PPF & the buoys

So my Uncle Richard (1916 - 1995) had these 3 buoys from Maine hanging in a nautical collection on his house forever.  I procured these treasures from my Cousin Kathy (thank you Cousin), restored and repainted them with some Caribbean colors (but left hints of the original red and blue) and added numbers from 6 addresses where I have lived.  They originated from
284 Moore Hill Drive
and I've lived at
369 Ivy Drive, and
71 Renee Street, and
492 Plainville Avenue, and
41 Tanglewood Road, and
finally, and originally at,
40 Knoll Street
... just 3 buoys and so many combinations of numbers that worked!  Can't wait to get them outside to embellish by beach themed deck away-from-the-sea!
Check out Paint Party Friday and the announcement for the upcoming
PPF Auction Blog Hop
