A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Beach Glass, Stones, Fossils for Me?

Last week we went to a friend's lake house on Lake Erie. Two of my sisters were finding lots of beach glass, but me--nope, not me. I'm just not that observant. Finally! I found two pieces of white beach glass. Until then I was collecting seashells, beach brick pieces, slag, stones and one Petoskey stone. Either a Petoskey stone or a fossil stone. We couldn't figure out why a Petoskey would be laying on Lake Erie shores.

I just visited a couple of Etsy sites where people sell the same beach items. I just loved looking. However, my husband is planning on learning to use a jewelry drill to make holes in my beach treasures. I can hardly wait. I also found a pendant that is a piece of beach slate. It's really great looking!

Well, off to bed for me. Pleasant dreams of summer's last beach walks--at least barefooted! Sleep tight.

Stoned, Old Fossil

Nice to read of your walking on the beach and picking up treasures. That sounds wonderful. Thanks for the comment on my blog today. I appreciate your visists. You always say such nice things. I just bought a necklace today at a festival which was made out of beads, silver wire AND beach glass. So keep going. Diane
