I know what you can get me for my next birthday…

TreeBedYes, I am fully aware that $15,000 is pretty pricey for a bed frame, but if just 15,000 of my currently 82,733 blog visitors chipped in just $1 each, I could sleep in this bed every night! Imagine that. (I didn’t account for tax and shipping charges, though—this thing must weigh quite a bit. Does anyone have a large truck?)

Of course, it might bring on recurring nightmares about the snake-and-doomed-robin-chick episode of last week that I posted here. The scene atop the bed looks eerily familiar. You see, I have this visual penchant for trees, leaves, nests, feathers, birds and eggs. Oh, and sleep. That’s a good thing, too. So, this present would combine four of those faves of mine in one simple gift. And you don’t even have to wrap it! Oh, and I’ll provide the linens, so no need to fret about including those.

Then again, $15,000 would buy at least three of the pricier prime Nikon lenses that I don’t already have but certainly still lust after. (Which ones, you ask? Oh, say the 600mm f/4D IF-ED II, the 200-400mm VR f/4 AF-S, and maybe the 200mm Micro f/4D IF-ED, in case you were curious or just taking notes.)

Tree bed, Nikon lenses. Tree bed, Nikon lenses. Hmmmm. What do you think? Talk amongst yourselves. I’m sure I’ll love whatever you get me.

Take a look at artist Shawn Lovell’s other metal creations on her website here. Beautiful work!

Stop that lens talk…you are making me drool.

Is that bad? Here I am surfing the net and drooling over your lens selection rather than…nah, it ain’t bad. It’s good. And I really wonder about that 200 micro…

Hi, Cindy, I’m visiting your blog and I’m liking it quite a lot already. 🙂

That bed seems easy to do. Go to a forest, get four trees with long branches, put a bed in the middle and voilá. You just saved yourself $15000 to buy those Nikon lenses. 🙂

I’m liking your idea, C.A.! 🙂 I even have a (sad to report) empty bird nest (albeit a tiny one) to put at the top.
