I used to have a thing for containers ... I collected every container I could find, from big rubbermades to itty-bitty glass containers - I just couldn't get enough of them. I'm over that obsession now. But I still like to collect some things. There is nothing in this world that beats a day at the beach collecting sea glass! (except maybe a nice foot massage)

When we lived in Sitka, Alaska we spent many-a-day wandering the rocky beaches.

Here's the thing ... It feels like a treasure hunt! And when we'd get it home and add it to our collection it would feel like such an accomplishment! As the days away from Sitka have turned in to years, our little treasures have become even more valuable to us. You see, the treasure isn't monetary - each piece of sea glass carries a treasure of memories.

What are your treasures?

  1. Those photos are beautiful! How great that you lived in Alaska. That had to be soo cool:) Happy day, darling

    Ps: I am hosting Paloma’s Nest GIVEAWAY today:).Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

  2. I have a box full of "beach treasures". Two of my childhood friends and I collected tons of seaglass and rocks and kept them in our beach treasures box, it brings back such fond memories.

  3. to be able to treasure hunt on the beaches in Alaska must have been so wonderful. i love treasures right from nature! :)

  4. How fun! What a great idea to do!!!! My kids always pick up seashells and rocks, and I just throw them away when they aren't looking because I don't need anymore "stuff" in my house. But this is a great idea to showcase their little teasures!
