For the love of rocks!!!

Rocks




My middle daughter and I both share a love for rocks! The one place that she has asked for us to visit on our journey is Maine so that she can see the beaches that have rocks instead of shells.. sounds LOVELY! My home was full of big glass jars that held the rocks that her and I found over the years, I have a special love for the heart shaped ones! My car has my favorite three in the cup holders even now! Its a little obsession but I find that I'm drawn to them!

So the rocks are my inspiration... my decorating paint palette!

I'm in love with these adorable soft rock pillows!!!

  1. We also have a little rock collector that is so proud to bring in his favorite finds nearly every day. I have jars and jars of "Micah's rocks" on my countertops. Our family has always wanted to visit Maine and eat all that good seafood:) Enjoy the journey~ it's worth as much as the destination!

  4. We'll be on Hermit Island in Maine at the end of July camping! If you are passing through western Mass. let me know (email me through my blog) as we would love to play.

    We took our kids crystal mining last year. Huge rock hounds here.

  5. We're just back from a four-month family trip around the country, and we had a wonderful time collecting rocks of all shapes and sizes along the Eel River in Myers Flat, CA. Honestly, it's an odd little place on the Avenue of the Giants. We stayed at Giant Redwoods RV Camp, and the campground is right on the river and provides no end of rock hunting. We found some nice heart-shaped rocks, lots of good skipping rocks, and even some pieces of jade. If you wind up on the west coast, it's a rock-hunter's paradise.

  7. Thank for coming by my blogspace! I love rocks too, though my fondness has been more of a recent development. I recently found some with some really cool fossils, and I have yet to figure out what to do with them :).

    Are you RV'ers too? We're about to move to NC and build a yurt on some property there, and meanwhile we'll be living in an RV. I look forward to checking out the rest of your blog! Your kids are adorable too ... I see their photos on the right :).
