St. Patty’s Day Treasures On The Beach

Yesterday, we had SPRING: sunshine, temps in the upper 70’s and a delightful breeze.

Bev and I took advantage of the weather and spent a little time beachcombing in the afternoon. I found some green, which I thought was appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day.  The shard on the far left is textured (embossed?) and a gold-green color. It’s the thickness of a potato chip.

But, my treasure for the day was this. A Bayer aspirin bottle, which was full of sand when I found it.

It cleaned up rather nicely.

We haven’t determined an approximate date yet.  Motor Man did a little online research last night, and we think it’s possibly from the 1930’s.

In the meantime, it has a new home on the shelf in our half bath.
