How do I get through winter? If there was a hibernation option, I would take it. I can't tell you how good it feels to be back on the beaches, warm sun on my skin, hair whipping about my face, icey cold saltwater on my toes.

And sea glass hunting.  Spring is always the best time, gathering the baubles that winter storms have laid bare. My kitchen counter is spread with my favourite finds over the last two weeks. I want to admire them for as long as possible before they are added to the collection or made into jewelry. But I guess its time to clear the counter. Keith was away for work this week, and made the comment that the glass thats there now looks like the same glass that was there when he left, only more of it. Um, well, yeah. But I fed the kids when you were gone. Really, I did.

A few of my favourite pieces. The smallest red piece has the markings characteristic of a tail light from an antique car. The pottery piece with "Nordic blue" on it is patterned on both sides, here's the other side:

Beautiful, isn't it? I will have a good week creating.


  1. These are gorgeous... every one of them. I can see why you enjoy gathering them and it must be nice to live close enough so that you can walk the beach.


  2. It really is, I can't imagine not living near the ocean.

  3. Oooh, love that double sided pottery piece- can't wait to see what you do with that one!

  4. Nothing fancy, didn't want to take away from the piece, just a simple sterling silver bail- I'll be photographing it tomorrow to list on etsy.

  5. You find the most amazing pieces of sea glass! You must really have an eye for finding them. Last time I was on a beach I looked and looked and could not find any sea glass. I did find a tiny starfish which I created into an earring. Ever since I have been looking for another one to make an matching pair.
    Enjoy the warm weather! Happy glass hunting as well. :)

  6. Eliza, if you send me a photo of your starfish with a penny for size reference, I'll find you a match :)
