Sands of Time

Sand is simplistic and plentiful on beaches,  yet we often don’t see it much in decorating.  Explosion Luck offers all kinds of knick knicks and decorative items for the home. This includes sand art pictures. We truly adore this one made to look like an antique porthole.

Captain Haddock antique style porthole is a moving sand art picture $250.00!

Conversation Starters and Story Tellers

If anything both the vases and sand art above are true conversation pieces.  We also love to keep people guessing when items are repurposed for use in decorating.  The below finds all will keep your customers asking you, where did it come from?

Reclaimed Wood Shelves , Etsy shop JPCreations1 $35.00

Reclaimed wood is a big broad topic and we adore the fact that old wood can find a new home rather than being burned in a fire pile or discarded. What a wonderful way to adorn your home and have one of a kind decor that no one can match even if they tried! Dare to be different and unique with these finds.

Insects with a Twist
