Sea Glass

My buddy, Belinda, first introduced me to the beauty of sea glass about two years ago, when she was staying over at Reeds Beach and we all went up to see them. It made such an impression on me, that when I got back, I started collecting it with a passion.

The hard part,though,is that in order to get the end result of beautifully polished glass, you need a tumbler for the stones.I have yet to get to that part: it is definitely on my to-do list.

This is a shot of a bud vase that I filled up with sea glass that I actually purchased when my buddy Juls was down visiting.I have always been a pushover for blues and greens, so I chose these stones for a calming effect when I am standing at my kitchen sink.I also have a large rectangular vase on my kitchen counter that I have filled with glass that I have actually found while walking the girls on the beach.It isn’t quite as pretty as the blues and greens in my bud vase, but the memories and potential of the polish to come is heart-warming.

I hope to eventually get a tumbler to get my stones polished and bring out their full potential.It’s my deepest prayer that both my girls will be able to walk the shore line slowly with me, and keep filling up my vase.
