Why is it that I only get sales on Folksy when I’m not doing the daily listing challenge? I might have to miss August! Well, at least the craft shops and galleries are starting to reopen and I’ve had a few offline sales to bring my confidence back.

Your wish is my command @CreationsforTinyTots :grin:

Here is my haul for yesterday, I was out for about an hour. As you can see aqua and clear are the most common colours but I find quite a lot of greens and teal colours too, I am very happy to find cobalt blues and the pink one is the first I’ve ever found as it’s one of the rarest colours … not many pink glass bottles made!! :laughing:

I only collect glass that has been smoothed by the action of the sea and it takes 30 - 50 years to get that lovely frosting and smooth shape. Anything too sharp I collect in my ‘rubbish’ bag along with plastics and other rubbish which goes in the nearest bin!

The best beaches to find sea glass are pebble-y beaches, so it can be quite a task to find sometimes and I’ve found that oddly if I find a piece of glass, within a foot there’ll be another piece!! bizarre. Sandy beaches are best for slate and also throw up the most plastic and rubbish as these are generally the more grockle-y beaches. :anguished:

Anyway I’ll stop yapping on about sea glass :shushing_face:

Thanks for the pudding love @TheChrisArtist and @aamjewellery … you can’t beat a good pud!! :yum:

Good evening everyone. Finally got here.

I mentioned my washer/dryer earlier in the month which developed a fault at the end of April. I have cover with D&G. After 3 call outs the fault still exists. Numerous emails to customer service, then numerous emails and phone calls to complaints, still no joy ( I am basically being ignored) so today a strongly worded email to the CEO and if I get no response there it will be the ombudsman. I’m so angry :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

Today’s listing
7443365-Hand-knitted-baby-cardigan-bonnet-booties-and-mittens-set-6-12-months-0

All loved and pinned to here.

Love a bit of sea treasure chat - I also collect sea glass and sea pottery with a view to including in jewellery but haven’t done much with it other piling it up and making one pendant. I’ve been experimenting with melting the non-frosted stuff to make beads and cabochons but got distracted with this challenge. I’ve also got a big pile of driftwood as was going to make jewellery stands for craft fair displays but that’s also currently abandoned. Interesting what you say about pebbly areas and finding them close to each other - I find the same - it’s like they get thrown up in drifts. I’ve had to stop myself picking up seagull feathers - a step too far :grinning:

What’s the make of your washer/ dryer Carol?
I’ve got insurance through D&G with mine but when I book an appointment for an engineer it goes directly to Hotpoint and that’s who I have to deal with. (I can’t fault them for their quick repairs although I do often wonder of they fix it properly as it does break down about twice a year!!) It;s getting harder for them to get the parts, so I’m hoping they will say they have to replace it one day…lol!

Ah, a fellow sea treasure nut!! I knew there must be some on these threads!!!
It’s so addictive and absorbing isn’t it, my hours hunt yesterday was very quick, I usually like to be out for 2 or 3 hours or until the tide says “for goodness sake woman … go home” :laughing:
:rofl: :rofl: I had to laugh about what you said about the sea gull feathers … today I picked up, yes you’ve guessed it two beautiful feathers!! I think they’re from crows/ravens or similar! they have the most amazing iridescent colours in them. Of course I have absolutely no idea what I’m going to do with them … how many times have I said that!!
