Beachcombing


My friend Merrilu and I like to walk on Wednesdays, while the kids are in school. This morning, she suggested we walk down at the beach by her house, which is where she usually collects sea glass. She wasn't a-kidding! Look at the treasure we found during our almost two hour walk. I think I have enough sea glass to keep me going for the rest of the year now, not to mention little tumbled pieces of shell, a few cool stones and that piece of driftwood. Yep, there's treasure everywhere, all right. A happy day.

These are great ... and you found cobalt! Did your back start to hurt from picking up so much sea glass! :-) Believe it or not, that's happened to me in the past at a special little beach in Maryland. But the cobalt and variety you got is stupendous!

Erin - I know what you mean. I'm lucky if I find 2 or 3 itty pieces at the beach near our house.

Barbara - yep, we did! Sort of like searching for shells on Sanibel Island - you just can't help but develop that strange hunched over walk...

Beach glass. I searched for it while I was living in Maine. So much fun!

I love sea glass and love working it into my designs, too! I just did a post on it and gave away some pieces for my 100th blogpost!
