Friday Finds | Beach Glass & Sea Urchin Shells

This post was supposed to go up yesterday (when it was, uh, Friday) but Justin and I stayed out late celebrating 10 years together with friends… and I kind of forgot. Well, here it is…

Last week, I explained my fixation with found objects. This week, I’ll show you a few of the things I keep around to decorate our apartment.

I love the look and feel of objects that are weathered and worn. The beaches here in the Pacific Northwest offer a wealth of stones, shells, flotsam, carapaces, and any pretty much anything else that can be washed up by the ocean. I’m a sucker for beach glass… it’s awful litter that nature has transformed into something amazing. The sharp edges have been sanded away and all that remains of what was once a carelessly discarded beer bottle is a soft, beautiful stone-like fragment. Here’s some of my beach glass, which I keep in a vase in the bedroom with a few sea urchin carapaces and shells from the Pacific Northwest, Mexico, and Florida coasts:
