Loving Driftwood.........

Hello Everyone:

Don't you just love the look of driftwood?  I wanted to share some of my driftwood collection with all of you.   Since moving to South Carolina, I have been combing the beaches nearby to start my collection.  Some of my favorite places to find it is on Tybee Island and Hilton Head.  When I am jogging, I am usually looking for spots where the high tide deposits my treasures.  I also see other people looking for it also so I do have some competition!

Recently I have seen many different uses for driftwood.  While shopping in Beaufort and Savannah, I have seen furniture, ornaments, candles, benches, lamps and frames.

I have just added my collection to a vintage plant holder.  By leaving this piece outside it has weathered to a rusty patina which I just love!!

Do you have anything in your home that is made from driftwood?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. You have a wonderful collection of driftwood and it looks so pretty in your plant stand! I only have one piece and I keep it outside in the front garden. I love the weathered look it got from being in the outside elements. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I love driftwood too! I like the way it gets all rounded and smooth like it has been carved and sanded. I love the little pits it gets - what a great texture! I also love beach glass. :)

  5. I found what I thought was driftwood at Marshall's {of all places, I don't live anywhere near the ocean!!}, but it turns out to be something from a tree. It is sort of white washed like driftwood.

    I love how you display your pieces, so pretty!

  11. I love that you collect driftwoods on your runs!! I have one whole bookshelf with "finds" from my runs. Haven't been able to run in two years (knee)... still miss it. Collect some for me! Your driftwood finds looks wonderful in that planter. blessings ~ tanna
