Driftwood Sailboat


I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!  We sure did here in WK. My youngest daughter and a friend came for a weekend visit, we had a wonderful time!
 It’s always great to be around family during the holidays.  
  
  Driftwood has been one of my favorite things,   I especially like the patina of the wood and the wonder of all the places it has been.    A few weeks ago, I ran across this blog called stories of a 2 z.  She had made the cutest sailboat out of drift wood.  She really did inspire me to get the piece of driftwood, that I had found, and make a sailboat this afternoon.

Here is the exact spot that she came from.

It’s almost impossible to pick up a piece of wood around Albert (golden retriever).   He retrieves  sticks, wood, balls, whatever, you throw in the lake.   See where he bit the end off?  I think it only adds character plus a cute story. :o)

After floating around the lake, I think her final resting place will be here. :-)

Hi Mary! I am adding you as my newest follower! You had me asap w/that sailboat. LOL! That is so cute I am gonna want to do one now too! I also paint, not nearly as wonderful as you but I know exactly what you mean. It only happens when I really want to and what I want to paint. I have been wanting to do some sailboats on pillows and you have inspired me. Thanks!

I fell in love with your boat. I think it is quite classy. I am making Christmas decorations for a tree we are donating to a local festival of trees this year, and we made 11 of these because of your inspiration. I am going to write a post about it in the next couple of weeks, and I will definitely give you credit for our inspiration. I love how our boats turned out, and I appreciate your sharing this idea with us. THANK YOU!!! http://www.continuallycreative.com
