they're lovely, I like picking up stones with holes in, but they don't make such good rings..

Love natures freebies too, I posted a day or to ago about sea glass, which i adore.
I have a mobile made from oyster and limpet shells with holes in, my Mum made it for me, they are strung simply in a line on transparent fishing line and look beautifully simple and seasideish....not long till we come to Craster (well 3 month) cant wait, the little beach there has loooooooads of seaglass!


We call the sea glass...
I always feel I have won
a prize if I find some...
I adore the beach so calming
just to walk and think ,I am always surprised how far I have walked along
when I look back...BLISS {:>))))
