It’s lovely to have friends who’ll walk many miles with you to search for sea glass. But to take that enthusiasm a big step further and create a beautiful display for the glass?
A true friend indeed. In my case, that friend is a fellow Scot, Louise Todd, with whom I’ve beachcombed on the coast near Port Townsend, Washington. She knew of my interest in collecting sea glass marbles, not just in Washington State, but also thousands of miles away, at Lyme Regis and Seaham in England.
To create a fitting display, Louise found a vintage marble display tray and personalized all four sides with a poetic tribute to my marble collection. I haven’t beachcombed on the coast of Spain yet, but it’s now on my list!
