I started making nature tables... ohhhh about 16 years ago or so. My sister was just beginning homeschooling with my nephew and we were all learning about Waldorf for the first time. I was instantly charmed with it all, but have an extra special place for nature tables.
The other day I found this lovely tree at an antique store. Next year we are moving the nature table to a small shelf for space and choking hazard reasons. This tree is perfect. The boughs come off in winter (see our pretty winter one above), flowers go in the branches in spring, the boughs will go back on for summer, and I will paint one side in reds, oranges, and golds for Autumn. My sister asked if I would post about this one. I was going to wait but this is the perfect opportunity to tell you about a wonderful new blog devoted entirely to Nature tables....
About a month ago I received an email from a lovely woman named Rachel who was starting a beautiful blog devoted entirely to nature tables. If you have a lovely (clear, and in focus) picture you would like to share of your nature table please consider sending it to her. Or if you just want to admire other pretty tables here is the link http://naturetablecollection.blogspot.com/
Have a blessed weekend and Shine on.
