A Pocket Full of Sunshine

If you were to borrow any one of my coats or jackets, you would no doubt find a pretty piece of sea glass in the pocket.

Today was a pretty day for a quick pass on the shore, on our way back from our walk. Most of our snow has melted and we have somehow managed to miss the last 2 storms that have taken their toll our our more southern coastal neighbors.

You can actually see two sets of footprints where Henri and I made our way along this small stretch of shore.

In a matter of minutes, this is what I found and tucked into my pocket. It's almost like they were a line of bread crumbs leading me back to the car. Sunny days are perfect for finding sea glass.

Here's what I did with the wire wrapped glass you see in the first picture. I added it to our bedroom chandelier.

Along with a few glass pendants.

It's just a simple thing that I enjoyed doing.

Would you like a pocket full of sunshine to play with too?

Leave me a comment or become a new follower and I will randomly pick someone on St. Valentines Day to receive these 16 pieces of sea glass I randomly found right here in Sorrento, Maine. They include the 8, that I just found today. Also, please make sure you leave your contact information in case your name is selected.

What a pretty thing to call the sea glass - a pocket full of sunshine. I saw a clear ginger jar lamp full of sea glass one time - it was tremendous.

I love the seaglass..., and the wire wrapping. I want to keep some in my pockets too! I rarely find seaglass around here, and would love to win these Maine beauties!!

Lili - if you take any one of my jackets, or even my jeans - anything which has pockets in fact, you can find bits of stone, polished glass, shells seeds ... I too would love to win the glass. How beautiful!
