Copy Cat Challenge

Debbie is holding a 
Copy Cat Challenge

over at

And I'm in!

I have always loved this sign that

made for her kitchen....

and a while back I copied it for my kitchen...
(and when I figure out how she did that ceiling I might just copy that too!)

I would never post it because it wasn't my work...but I did copy it!

And that didn't stop me from proudly displaying it in my kitchen....

I'm really happy that Debbie is having
this Copy Cat Challenge so I can
finally come clean...

Donna, I confess... I copied your sign!!!
and someday maybe my photos will be as good too! 

I love it, especially all the rusty hardware you've got going on yours... 

so I might have to go back and 
add some more to mine!
Thanks for all the great inspiration Donna!

And thanks so much for the

Driftwood Photo Holder

I found this beautiful piece of large
driftwood on the beach. 

One of my favorite things to do is
to treasure hunt on the beach.

It stands almost 2 feet tall.

The color and the texture of this wood was awesome! To preserve the color, I gave it a coat of Polycrylic.

I screwed on a clip...

and a stand for sturdiness...

This driftwood is an awesome 
sculptural piece...

A starfish adds to the nautical theme...

And an 8x10 photo of my baby 
completes the look.

I've never met a piece of driftwood 
I didn't love!

It was driftwood and it had a lot of
