You Knew I Couldn't Stay Away....

Since my stitching projects are taking awhile, I needed an 'instant gratification' kit to knock together. This took about 3 days and is a fridge magnet which I gave to one of my friends.


So my cheapo diamond painted peacock is done and looks really pixelated. 

Turkeys in the neighbour's yard one morning.


I was killing some time downtown last week and...well...one thing lead to another and I found myself at the salt marshes at low tide to look for more glass.  

I never actually stopped to look at this before.

Hard to get a good photo though.  It's a map of the glass factory.

You can see it much better in this map I have on my wall.

You can even see where the boardwalk is.  So all those marshes near where the factory was are loaded with glass.  

This was a little troubling....I find it hard to believe that live clams would intentionally beach themselves at low tide in the sun.  I couldn't tell if they were still alive but the tide was coming in and they'd be covered by water.  I really hope someone didn't dump them there cause they are undersized. What a horrible waste.


My third haul from that location.  Very pleased with everything.





Red.  OMG Red.




I gave up my spot to a couple of friends so that they can pick up where I left off and I hope they find some great treasures too!  Just waiting for warmer weather cause I AM going into that creek at low tide to see if there's anything left.

  1. Nifty projects and oh, that glass. The greens catch my eye. I want to take off my shoes and wade in too.
    Happy Monday

  2. What are you going to do with that peacock? A bit disappointing, I concur. The seagull is very lovely. I have only seen 1 turkey venture into the yard. I know they have to be around ... Cool maps! I think you may be right about those little clams. :( More glass finds, what do you plan on doing when you have more?

    1. I don't know what to do with the peacock to be honest. It's not really display-worthy. The picture on amazon definitely made it look way nicer. As for the glass, not sure. They've been sitting on paper plates on my stove for 3 weeks. I need to get a jar or something!
