Sea Glass -Guest Blog

Remember Joanne sent the beach glass yarn the other day? She contributed the Nova Scotia posts this past week, the Loonies and Toonies Store in Lunenburg.

She wrote and mailed some photos below after I asked her about the glass she finds on the beach in Florida.

Joanne says 

1. I walk the beach almost every day, and I’m always on the lookout for sea glass – this was a lucky day because often there is none to be found. Most common   colors are clear, green, and brown. Least common colors are cobalt blue, red and purple.

2. Here’s my collection of shells and sea glass. The tiny colorful glass in the lower right hand shell on the table comes from a beach in Spain (collected by my sister). And the tiny glass in the upper right hand shell on the table comes from a beach in Nova Scotia. All the rest from the beach here on the Atlantic Ocean side of Florida.

3. My friend Celia separates her sea glass treasures by color and displays them on her kitchen counter.

4. Since Hurricane Matthew, Celia and I find lots of large shards of glass, bottles, and lightbulbs among the debris on the beach. Celia collects this for a future art project she calls “Hurricane Glass”.  img_0842
