Call of the Sea

I fell in love with this glass

when friends took me out for lunch
a few weeks ago

       We walked down past the old mill workings
                        to the craft shop

and there calling out to me from the cabinet.....

was this beautiful dish....

The different colours and bubbles

reminded me of the sea!

I'm joining Sunny Simple Sunday

and Nancy at Sunday Best


  1. You're right, it's like a frozen piece of sea!
    Enjoy your Sunday! :)

  2. It is delightful,beautiful,it reminded me of the gorgeous blue Bristol glass we saw when we were over there,I was given a piece as a keepsake,absolutely stunning no wonder you were drawn to it.

  3. You are right, the sea...blues, whites, even bubbles of sea foam. I really like blues anyway..then give it some shine and sparkle...sold! Beauty.

  4. Hello June

    Very appropriate....bit of sea it is.
    its beautiful and a joy to look at
    where have you put it?
    somewhere where the lights reflects on it I imagine :-)

    Keep well

    Amanda :-)

  18. Hi Joan,
    That glass is lovely and it really does remind one of the sea. Thank you for your visit. The saucer under the teapot is actually a cake plate and it is Coventry Garden made by Skye McGhie. It's pretty, isn't it? Hope you have a lovely week.


  19. Hello, just found your blog via Lori's. I'm so excited to find you, I am from Milford Haven and both my parents are from Fishguard/Goodwick. I now live in Chamonix, France.
    Where about in Pembrokshire are you? my fathers family were farmers in Manerowen.
    We are coming to Wales in October, I'm so looking forward to it. My kids love Folly Farm and I love visiting a candle workshop, can't remember the name of the place, but it's run by the wife of Brian John. Do you know it? Have you read his Mistress Martha books?
    Have a lovely day in the land of enchantment.

  24. Indeed, a lovely piece and does seem like it would be reminiscent of the sea, Joan
