Things That Gather in my Studio


I love my studio
and within that studio I keep things that inspire me
woody gifts from the sea
in little piles on windowsills


sticking out of bowls alongside feathers


or standing tall in flowerpots 


Some show evidence of high density critter living
or road maps well travelled


Funny how they avoided the rusty bit too.

  1. They're lovely. There's something about driftwood that you don't get elsewhere. (Even when it's been badly eaten!)

    1. And what do you think that something is? Don't know anyone who isn't drawn to it.

  2. Oh, I miss beachcombing in Nova Scotia! Such rich pickings. One of these days we will holiday there again. Soon, I hope, before I get too old to bend over to pick things up 😉

  5. As one who never comes in from outside without a few treasures in my pockets, I love your collection. The critter highway wood is wonderful.
