I love sea glass, there is something so simple yet so special about it. I've collected it ever since I can remember.
Those tiny shards, or large hunks of weather worn glass have a story to tell. Maybe they were part of an old rum bottle that sailed the seven seas, or maybe an old glass bottle which contained a message from someone shipwrecked on a desert island somewhere.
Sea glass also comes in a remarkable array of colors, from soft lavender to bright neon green! No matter what the color, there is just something magical about an object that can endure the punishment of the ocean and instead of being destroyed, it becomes something beautiful.
So when Lili from Fearless Nesting had a giveaway of sea glass on her blog, I jumped at the chance to win some pieces from the beautiful coastline of Maine. I've been to Maine, but it was years ago when I was very little and I never found any sea glass to bring back with me. Thanks to Lili, I now have some wonderful sea glass to add to my collection!
Lili packaged my sea glass in the prettiest little hand painted box, with an embossed nautilus shell on top. I plan to use this lovely box to hold some of my favorite jewelry!
Of course Mr. Quinn had to check out what was inside my new box!
See that pretty piece of lavender sea glass on the left, and the wonderful heart shaped piece of brown sea glass?! Beautiful! Thank you Lili!
