Branch Inspirations • Series Overview

I have shared with you many different ways to incorporate the branch theme in decor.  I am combining links to all of those posts into one resource below for you to easily link to and use for future reference. I am also starting a page on the blog that lists the themes I have delved into. You can access this by clicking on the Themes link in the top navigation area. I will be adding other themes but Branches has been my most extensive to date. I hope it gives you wonderful inspirations for your future projects. Send photos!
