Haliburton Forest Store

I’ve just returned from 11 wonderful days up at my family cottage near Haliburton. The first picture you see is a view of the lake. It was a great break, wonderful weather and the lake was as warm as a bathtub.

While there, I checked out The Forest Store. The Forest Store sells beautiful items handcrafted at the Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve. (sidenote: If you are ever in the area you should check out the Reserve – tons to do in all seasons.)

I just loved the all the wood items and the creative ways pieces of wood had been shaped and repurposed. Here are a few yummies I wanted to share with you …

Burled wood bowl

a wolf puzzle

bread boards

candle holders carved into birch tree logs

another stunning bowl

my sidekick really liked this chair

I resisted buying about ten items I had my eye on and came away with these … I had originally envisioned giving the smaller candle holders away as hostess gifts but am considering keeping them for myself!

If you are ever Haliburton you should totally check The Forest Store out.
