Hunting for Sea Glass

I took this whole week off from work. I'm hoping it will be a nice mix of doing my favorite things and conquering my to-do list.

One of my favorite things to do is go beachcombing at Alki Beach in West Seattle. I love the beach. In particular, I love the tide pools and all the cute little critters you can find there.

Walking along the beach with a cup of coffee in hand and my sweetie at my side really is as good as it gets.

As you can see, on this visit I went on the hunt for bits of sea glass. I managed to find quite a few pieces. They are hanging out in one of my milk glass dishes right now.

And yes, I am sometimes so pale my powershot pretends that I am a sparkly vampire and blows the colors all out of normal. It's good times though. 

Hope your week is going well!

The absolute coolest idea I've ever seen for how to "display" sea glass I saw in a magazine or a home TV show somewhere. Of course it was like a billion-dollar house on the sea or something, lol.

Anyway, the center of the main door was filled with this window where the window only came about 90% of the way up to the top. Make sense? So there was a small gap where the top of the window ended and the bottom of the frame began.

The window itself was double-paned with the space in the middle open ... So the woman who lived in the house would always return from the beach with a handful of sea glass she'd found, and she'd drop it into this window space. It was about a quarter of the way full in the pictures and so brilliant and beautiful.

I really wish I could find the photo to show you; hopefully this makes sense anyway:) When I saw the idea, I filed it away in memory to do someday in my dream home:)
