Treasured Nautical Signs

A walk on the beach after Hurricane Sandy
yielded a treasure of cast-offs.

This piece is one of my favorites... the rusty nails and a random piece of weathered brass are original bling to this driftwood.

Another driftwood oak floor board was found painted on both sides... makes me wonder where it came from?

How far did this piece drift?

Hurricane Sandy was catastrophic to our local communities here on Long Island.

There is a certain sadness in finding pieces that may have been part of someone else's loving home or boat.

Adding a word to each piece created original driftwood signs
reminding us of summer. Memories, the lure of the beach, and the importance of re-purposing something that was sure to become trash.

Another painted shingle in beautiful "Martha Green" got my house number and became a beautiful plaque.

One man's treasure is another man's up-cycled treasure!
