Sea Glass Treasures

Yesterday the sun was out, dear daughter had the day off from school, so we packed up and headed for the beach. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the beach wasn't crowded at all. There were a few families but we found mostly moms and kids and/or dogs relaxing and playing in the surf and sand. We packed a lunch, sunscreen, towels, beach chairs, water, books, my big floppy hat and a large plastic bag. I always bring a bag with me as I love to comb the shore for treasures. This was yesterdays find. I love beach glass and have collected it from almost every beach we've ever visited.

This is just a small sampling of what we brought home. I'll add the sea glass to our collection and the shells to the jar we keep them in. We found only one half of a sand dollar. And we didn't find any dark blue sea glass, which is my favorite and I always jump around with glee whenever I do find a piece. We did find a lovely shade of light blue pieces though.

Some of these have a natural hole in them and I may get inspired by my sister Barbs jewelry work to make them into some sort of necklace or artwork. But for now, they just bring a smile to my face as I think they are a beautiful free gift from nature.

I love the part where you jump up and down with glee over finding Sea Treasures...I can so relate. Hehe! The light blue or sea foam green pieces are very pretty. Pretty enough for a Mermaids;)

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the lovely post! Sea glass is getting more and more difficult to find especially the more rare colors like cobalt blue. Looks like you had good day though :)

I love sea glass! The blue is my favourite also. I purchased a lovely seaglass necklace a few years ago and love it.
