that sea glass and other beach assortment are extraordinary! such a nice variety of colours and textures. you are lucky to have such friends :)


So many sea glass necklaces on the horizon ... I love Ariadne's beautiful sea urchins and her embroidery card too. Happy birthday Ariadne ! I'm so happy, Margie, that you get treasures from all over the world !
Have a nice Friday ... the week-end is coming !


oooh my what beauties that the sea & the trees gave to Ariadne, and that she collected and then gave to you. I llove sea glass, but we don't get much any over here. Aren't the ball seeds from a variety of Platanus ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platanus_orientalis ) ? The seed pods tell me something, but I've seen so many of them that I hardly recall. I'll have to do a little research.
and have a sweet day, ladies all over the world ! oxox


Bountiful box of treasure indeed! Beautiful glass and the jute bag will be perfect tied to your belt to drop your finds in while walking through the woods. Are you mapping the stone travels from around the world? It would be fun to see them mapped.

And happy, happy birthday to Ariadne from me too :)

What a beautiful, thoughtful gift to receive from around the world. The beach glass are so big and and beautiful. It's amazing how so many lives connect through the world of blogging. We are all so blessed in our lives with such wonderful friends. Enjoy your treasures, I am sure we will be viewing them in the future.
Wishing you a wonderful birthday Ariadne.


oh this is so sweet! I am from Greece too so, you can imagine my surprice when I saw the paulides box!

Lovely World

Love the orange stones. I don't see that color here in Western Massachusetts.


How lovely of her to send you little natural treasures. The dinky urchin shells are beautiful!


Oh and I almost forgot... happy birthday Ariadne!

I wonder about that seed that looks like an elongated acorn. So interesting!


Thank you every one for the birthday wishes! I wasn't expecting to have my parcel shown here so I am a bit embarassed but again I feel that Margaret deserves our friendship as she is such a generous person herself.Margie you have inspired me so much with your blog,I really feel like starting my own.
I think that the long seed pod is from an acacia tree,the round thorny ones and the bigger leaf are from Platanus orientalis and the other leaf is from a magnolia tree.There is also a Quercus coccifera commonly known as acorn!Unfortunately I have not found the other flowers yet but hopefully I will.Ariadne from Greece!
