I love that idea!

  4. This is an awesome idea. I am creating an inspiration section to my blog this week, and this is going on it :)
