A Rocking Chair for Grandma

I'm in Driftwood heaven



We are in Bathurst New Brunswick,
The driftwood province.

We happened onto a driveway filed with driftwood


Not your average driftwood but real animals and tables and such.

Well yesterday we were given a bucket of seaglass when a lady we meet Annie found out we were beachcombers.  She said, "you should take this and use it if you can." It weights about 7 pounds and so I thought why not, I'll use it.  

So today I traded some seaglass for this stone souvenir.


You did hear the story about trading the paper clip for a million dollars? I wonder what I'll end up with in BC, stay tuned, lol.

Then we found more driftwood





This is my mosaic (not all in one) but just as fun. I'm running on over to see Judith at Lavendar Cottage where she hosts Mosaic Monday's -  come along.


Until next time I get internet,
Cindy

Very pretty driftwood art! The octopus looks so lifelike, and the chair looks comfortable.

Wow, what a collection of driftwood!
I love that you participated in Mosaic Monday Cndy but I do ask that you include a template mosaic of some sort if participating again please.

Oh I love all the driftwood and wonderful things made from it. Well, except for the giant spiders, which are kind of cool and I guess they won't scare me. :-) How fun! And a whole bucket of sea glass? Lucky you!

Those octopuses are wonderful aren't they!!! I think that guy had pretty much the worlds supply of driftwood and it sounds as though you have managed to pick up the worlds supply of sea glass!! xx
