Today was SUPER hot outside and normally I don't give a rat's patootie if it's hot outside but today was different. I was extra tired and decided to have a stay-inside kinda day. Only problem was, I was so totally bored just sitting inside! I started thinking about my very special beach on the Chesapeake Bay where I find my favorite things to collect - sea glass! I have not been able to go yet this summer and it's looking like I might not be able to go at all. This made me a teensy bit sad so I started day-dreaming about all the fun times that Trey, Isabelle and I have had on our last few trips to the bay. You can read about those trips here, here and here! With sea glass on my mind, I decided to pull out my entire collection and look at it all. So I braved the heat and went outside to my camper cause that's my special hangout where I keep my treasures - and, well, also some snacks that I don't want the other girls to find! Ssshhhhh, you gotta keep that a secret between you and me!
I have a guide that I keep up on my bulletin board in the camper that tells me which colors are more rare to find. I got out all my little pieces and organized them by color on my camper table. I don't have many rare colors but I do have a couple very small pieces of red which I am very, very proud of! I have lots of browns, whites and greens. Even though the greens are quite common, I still love that color - probably because of where they came from. Did you know that most of the green colored sea glass comes from old Coca-Cola bottles? Yep, they sure do! I still have not found any orange or purple. Those are super rare and I'll probably never find either one of them but I will continue to look cause the hunting is just as much fun as the finding!!
What about you guys? Do you have a special collection of treasures? If so, what is it? ~Lanie ☼
