A new home

The sea glass story continues...

I went out on Saturday to find the perfect glass container for my new found beauties. I searched at Target, Kohl's, and then I found it at ZGallerie. A perfect little glass container that wasn't so big that the sea glass would get lost and when I collected more it would seem like I have been collecting for years.
Check it out~Snuggled right there on our book shelves, a new home for my new little pretties. I can look at it every time I come down from upstairs. It is the first place I look every morning. Here is a close up excuse the dust.(didn't realize it had been that long since I've dusted :(One fun little tidbit. The votive candle in the container is not really a votive candle it is battery operated. Have you seen them?? they even flicker! This made me giggle!
So there it is the sea glass story. With a little happy ending. I just can't wait until I can collect more!
So I am off this week to Chicago and I need to tie up all the loose ends that go with that and of course pack! I always get a little bit sad right before I leave. I don't really like to fly and I don't like leaving my family! Especially during the summer. I get a little bit of guilty Mom issues floating around. They will be fine and they won't even notice that I am gone for 4 days. But you know as Moms how it goes! I hate that! And really once I am there it is always fun and seeing people you only get to see at the show twice a year is a blast and I am spending a day in Chicago and I am going to dinner with Jodi and Matthew. Love those two. I should say three. They adopted a little baby boy last December so I finally get to meet Carson and snuggle him to pieces!! Can't beat that!
What kids??? HeeHee!
FYI~

The glass container is beautiful and it will look nicer with every new piece of sea glass.

It looked like so much more glass than that when it was all spread out! I can't wait to get to the beach because now I want to join the fun! You have me inspired.
