Last Saturday I took my friend Tracy of Ms. Bake-it to my secret beach to do a little driftwood hunting. Tracy is going to make a driftwood mirror for her home and she needed to start collecting because it's going to be a BIG one.
Now according to the tide charts it was supposed to be a low tide, but the forces that be, like rain the day before and a little wind we've been having, interfered with the tide and the water level was so high we couldn't walk out to where I always find a nice selection of wood.

We walked around to the other side of the island and Tracy did manage to find a few nice pieces. We also ran across this guy…

Monday morning I woke up with a ton of brick's on my chest. Yep, the first chest cold of the year hit me hard and I've spent the last three days in bed. This morning there are signs that I'm starting to feel a bit better, so I had to jump on the computer to tell you about the GIVEAWAY Tracy is having on her blog.
Tracy is giving away a $40 gift code to my Etsy Shop and another $40 gift code to our friend Becky of Junk to Joy's Etsy Shop.
How cool is that? Like I always say, "Blog Friends are the Best!" This giveaway runs through May 25th 12:00am.
