Monday Etsy Madness- Sea Glass!

by Susan Myers on August 20, 2012

 Welcome to another Monday Etsy Madness, where we look at some of the great things found on Etsy!  Our theme this week is sea glass.  Coming back from a recent trip to California, the beautiful ocean is still on my mind.  I wanted to do a bit of searching for sea glass while I was there, but it turned out that you would need a climbing belt and no fear of heights to get down to the beach in most places.  So, I’ll just have to enjoy looking at the sea glass in Etsy.  Come see what I found!
