An Inspiring Danforth Anchor

We're coming upon my favorite time of year and I'm getting ready.  Went to the co-op this week and picked up this old Danforth anchor.  I love it!  The patina and shape caught my attention weeks ago and I had my fingers crossed that it would still be there.  Sure enough, in the same spot!  There's something about the old heavy chain...wonderful for a beach cottage mantel eh?

Now all I need is an old wooden boat to row around the bay in.  Of course I'll bring my trusty anchor to hold me steady as I enjoy a cool drink and lazily soak up some rays.

I know where there's a little white boat that's perfect....'s filled with roses!

Hello Roberta... pretty new photo of you! And I LOVE your new anchor... Jack and I are sailors, well, we used to be, we sold our sailboat and have not bought another one yet... I wear a little gold anchor pendant around my neck! That looks so great on your mantle! And the little white rowboat full of roses is delightful! xoxo Julie Marie
