Aaron and Keegan are our two kids that live in Maine. They sent us this mobile for Christmas. It is made from beach glass. I have written about sea glass before as being the disposed glass items that have washed ashore on the beaches. The waves have polished it among the rocks and sand and eventually it comes to surface in the sand.
I have reviewed two different books about the abundance of the material along the eastern coastline, especially along the Maine coast. Divers go down in protected harbors and bring up China dishes and doll heads. Ceramic bowls and glass pieces from bottles are found in harbors and along the shore.
Goose Rock Designs is the company that made this chime. It is recommended not to place it outside where the wind is strong. Iowa's 60 mile and hour wind storms would destroyed it so we will probably hang it in a window. It sounds wonderful and the colors are great.
This is a view of our driveway that has not been cleared. The leftover plants and shrub portray a still life in the foreground.
The redtwig dogwood looks great against the snow. I took this Sunday afternoon.
This morning I took this view of the same bush looking over the top of it. The frost is covering every shrub and tree right now but soon it will seem like it is snowing as it falls off the branches and floats to the ground.
Thanks for stopping by...........
