Sea Glass.

On holiday in Italy a few months back we spent 3 afternoons in a quiet cove beachcombing for
Sea Glass. This is the haul that we found along with a few shells and bits of stonework that appealed to my "I could make something with that ". The pile of glass in front of the tray was the reject pile to be left behind but of course whilst The Doc's back was turned  I snucked it into the luggage anyway!

 I made this tag a few weeks ago for Tag Tuesday using some of the sea glass up.

As sea glass is technically snippets of glass and its now in my stash I'm going to sneak into the playground over at Pixies Crafty Workshop and share with the girls. If anyone would like some Sea glass then just email me your snail mail and I will put some in the post to you.

  1. Wow! What a fabulous haul. I've been collecting sea glass since I was a child but its not very abundant on North Wales beaches. The best place I've been to was Nice beach in France - my sister lives there.

    Love the tag - that's a great sentiment and you've illustrated it perfectly.

  9. Hello!

    What wonderful treasures! I clicked on the photo to see a larger picture and the stones and shells are beautiful - especially that large stone with what looks like a blue glass center. They are all wonderful - lucky girl! To spend time in Italy - what a dream! I have never seen sea glass - I would love a bit to have in my inspiration box if you have extra to share! Wishing you a happy day!

    Hugs,

  17. hi there Mrs A. ah sea glass you know the first time a blogger asked me f I hutned for sea glass alomnng our coast line I did not know what she meant - because we dont really have it - guess not in lone of seafaring boats throwing things over board like the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coastlines..I can only think of one tiny piece I have found in hours of walking on our beaches!
    I was down there today with my brother who was in town and he could not believe how lovely it is (about 23C for our winter - yes that is unusual but very welcome!) think he is jealous of me living where I do, and dont blame him; would not live in the city where he does for quids..still amazed how much you found and so much green too so pretty.. mm might think about emailing you just read that bit, very kind! love Shaz in Oz.x

  20. Absolutely gorgeous! I hunted for sea glass and shells on many beaches, and have a bowl of them in my bathroom. I've used shells on cards before but not the glass. Love the colours you have here - so beautiful!

  21. I would never have though of collecting bits of glass from a beach, but it looks so pretty. I know my daughter would be well into that, really her thing. I shall have to keep my eyes open in the future. Thanks for your visit and comment today. you are so right about the cost of the new belt. It is over half the original price of the whole machine, and I bet it will not last as long as the original belt did (from 1949). Hope to be back on the blogs now things seem to have calmed down a little. Life has been so busy with not much time left over even for making cards. xx

  23. What a great idea. And I think you would stand out in a crowd, you are a fantastically creative young lady. I think I'll sit with my coffee and have a snoop around your blog. Have a wonderful week, and good luck...you're entered in the blog-aversary drawing.

  24. I must admit i'm addicted to beachcombing for sea glass, each find feels like a real piece of treasure!

  25. One question for you? How did you not go over on your weight limit with all that glass?
    Lovely colours. Will have to go hunting with Dobby! Judging by the comments I doubt you have any left!
    Great way to use it on your tag.
