Wombled treasure

I love beachcombing. As you know, I am a "womble" and am forever finding "rubbish" to bring home. My favourite part of the day in St Ives, was when the tide was low and hubby and I could go for a walk to find treasure. Apart from the heart shaped pebbles, everything else that we found was "rubbish - sea glass, pottery, broken bouys etc. All of it was transformed by the sea into treasure. I thought the lovely blue nuggets that Carolyn had made for me when perfectly with the collection. It looks lovely when the candle glows at night.

A much nicer holiday momento than one of those hideous shell ornaments made to look like disfigured animals!

What a great 'souvenir'.

My last labrador (Eliza) had Wombling traits. If I walked her after a football match on a Sunday morning, she'd run around and bring me all their disgarded drinks bottles. I was like a litter warden clearing up after folk who couldn't be arsed to chuck their rubbish into the nearest bin.

I might have to steal this great idea of yours.

I think that is a great idea - just imagine what a posh homeshop would charge :)

I love to find all the boshed up bits of glass on the beach - you can find some amazing colours.
