Happy Howl-o-ween!

There isn't much going on here in Britknitterville today, so we went down to Fortescue to take a walk on the beach. I love to look for sea glass, and there was a bunch to be found today. Lots of green, too, which is rare, and even one piece of white glass! Take a look at this Halloween haul!

It might not look like much, but when you compare it to what's in this bowl which holds three summers worth of sea glass hunting, it's like I found a treasure trove of sea glass today!
Here they are together, looking like a very crunchy, very painful appetizer of chips & dip. Yum...
And, because no blog post is complete without at least some mention of the babes, I have to show how helpful they were with the photos today.

First Cooper helped while I was taking pictures of the sock I was supposed to finish by today for the Socks from the Toe Up Knit-a-long on Ravlery. Yeah, it's not "finished" so much as "barely started", but Coopie McLoopy wanted to lend a hand...

Next, Emma and Tara wanted to check out the sea glass. Such helpers.
Here is a good shot of Emma and all of the blonde that is coming out on her face. It's not white. Nope. She is NOT getting a white muzzle.
She is only 8 years old, so it's blonde. Blonde, blonde, blonde. I refuse to even consider the fact that it might anything other than blonde highlights.

I love the glass. Are you going to make something wonderful with it?

It sure looks blonde to me, and I should know. I'm getting some of that blonde in my hair, too.

Love the sea glass and your assistants. Blonde highlights are "in" so your girl's just trendy!

Looks like a very expensive high light, low light job. She should be proud.

I've got two with the same beauty secrets.

I LOVE sea glass... always so pretty and unique.

I'd swear it was blonde. Just like my husband's blonde. He was a blonde as a child and his hair is becoming more childlike everyday.

I prefer to think of the blonde you refer to as platinum highlights that I pay a lot to have placed 'just so' --
