Sea Glass

Yesterday was a bit dull, but we got up & fancied doing some beachcombing...

It was low tide & the beach opened out...

Again we had the place to ourselves...



Love it! 
And we found some sea glass to add to our collection...

What shall we do with it... Any ideas?

Ooh lovely! I picked up loads at Port Isaac. I am planning to make a mobile. I think I will use silver wire to wrap round the pieces of glass. Next I need to find some drift wood for the top.
Years ago, Lewis made me a heart from plaster of paris and set sea glass into it. I think he used a metal mould, which might have been a biscuit cutter.

OOh lovely - The beach all to yourselves and beachcombing. Ah am deeply jealous!

How about using the glass to make some jewellery; would look pretty effective and would be a refound item. Might be a nice little sideline for you. I love the subtlety of the washed glass. Very pretty. Or failing that use it like tessare in a mosaic.

Take care

I'm not sure what to do with it, but is sure is pretty.

You've got some lovely walks near you and you take beautiful pictures and you've done it again. I've just given you an award http://notesonagarden-karin.blogspot.com/2012/01/blog-award-for-me-and-my-favourite.html

Thank you Kath & Pattypan for your ideas - we'll do some research & keep you posted.

Thanks Mel - apparently blue sea glass is valuable too!

Thanks for the award Karin - we are thrilled that you would think of us!

I have loads of sea glass in a tall jar (I think it was a posh olive jar I nicked off a flatmate once!) on my windowsill, so the sunlight catches it!

Sounds lovely Sooz - we found a couple more pieces yesterday too!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
