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.

I've always wanted to find some beach glass, but I haven't been near an ocean in 20 years! Love what you did with yours!

I love sea glass too but haven't found any since I started actually looking for it. Looks very nice in the vase with your candle.

Update on Amy! The doctors came in, they talked to Amy and were finally able to get the IV started. Ladies we start praying, it will be 2 more hours now, Amy is back in the procedure room. The Dr.s like to use the artery on the right side of the groin, but Amy had cancer there at the age of 10 and there is scar tissue there, so it may not be possible on the right side and they may have to go to the left. Debbie said that Amy was hesterical this morning, but after talking to the Dr. she had calmed down. The Dr. said they will occlude the corotid artery for 30 minutes, if she shows no sign of a stroke then she will be scheduled for surgery, if at any time in those 30 minutes if she shows a sign of stroke, then the surgery will not be possible. We have jumped the first hurdle with prayer, we move on to the second. Thank you so much for loving our family, Sherry

Enjoyed your bit on homeschooling. I also homeschool 4 children and it can be especially challenging moving a lot in the Army and trying to find a support group of other homeschoolers. Cute blog too.
