UNIQUE BOUTIQUE FRIDAY! (okay, so I’m a day late…) “Spring Has Sprung”

No matter what the weather is outside, it can always be springtime with this cute little bird hanging out by its birdhouse and the budding flowers beneath the leafed out tree, created by Melissa Francisco using Lake Erie beach glass and pebbles.

IMG_2456Melissa Francisco calls herself “Washed Up”, referring to the materials that she uses in her designs that she has found on the shores of Lake Erie.  A good portion of her work brings new life to driftwood; through sculptures, painted pieces, or as accents.

Melissa has something for every season.  Especially stunning are her driftwood Santas!
