  2. A great buoy find and such a perfect piece of beach art in itself when hung as so.
    You really found some treasures and when they are all up styled in your fashion they will add all the right kind of rightness to there design. Can't wait to see how you paint and use that buffet. The oil painting is a country find in itself.

    Thank you for taking the time to visit my place, your comments always place a smile on my creative days ahead of me.
    See you soon.

  5. My favorite of your finds is the pair of urns. I would paint them black and set them outside my front door........that is if I owned them. I can not wait to see what you do with them.

    1. Thank you Susan-We must think a like because I did paint them black and they are on either side of my garage door for now. My driveway looks so much better. I will probably move them knowing me, but for now they look good their!

    1. Thank you Martina-They are now black and in front of my garage! If it had been real rust (made of resin) I would have loved to keep them that way!
