Sea Glass ~Beach Glass
Be sure to visit Rhoda's Party for all kinds of Thrifty Treasures!
I have never met a piece of sea glass that I don't like. Such beautiful transparent bits that originally started out as trash. Years, even centuries ago, some sort of glass bottle or vessel was thrown into the sea. Sand, rocks and pounding tides thrash the glass shards into smooth jewels. How lucky is the finder of these gems that finally wash ashore.
I found a large glass container at Goodwill for $3. Solid and heavy, it won't break easily. I shopped my house and came up with my sea glass collection and an overly loved candle, that will do for now, until I find a nice sea blue one. Now I need a couple of sun bleached starfish to fill the rest of the space.
