Seaglass and Sunshine

Here at the beach we call seaglass "treasure"

and hoard it carefully in glass jars and old blueware bowls.

I was thrilled a few weeks ago on a trip to Home Goods (to buy more beach towels! But, no...) to find this very special collecting box.

It's even painted in my soft beachy colors...

Now I have a place to store my very best finds...the rare sandollars, the transferware shards, the oldest, loveliest glass...

It also makes a great display case for my seaglass and other treasures/ found object jewelry, doesn't it?

I wish I'd bought more display cases...there was one that said Seashells...I didn't get it! (What was I thinking?) but I am loving my "find"...

A thunderstorm cut short our beach Sunday so I just got all my newest jewelry up on my etsy shop too...come visit? Or you can buy something you love right here, just send me a comment and we can work out the details. I am offering 10% discount to clients who but through my blog or mention my blog when ordering on etsy.

Summer Blues, Moonlight Sands,  and Beach Cottage HEARTS will be on sale soon too...





gone to the beach..........


PS I am thrilled to tell you all that my Summer Dreams treasure necklace (it's in that box somewhere, or you can click on the link) has been featured in a new esty Treasury: Dream a Little Dream of Me, along with lots of other lovely dreamy treasures. Check it out! I am so excited and honored! love, lizzy
