this is something i've had on my list of things to make for a while.. inspired by a few blogs & combining my love of driftwood and boats. i still have a good supply of driftwood found on the beaches around here after winter storms. a combined effort with steve doing a great job boat building, drilling and fitting masts. me the sailmaker and boat rigger, bringing back memories of when i did rig sailing boats many moons ago.
so this is the fleet, simple and rustic. they're not going to win any races, no high tech gadgets here. built for fun and happy cruising.
have a happy week!
You know how much I love these!!! They turned out perfect and I adore the little flags on the one boat. Perfect.xoxoReplyDelete
So very lovely and I adore the way you have made a fleet out of them. The whole vignette is beautifully styled.ReplyDelete
