This spring, Mr. BTEG and I began to search for beach glass during some of our trips to the lake shore. Some of the pieces of glass are so tiny, that my 12" dolls can have their own collection.
I wanted to have the glass in the sunlight, so that the light made the glass sparkle, but this also made my photo not turn out as well as I would have liked. I guess I'll just keep trying to improve.
Here are some other interesting pieces of glass that Mr. BTEG, the Dancer, and I have picked up.
You can tell the part of the bottle from whence these pieces of glass came.
Some of the pieces of glass still have letters on them. This was probably part of the words "One Quart."
This glass has gotten extremely cloudy with time. I'm thinking the S. was part of U.S. Not sure what the W could be.
I like cloudy pieces of glass as something different from the plain clear pieces.
Not sure what this is, maybe from a Pyrex bowl. I couldn't get a good shot of it, but whatever this was, it was genuine.
There are lots of pieces of pottery or tile that wash up onto shore. There are also lots and lots of shells, although not very many large ones, due to being fresh water.
I have several pieces of very pretty blue glass. The dark blue is one the rarest, if not the rarest color for a beachcomber to find. I find it interesting that there are so many shades of blue.
Do you have any fun plans for the summer with your dolls?
6/26 I'm adding a picture of an ornament that I bought, made from beach glass, driftwood, shells, and I think some pottery.
