Drawing Challenge :: Driftwood & Wisdom

driftwood cosies

Hi All!

I ve been a bit sporadic with blogging these last 3 weeks I had some health issues (as if I havent had enough already this year!)
No panic its nothing major it seems that after all this time my wisdom teeth felt they needed to make themselves known and therefore have been carrying on like pork chops (my favorite Australian colloquialism!) and have been removed for their bad behavior.

I will be in and out of blog life for the next few days while I recuperate.

I found these driftwood images in my blog from past posts that I thought were just right for the challenge. These assemblages were made when I was home in Tasmania. I find a lot of things on my beach walks that I collect and take home and then assemble in groupings very Rosalie inspired stuff. One day I knitted cosies for my driftwood sticks I love them the mix of wool and smooth white wood.

I hope you and your families are well.

Helen x

i like your collections here very much. there's a certain cleanness and crispness about putting old and worn things together in a very sober backgrounds. driftwood works perfectly for the occasion.

Hi, Helen, I'm following some of your boards on Pinterest!
if you see my Pinterest says:
"Seeker of useless things"
I enjoy walking, looking at the ground. I read that in your walks on the beach in Tasmania you found a lot of things,
where I lived was not near the beach, but I liked walking the train tracks, because it's amazing the things you can find.:)))
I send you greetings and good weekend

Hi, Helen. I love collecting stuff at the beach, too (only reason I go, really). Really liked your cozies--yarn bombing on a miniature scale! Also enjoyed seeing your holiday home.
best, nadia

The cosies are a nice human contribution to what the great force of nature has provided. It is a great combination, indeed. I've lived by the Pacific Ocean pretty much all of my life and really have not been beachcombing much. I don't know why this is. I have more pinecones and branches with lichen on them, and rocks than I do things found at the beach. Interesting thought. Anyway, I like your collections a lot. Be well soon, art friend! *smiles* Norma
