Sea Glass


I knew there would be much sea glass to be found at low tide after the big storm last weekend. Brad is excellent at spotting the little gleaming pieces, twinkling in the sunlight. He hands his discovers to me and I edit out the ones that are too big, or too small, or not polished enough. We are so pleased when we find a soft green or teal blue.

I have a large clear vase that I keep them in at home. I bring it out in the summer. Inside the vase I have a clear drinking glass with a candle inside. The sea glass fills the space between the two. When the candle is lit, the glass glows very cheerfully.

Nessie~Well, we are getting very close, another week or two. I'll just say that your cute-as-a-button photos of Mr. O are making me very anxious to meet my new grandchild.
