Our Friendly Whales & Driftwood Sailboats are Finally Here

Whale Cut-outs and a Sailboat Give-a-way.

Our Whale Cut-Outs and Driftwood Sailboats are finally up for sale on the website.  It was touch and go there for awhile, because we sold out of the original batch before we could get them listed on the website.  Walter managed to make more for me, for which I am very grateful.
This batch is great....the driftwood is spectacular!
The driftwood comes from our local Long Island Beaches or from Virginia's Chesapeake Bay Shores.  I found fabulous Red Cedar Driftwood this time....woo woo!!

We also made Colorful Driftwood Sailboats 
The sails are made of vintage fabric and we used the same fabulous driftwood

To kick off our new line....
we are giving away this Sailboat
This Catboat Rig  measures 28" high x 21" long on a piece 
Long Island driftwood with vintage canvas sail
 Just become a follower 
and leave a comment for two chances to win.

You have until Midnight Sunday November 27th
We will pick a winner and post it on Monday the 28th

Good luck to everyone - I'll look forward to hearing from you

Long Island Whale Watching

Our pod of friendly whales are almost here
 We have been busy working on our newly designed whales.  
They are made of antique barn wood with a nice thickness and are quite solid. 

We have several sizes with each having different patinas....
waxed, oiled or completely natural, making them similar.....yet each one an individual.
This particular variety is mounted on on a metal rod and attached to a piece of driftwood.  
We will have many other varieties, including hanging, shelf sitters,
painted etc. along with several different styles and shapes.
Many of them have been cut out so as to use a knot in the wood as the whales eye.....

 We are working diligently to get them up for sale on the website
by the beginning of next week...November 7th or 8th. 
We will have other surprises also

They are swimming our fast as they can!
