|Extra-large Driftwood Heart by Karen Miller|
Definition: drift·wood (drftwd) n. Wood floating in or washed up by a body of water.
Some actually have the nerve to say that driftwood is a form of "marine debris or tidewrack". I guess that I've got a thing for marine debris! LOL! I have fond memories of collecting driftwood with my mother along the shores of the Northern California beaches as a young child. She had a thing for debris too ;o)
We have various pieces of driftwood out on the back deck which we are letting the rain clean and sun bleach. When they are properly cleaned we'll find just the right use for them. Since living at the beach we are much more selective about the pieces we bring home. David has a piece which looks like a wooden club that it currently being cleansed outside…I'm not sure what his fascination is with the "club" look (getting in touch with his inner caveman, perhaps?) but he loves it, so we'll find a place for it.
