Drift away...

Drift wood is something that has always amazed me. The way in which wood tumbling along rocks, rough shores, and pounding waves comes out so soft, aged and beautiful. On my latest trip up the coast I collected as much as I could find. Not knowing exactly at the time what would come of it all. When I arrived home I came up with the idea to make drift wood crosses.
I feel as though they came out slightly rustic, very chic and the perfect piece to mix into a mantle decor, pottery collection or even a garden piece.

The Fleur of my labor

Took my usual trip down to Ocean Beach to re-vamp my space at Vignettes. I have so much fun seeing it all come together.
Last week I posted about the porcelain roses I found for my bottles. Here they are all finished, check them out at my space.

It is truly a sight to see something that was going to be one mans trash or simple decoration piece become its own singular treasure. 

In the meantime I have some really incredible hand collected drift wood crosses in the works. Pictures of that coming tomorrow!

El Camino Del Norte

My husband, Mac and I took nice week roadtrip to northern California. Aside from coming down with a cold at the beginning I had the best time finding amazing goodies for all of you!
Here is the mass of great things I retrieved.

This is a picture of my space in Newport Antique center (OB)

This is my vignettes space after my trip. The cubbies, and pink iron bed have already gone to a good home!
I found some real hidden treasures up north and an insane new source for everything from large structural pieces to little glass floats. Best of all we got to visit my sister-in-law who we don't get to see nearly enough.

Wiggle room.

I've recently moved my space in Vignettes from the window to a larger space.

Seeing all of my new stuff together is so exciting. Within days a lot of it was gone, but I just took a great trip up the coast and tomorrow I will post all of my goodies from that adventure.
New bottle collection, intricate birdhouses, detailed lamps!
