Stumped for a new prop idea?

Stumped

Did you ever hear yourself say, "Oh doggone it, I should have thought of that," when you saw someone's cool Pinterest idea or a photographer's setup or props that you already had but didn't see it in that light?  I think when you have been exposed to that enough times, if you are paying attention to that little voice in your head and making note of it, you will begin to see ideas, crafts, and props all around you.  Recently my neighbor had to have a huge oak tree cut down at the end of her driveway due to a tree disease.  I snatched a two foot chunk of a thick branch, added some wheels and a top and made a unique little rolling stool or end table.  So when they had to have the other huge oak tree cut down, my brain started seeing more rolling stools at first.  Then it moved on to bigger things, like a huge chunk of the trunk for posing everything from babies to families.  Our friendly neighborhood tree cutter not only cut me a nice pretty chunk, but after taking down a section of privacy fence, we got him to take his back hoe and haul it off to our back yard (it was over 500lbs).  Yeah!!!  I was so excited.  It looks like it grew there naturally and had to be cut down.  I can envision the grandkids playing king of the mountain and tea parties on it now.  Stay tuned for some little people pictures on the stump.
