Black Crow Cottage…

Black Crow Cottage…

I live on Vancouver Island, BC in a small cottage by the sea called Black Crow Cottage.  My husband ‘MiLorne’ and I built our small cottage a few years back. After our daughters grew up and away we embraced the idea of minimizing.

So we sold the big house and gave away or sold a lot of the items that are necessary to fill all the rooms of a big house and then we built small, very small by most folks standards, a mere 1000 square feet. It has been challenging in some ways and liberating in others to live on a smaller footprint.

Living by the sea allows me the luxury of kayaking, beach combing and hiking the nearby trails.  I enjoy beach rambles and collecting driftwood, stones, shells, beach glass and curios.   With the West Coast as my inspiration I then repurpose these found items into home decor.

Using reclaimed wood for Folk Art satisfies my need to be creative.  I enjoy taking reclaimed wood, cutting, painting and repurposing it as something whimsical, fun and playful.  Living by the sea offers me a fresh ‘crop’ of driftwood daily to use in the making of Driftwood Art, such fun to create, and of course it’s very gratifying if others enjoy them as well!

    Sounds like driftwood heaven!
    Thanks for visiting my beeseeker blog and for the follow and good luck with the beach combing. I remember visiting Vancouver island and finding some spectacular sculptures on the beach made from “found materials” have always wondered and marvelled at them.
