EARLY WALK ON THE BEACH

A while ago I took my first walk on the beach of the season, 
I love, love to do this.  
I am always excited to find new treasures,  I was lucky enough to find just a few this year.

A tiny perfume bottle
 A handle that broke off from some sort of pottery

 Sole of an old shoe.  I always seem to find soles of old shoes.  I wonder, how long has the shoe been in the water, how did the shoe get in the water in the first place.  Is the shoe actually old enough to have fallen from a ship passing through many years ago.
 This is what I do with some of my findings.
I love to include them in vignettes around the house.
Some of these bottles I found in the bottle dump last year.
You can see that fascinating post here.
I was unable to walk to the bottle dump on this trip, the water was to high and to cold, burhhhh!!

 Another vignette of sea (lake) glass from our beautiful shore of Lake Champlain

When I visit the bottle dump again I will post my findings, can't wait.
Thanks for stopping by.
