Hi Kim,

I love these marbles -- they are beautiful. They bring back memories collecting them when I was a very little girl. At the cottage we pulled along boats filled with acorns, and collected marbles in glass jars. The boats were made of wood and we were allowed to toddle in the shallow water for hours making up stories about taking our
products to market. Funny to think of now.

Great post and great art.
