Beach Trash or Art Work – You Be The Judge

While walking I like searching the beach for shells, driftwood and other bits and pieces of trash that wash ashore. I keep a container in the storage closet for driftwood, bamboo, shells and other odds and ends that I attempt to turn into some sort of treasure.

It found a special home on one of the porch walls.IMG_22879.14.2015e 9.14.2015aThis is a piece of my grape vine that needed to be cut back so that became our screen door decoration. I found the nest in the yard and a empty eggshell as well to complete the door wreath. 9.14.2015bThese are just pieces of broken foam that I painted and hung on the porch kitchen window. 9.14.2015c These were given to me by Nellie, seven beautiful shells exactly the same just different sizes.IMG_2350 A piece of gnarly wood along with a thick board made up this shelf for our bedroom wall.IMG_2354IMG_23529.14.2015d
