My dear friend has moved to an oceanfront cottage in Hawaii. Sounds dreamy, doesn't it? But moving is moving, regardless of how glamorous the destination, so (in addition to planning a trip to see her!) I have been trying to think of things to help her adjust to her new beach-y lifestyle.
I think my best idea is that she could start a collection of "found objects" that wash ashore. I tore out this article from Coastal Living magazine to mail to her and hope she before long she can make a tabletop display of sea glass, driftwood and other treasures that she finds on beach walks.
All of this talk of sea glass reminded me of a darling shop I visited on Little Cranberry Island (Islesford) in Maine. It's called "Island Girl Sea Glass" and when I did a Google search to provide a link, I see that Travel & Leisure magazine has found her too! I met island girl, Kelly, when I was touring the island and found the weathered look of her shop (above) to be irresistible. Do you love sea glass?
