Treasures collected yesterday from my first sea glass specific beachcomb inspired by @seaglassindex.
.
Thank you ❤️
.
I was astonished to discover so many different colours AND to find a heart-shaped piece, in my favourite colour (green), which seems to match the handmade emerald sea glass earrings purchased from @artworksbygailpayne recently!!
.
Following the sage advice of @seaglassindex, I am being selective about which finds I keep, however I am eager to learn if you or @dr.beachcomb or @aqualiquiddreams have any experience of sea glass finds in my local beaches in Liverpool, UK?
.
And the black 'ball' in the middle is a conker from a Horse Chestnut tree, that appears to be semi-fossilised.

The inspiration for my latest Silver Birches nail polish artwork: a photo I took of the artwork on the walls of the @ritzcarlton Lake Tahoe, during my fabulous stay in August 2016... 💋

It's not everyday you take the @mersey_ferries across the Mersey to have scouse* for lunch, with front row seats on a waterfront bench, to a stunning view of the breathtakingly elegant @cunardline Queen Elizabeth cruise ship in port, before beachcombing for feathers & seaglass in the sun, at low tide, pausing for a homemade cream tea** at a vintage tea room, with salt on your lips & sand between your toes - on your self-gifted day off. 
Here are a few highlights after I watched her set sail from @cruiselpool because that's what ships are made for... 💋 * scouse is a traditional local stew
** cream tea is scone, clotted cream, jam & tea

Happy 113th birthday Granny! 💚

My granny lived 93 years: a shining light of love & laughter. She laughed away any disapproval of her eccentricities, lived for every moment, serving the community, always the life & soul of any occasion, adored the camera lens. 
She never knew Instagram, but would love seeing herself "in the limelight" here!
With me always, she inspires me every day... 💋

The Story of My Heart, Along the Way... It's been a work in progress for a few weeks now, since the idea emerged in conversation with Hearts Along the Way founder, Marianne Maes: to leave a heart charm I'd found, to be discovered (with a note), & shared on the movement's Facebook page, before sharing it forward.

The Short Story:
I repainted a wooden tag (which had been a loving gift to me), decorated one side with a heart design, writing an introductory message on the other, attaching the heart charm with ribbon.

As the artist of the tag design, my Artist's Statement is included below.

On Sunday 15 July, I decided today was the day to leave my heart (created with universal love), somewhere to be discovered, & then, to simply walk away... I left it by the water in Liverpool, a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for numerous cultural, social, architectural & artistic adventures, & I took the ferry 'cross the Mersey.

On my return, an hour later, as I walked by the spot where I had left the heart charm with tag to be discovered - it had gone!

Did you find it?

If you did, please share a photo, your story, & the love on Facebook at the Hearts Along the Way page, using the hashtag #heartsalongtheway.
And leave the heart to be discovered by someone else... Much love ❤️ Hearts Along the Way
by Diane Leigh Artist, UK (nail polish & acrylic, on repurposed wooden tag)

ARTIST'S STATEMENT "It is the artist's intention for the viewer to interpret her artwork as they choose, from the best awareness of Love they have at this time. 
These are merely guidance notes from the artist.

This design comprises two unequal, non-symmetrical hearts, representing the giver & the recipient. And in mirroring the heart-shape, a reminder that in order to receive love, we must first be love, to have it to give. The hearts don't touch because they (may) never meet in reality, but are connected eternally through the energetic vibration of love.

The stained glass window, lace-effect pattern is to represent the fragility of the human heart yet it's natural strength for love, & courage. And once again, the open cell-like structure is a reminder of the energy the heart symbolises - life.
