Sea Glass venture

Behind me is Lake Michigan. It looks and feels like you are at the ocean. I have found countless bits of beach glass (Mermaid's tears) along it's shores. Collecting beach glass is a favorite past time which allows me to spend many sunny days with my mom exploring the shoreline, making each other laugh, and just enjoying life. Posted by Picasa

  1. I think of you every time I use my fob or see sea glass. It is so wild to think about your comment that a lot of the glass probably began life as a beer bottle tossed into the lake.

  5. Pat, what beautiful work you do!
    And the picture of you at Lake Michigan makes me so homesick....I grew up on the Lake (near Whitehall) and I miss it every day...in fact, a lot of my quilts are about Lake Michigan!!
    We used to call it "lucky glass", and I even sew it onto my quilts...

  6. Allison, I just saw your site with your landscapes. You definately captured my favorite place, the beach. I like how you called it "lucky glass". You definately feel lucky when you find a piece. It is like treasure hunting. I take my mom with me, and we have decided when we find blue glass (cobalt), it means my dad left it for me, and the purple was left by my grandmother. It gives us and extra bit of excitement during our hunts.Thank you for the nice comments.Pat

  7. Thanks, Pat! We also called it Lucky Glass because it wouldn't cut you!
    Purple glass would be special indeed to find...I loved the cobalt blue, too...
    I finished up another beach scene from last summer and put it on my blog, if you'd like to have a look. I know you will relate...

  8. Pat, how nice to see the lovely face of the sweet "hussietoo" lady! BTW, still haven't gone to the beaches but I'll sure pick these glasses for you. You'll start your international collection!

  9. Candida, you are too kind. Yes, I am one of the "hussies too". LOL.I would love a piece of glass from you. That would be very special. Your beaches are probably not "polluted" like ours were with discarded wine,soda,beer, etc bottles to form the beach glass.
