One of my favorite sea glass colors to find is opaque white! Opaque white sea glass often comes from antique milk glass that used to be a vase, tableware, ink bottles, barber bottles, and more. I recently came across an antique canning jar lid that still had the milk glass insert so I sifted through my milk glass collection and look what I found!

OK, So many of you who visit already know that I am an avid beach comber and particularly collect sea glass to make jewelry with. One of the more rewarding aspects of collecting sea glass, for me at least, is to be able to identify my pieces. I found this lovely little pink piece that has a floral design on it. Then on another day, I found another lovely little pink piece in the shape of a pointy shoe. I didn't realize that the two pieces have a similar history until I went antique shopping! I recognized the pattern on a pink depression glass plate to match the piece of sea glass that I had found. It is the Cherry Blossom pattern. I brought the plate home and lo and behold the second piece of sea glass also matches the plate! What a find!! There is so much undiscovered history in pieces of sea glass!

My husband, Andrew love looking at the stars. During the recent lunar eclipse he was able to take some awesome pictures through his telescope! Me, having artsy connections took that picture and gave it to my fellow friend and artist, Rob/PlayNature to turn it into something special! Here is the original photo and the gorgeous Mandala's that Rob made!
To view more of Rob's work you can visit his store on Etsy at:

So the Winter Storm has arrived and the birds are getting ready to bar down the hatches. I am feeling guilty since I realized that I was out of suet and that is why my lovely woodpecker friends are on the regular bird feeders. What an array of birds we have today!
