Hello Charlotte,

Love driftwood, I paint on it.

I made a driftwood mobile last week, and now you've got me loving the idea of a driftwood tree. Maybe next year, this season is full of bustle already!


The bottom(horizontal) piece of wood made me think abt. the cross and Jesus Christ which is why we have Christmas in the first place. Thank you for that reminder-even unknowing- I have been worrying myself over how to get the boys everything on their list and whether my husband and I would even swap gifts this year-but those things are not important at all. You just never know when God may use you and so thank you for this today. My 3 boys will get a kick out of this and I just happen to have plaster of paris(will that work?) and a ton of limbs that we have ignored in the back yard-I will post picks soon of our interpretation...thanks again Charlotte!!!!

I see the cross, as angela said.

I also see John dancing!

Merry Christmas!

Hugs, Heidi


Great idea, I need to add one of these to my tree collection. Some beach combing is in order and I love to go this time of the year.

From one beachcomber to another...this makes my heart sing!

What a lovely, thoughtful gift. Hope you all have a Merry and Blessed Christmas! Natalie


What a great idea. My kids love it too. It's a great way to display our Jesse Tree ornaments. Just when I was wondering what to do with all the sticks my kids have collected!
