Love it. I'm a rock and shell collector - even had the movers bring some big rocks in the van - or did I bring them in my car? And crystals. And pottery. And....

Anyway, I should probably do this with mine, too.

Beautiful! I never thought of doing that but I really love the look (and the sentiment). I rarely pick up rocks on the beach because I'm so focused on the hunt for beach glass. I do grab the occasional piece of interesting driftwood though. The beach glass is easier on the pockets than the rocks!

Beach glass is definitely easier on the pockets. I love it but pretty much have given up looking for it and do the rocks instead. Years ago, Mark made the most gorgeous piece of stained glass that used various kinds of clear and translucent glass and beach glass, very soft and unusual looking. Alas, he made for an old girlfriend (but I did see it once at her house and admired it and thats how I discovered he had made it). I need to get him to search for beach glass again and make me one!

By far the best beach stones I have found scattered along the beach was in New Zealand.
I am currently in China, the Chinese love rocks, they clean them, polish them and invariably sell them - They come in all shapes and sizes, some small as a coin others as big as a small car, everyone of them with a price tag. If you are lucky enough to find a good one the chances are there will be someone willing to pay for it.

It's so much more fun reading and viewing your posts now that I have seen your yard and garden. I am currently beating back grass that has invaded one of my garden areas.

What a great way to utilize your collection of rocks. You have some beauties in there.
