Gifts and treasure

We had a nice family get away around Lake Superior. 
First we went to relatives house in Wisconsin. They just moved into a new house. We wanted to bring them a housewarming gift.  I decided on some coasters...bigger house...more guests...more need for coasters right?!?

In addition, they are also big Green Bay Packers fans. 
Since Mr. G makes these great dice trays for games, we thought it would be fun to customize one a for a couple of our favorite Cheeseheads.  
I think it turned out great!

After a wonderful day and night in Wisconsin, we traveled back into Minnesota to stay in Canal Park, Duluth.

Little J and I could hardly wait to start sifting through the rocks in search of sea glass like we found last year

The sea glass from last year is in the little bottle. We definitely did much better this year. The whole family got involved at one point. It's so addicting...like treasure hunting. In my eyes it is treasure!!!

Some of the bigger pieces...which are still smaller than a bottle cap...I'm going to attempt some jewelry.

Nice gift ideas, really like the coasters. Sea glass is hard to find along the Oregon coast.

Thos coasters are the coolest I've ever seen! You definitely hit the jackpot with beach glass! I'm sure you'll make some lovely jewelry with it!

ooo Loving your sea glass treasure!
it does take a very good eye and lots of patience...my kinda fun!

Those coasters are the bees knees...so creative and the dice tray is a work of art too!

Such thoughtful and useful and artful gifts.

It looks like a great place to visit...sand and water and fun!

Those coasters are SO much fun to see and read. I love them. And Mr. G's tray is incredible. What perfect gifts and so very personal, too.

The only "sea glass" I'm going to find in this land locked state is when I break a glass and throw it in my rock tumbler. Then I can't even call it sea glass, only tumbled glass. Yours is awesome and the green is beautiful.
