I’m A Rock Nerd.
There, I Said It 😉
Ok. I can’t help it. I love rocks.
We pick them up everywhere. We ship them home. It’s true! I got that idea from my SIL.
There’s something about the colors and the specificity to a region, a memory, a feeling…and they’re FREE!
(Well, not if you ship them home, but oh, well 🙂
Did I mention that my husband makes little rocks out of big rocks, for a living. Yes, he does.
I guess that just reinforces our Nerdiness…kind of like enabling an addiction? 😉
Anyway, we both really love the beauty of rocks and love finding them together.
You’ll see more rocks than you may want in this posting,
but this was the trip to do it, as we are in the middle of a remodel and needed to work on our exterior plans.
We met with a fellow nerd, our mason, and he took us to a wonderful stone yard called, Pine Stone. It was like a candy store. We didn’t have ANY trouble falling in love with this beautiful stone. These 3 pallets have our names on them 🙂
I asked him if it was too crazy, that we collect the deep dark colored rocks to add to the pallets. It could have gone either way, but he said, of course we could! I won’t tell you how many hours we collected rocks, because you would insist that we get professional help, but, it was pure joy for us! I mean, look at the surroundings and it was so COOL out!
So, you learn very quickly, that all of the Colorado stone yards call the sandstone Red, but it’s not. Some is rose, some is rust, some is red, some is maroon and some is purple. Just like paint colors…it all varies….and it’s all beautiful.
We DIDNT JUST LOOK FOR ROCKS…sort of 😉
We need furniture for this house and certainly not every trip, but we have found some great furniture in the Crystal Valley!
So, there you have it…our trip and a confession to Rock Nerdism. There is NO cure;)
It’s so fun for me that you stop by for a little read.
I love sharing my life with you.
We are all the same. We have experiences that we love sharing. I’m lucky that you do it with me…
Looking forward to our next meeting…
Best as always…Laura aka Hastypearl
Oh, oh, oh…I almost forgot! I’ve finally figured out how to list Hastypearl products in my Shop(look at the top bar). I’ve listed a wonderful Cream Vintage Button Jewelry Pin Brooch, that I hope you will take a look at. Shipping is included in this listing!
I’m ready to start showing you lots of Vintage Parts and Heirloom Art, there. I’ll explain how it all works in the listing. I hope that you’ll find lots of goodies that you’ll enjoy either for yourself or loved ones 😉
