This blog shows the folkart I make, my reproduction furniture and other projects. My studio/shop is in my backyard. It's a couple of miles off the main road in West Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada. When you come to visit make sure you see – the "Olde Times" Garden House Museum; Grandma's Attic; the Furniture Box; Grampa's Loft (antiques, old doors, etc. in my Dad’s old barn loft); and my World's Largest Egg Beater, certified by Guinness World Records.

Whale bone vertebrae

     I got these whale bone vertebrae from a fellow who was beach combing on his 4-wheeler about a month ago after a storm.  I heard he had them, so I approached him and bought them from him.
     They were still oily and very smelly - I used a pressure washer and clean them up.  Today, I have them on my shop south roof drying and expect they'll be there all summer.   In the fall, when they are dry enough, I'll work them into my art

  1. That is so cool! I have never found anything that huge while combing the beach, but I do know that it can be a lot of fun if you have the right equipment with you to dig down deeper into the sand. There is a potential for innumerable treasures beneath the surface of the beach. All it takes is curiosity.
