Announcement    Hi folks
I am back from holidays in Portugal, which was gorgeous, very warm and bright blue skies. LOL, i returned to an even hotter Scotland, with even brighter blue skies! Sadly there was no sea glass to be found around the beaches/ports near my holiday spot, so I can tick this area off of my sea glass treasure trove map. Anyway I hope everyone is well, keeping safe and finding lots of gorgeous sea glass.
Firstly thank you to all my customers, past and present, some are collectors of sea glass, pottery, some just love glass of all kinds, some are incredible crafters and make the most beautiful jewellery/art from my sea glass finds. If you fancy checking Marianne and Heather out:
Japanese kimono cords, cultured freshwater pearls, decorative sliding bails and end caps and paper clip extender chains with Scottish Sea worn pottery @ https://www.mercari.com/u/161281022/
Others come to look for unusual dump dug finds (ever changing) or perhaps they just come to see what my next mad idea will be. I hold my hands up, to becoming a bit obsessed with "things" to display/safe keep your sea glass in, whether this be vintage insects, frogs and in the next few days, I am hoping to get a gorgeous glass swan photographed!!! If nothing else, I hope my little displays bring a laugh or a smile to you.

My obsessions continue to be "dump digging". Though I dig, I had no idea that there was a "community" of serious diggers, who dig deep, very deep to look for interesting treasures. LOL, now I have "deep dump digging" to add to my bucket list, as well as "metal detecting" and mudlarking"!
Firstly as a forager, I am always on the look out for beautiful, interesting and unusual finds, so when I happened upon an elderly gentleman selling some incredible old glass bottles, ginger beer bottles on facebook, my nose got the better of me and I just had to go and take a look. As it transpires, he was a man after my own heart! This gentleman had been a "dump digger", digging up to 10 feet down to look for hidden treasures/antiquities and had amassed the most amazing collection. His depth of knowledge on his finds was just incredible and I spent hours and hours listening to his wonderful recollections. LOL, when I got home, I thought my husband might roll his eyes, at more "stuff" to fill our house, but he was as blown away as myself and now wants to keep the pieces that I was going to sell to recoup the money that I spent.
Anyway, meeting this gentleman, was a life affirming moment for myself and I am now making concrete plans to "dig deeper" and metal detect harder on my husband's home farm in Ireland, which sits on the site of the "Battle of Benburb" 1646.
I think you can tell, that I am one excited forager.

Foraging for The Soul

I have always loved foraging, whether looking for berries in hedgerows, picking up windfall, hunting out chanterelles or gathering driftwood, stones, shells, glass and sometimes weathered plastic from the beach. Yet it was only recently that I thought of merging this passion, with my life as an artist.
