New Print: Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice
In honor of the extra leap day this February, I decided to illustrate this quote by Henry Ford and have added it to my Etsy shop (here). “Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice” is a sentiment I like for a number of reasons. It’s partly for the idea that things like doing chores and walking instead of driving can not only be enjoyable but also warm you up on cold winter days. And I also dream of the day when I can live in a house with its own wood-burning fireplace, where I plan to spend every winter night watching orange flames dance and smelling the delicious aroma of wood smoke. Although lately it can feel like spring is just around the corner here in the north of England, there are some chilly days yet, and thinking about warm and cozy fires always makes me happy. I hope it’s not too cold where you are, but if it is, go chop up some wood and have yourself a fire!
