The starfish was placed but not permanent. As you can see, the wooden dowel wasn't cut yet. A base is TBD. To Be Determined!
If you can see the base used for this shot, and possibly a contender for a permanent base, it is a very old humidifier jar I saved from my childhood. Reminds me of Vicks Vapo Rub!!! Probably a collectible.
Here is a close up. The jar may bring back memories to many! Do you remember those old hot steam vaporizers? Wow, how things have changed! Bicycle helmets, car seats, all sorts of GOOD rules!
The Driftwood Tree will continue to evolve.
