Pebbles and other stories.

The first post of this on-line journal started with.....

"In the beginning there was girl who collected pebbles."

Pebbles, 'All the most beautiful things are gathered by the tide.' print by Fréya Eté on Etsy, and lavender.
Every time I reach the edge of the land my eyes are cast downwards.  I crouch, I sift, I collect and I leave the beach with pockets a little heavier that when I first arrived.

A few months ago I received a package from one of my regular reader, the Lovely Mrs. L.  She sent me some pebbles she had collected from the beach she walks in Queensland Australia.

This week I was delighted and surprised to find a package all the way from California, USA.  A fellow pinner on Pinterest commented on one of my pebble pictures and asked me if I would like some Californian pebbles.  Of course I said yes!  And true to her word they turned up in my little boîte postale on Tuesday!

I will just have to eat more toast and jam so I can clear some more jars for my expanding collection of immigrant pebbles!
