It is that time of year once again where the wind picks up and you will see an influx of one of these guys rolling, rolling, rolling down the road alongside you while driving. Or maybe they're piled up in your front or backyard or the parking lot of your job. Especially this time of year as the winds pick up, tumbleweeds are everywhere!

But here is one thing that you may not be aware of:

According to Texas Monthly, it is actually trendy to decorate your home with tumbleweeds. Excuse me? After a good windy day, I can accumulate 4 or 5 of these things by my back gate but never have I thought to bring a couple in to hang from the ceiling.


I mean, I can't tell you how many times I've told one of my boys, 'go throw those in the dumpster, they're a nuisance.' To Texans they may be because we are so used to them but to many, not so much.

Truly one man's trash is another man's treasure. People from all over the country are using them as part of their decor and even putting lights on them to light up a room. Isn't that dangerous? They're so dry. Clearly I do not know the secret to preserving them.

But one thing I should be doing, we all should, is gathering tumbleweeds to SELL. I may be starting a business soon, check out how much one of these babies goes for on Etsy!
