My sister in law found the most amazing piece of driftwood. And, she gave it to me! When I received it I thought it was such a great piece that I felt like it was an important task to come up with just the right thing to do with it. I mean really it is a one of a kind piece so I didn’t want to just paint anything on it.
It has sat propped beside where I work for the better part of two months now. Sometimes I would take time out just to stare at it and wonder about what I should do with it. Sometimes I would google beach sayings or things like that to give me inspiration. At some point the phrase “oh, to be by the sea” started making circles in my head whenever I looked at the driftwood. I have no idea where the words came from. I even tried to google it to see if that told me anything. It didn’t. I must have made them up.
Finally, this weekend I decided that “oh, to be by the sea” was exactly what should be written on it only I needed to find a worthy font. I started to scour the internet and after much searching I found it and I think it is perfect. I have fallen in love with this piece. I don’t think the picture does it justice. It is actually over two feet long.
