Beach finds and a Happy Mothers Day to all!

Yesterday we went for a walk on the beach at Malahide, Co. Dublin where I spotted a large bit of Driftwood.  You know how much we enjoy beachcombing..... "No", said Himself, "we are not looking for anything today".  I replied, "There is no such state as off duty when it comes to looking for crafty stuff!"  So, of course we found somethings - just look at these lovely pieces of beach glass that I turned into tea-light holders.  They seem to be the bottom parts of jars or glasses and one of them has a lovely fluted design.  The sharp edges have been worn away by the sand and they are safe to handle.

After a good scrub and the addition of some Tea-lights:

Not a bad bit of recycling?  I am entering my sea glass finds in the Sunday Blog Love Linky Party
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mammies out there!
