A Coastal Sign

I'm always picking up things from the shore, like this pretty sea urchin, that I can combine with other recycled objects.




I pick up wooden letters when I see them on sale, especially the ones that spell out my favorite place. In it's former life, this curved distressed board was part of a church steeple.


I gave the wooden letters and sea urchins a coating of liquid gold leaf.


I love how the board is weathered with just the right amount of chippy paint and empty nail holes that make me sigh.



I like the way it looks on the wall.



Especially, right above my tin lobster that I painted blue.

Lili the sign looks great and goes so well with the funky lobster.

Hope that you are having a great weekend, it is sunny today but cold.

Not as cold as there I should imagine.

How creative you are. When I visit your blog I spend time looking at that gorgeous seascape in your title - I wish I was there!

Kat, It's in an upstairs spot that I get to look at each day.

JoAnn, I have a small collection of blue lobsters too, hope some day to catch a real one that we would donate to local research place here to keep alive.

Leeann, Yes! I LOVE my funky blue lobster. We have sunny and cold here today too, but just a couple days ago it was 54 F. -- don't know what that translates to in C. though.

Jennyfreckles, I took my title photo at the Schoodic Region of Acadia National Park, just 12 miles from here, during a day with gale force winds.
