Heart and Doggies




















We went up to Constantine Bay for a walk on Friday and E found this lovely seaglass heart that he gave to me!  It is the most perfect heart shape and the colour is gorgeous.  It was a surprise as we are usually squabbling over our treasure finds and trying to barter with each other for the best bits, he must love me aahh!  I have quite a lot of heart shaped bits of glass and pebbles but this is the nicest one.  It was lovely on the beach, nearly empty and the sea was beautiful (I do have pics if you want to see them?)




















These two little darlings were my car boot finds last weekend.  I have a collection of 50s china in this pattern that we use every day, they always cheer me up, so it was great to find these and it wasnt till I got them home that I realized that they have an added feature, if you pull their tongue out comes a tape measure! And they were only £1.50 for the two!  The black one has been mended but they are still lovely. I must collect all my doggies together and take a picture to show you.

Jane you constantly tempt me - what gorgous pebbles and sea glass (I collect them too but they live in the bathroom in a very large glass jar which I pilfered from from the science dept clear out). I also love your little dogs - lucky lucky lady.
love H

Hello Jane, just popping over from Ginny's, I couldn't resist the lure of seaglass! And how perfect that little gem is. Lovely too to find a another cornish blogger, though I think you're further north in the county than me. That beach retreat you found looks so blissful, peeling paint and all.
Warm wishes,

Hello Jane. I found you via Diana's blog and I also come from Cornwall. I look over at the Roseland Peninsula from the Falmouth side of the bay. Lovely to see your sea glass x

I am rather fond of hearts myself (HA!) and would seriously covet your glass heart to add to my collection of glass, stone, silver, wood,ceramic, wire hearts etc..
The beauty of your glass heart is that it wasn't man made!
I am always amazed at other peoples finds at car bootys.. those dogs are charming! What a great find!
