Great Weekend

Over the river and thru the woods, but not to grandmothers house we went.   We traveled over the coast range to my daughters house on the coast for Thanksgiving.  Thank you everyone for your good wishes for the holiday.  We had a great 4 day weekend.  Ate lots, drank lots, sang carols at the local Christmas tree lighting, walked, shopped a couple of bazaars and made recycled ornaments to hang on the city Christmas tree.  The kids went crabbing on Tillamook Bay and caught one single crab they named Buford.  He got a nice hot spa treatment and a buttery massage. 

Summit, on the Oregon Coast Range.    

I did have some time to create a driftwood wreath.  I had collected some small pieces of driftwood earlier in the summer so they were well dried out.  I first laid out a circle of larger pieces then using my glue gun just kept adding smaller pieces around the shape, fitting pieces together like a jigsaw puzzle.  It was hard to know when to stop.  But I wanted a non seasonal wreath that could be hung on a wall.  Seasonal trim can be added.  It's probably about 16 inches across. 
Leah, over at Creative Every Day has had a challenge "Creative Every Day" this month.  This is the final day,  I was only able to post a couple times but enjoyed seeing what everyone else posted. 

Hope you all had a very enjoyable Thanksgiving Holiday.  Now to the shopping.

Thanks for visiting.

What a great ildea for a wreath. I am currently wreath less and feel rebellious towards the evergreen variety that is 30 or 40 dollars. I have a lot of driftwood and maybe adding some shells and stuff ... Oh the wheels they are turning. And I had to laugh out loud at the poor crab's spa treatment !

Love the wreath! It would look wonderful with glittered seashells! I wish I could find small driftwood pieces, I've seen so many very cool projects using them...
