This summer we spent most of the month of August at the beach on Whidbey Island. I love being up there. I love the smell of the salt water and the peacefulness of the beach. We lose that at the end of every summer when we are relegated to quick weekend trips. I came up with a strategy this summer while we were there, I'd bring part of summer home with us for the winter.
I filled buckets with drift wood pieces and drug them home in the back of the car. Then last week I hot-glued the dry pieces of drift wood to a cardboard wreath form and attached a giant bow from The Land of Nod.
