Since our childhoods, my husband and I have loved collecting rocks. Both of us had grandparents who also collected rocks, and helped us start some collections. In this post, I'm presenting some practical ways you can display groups of small rocks together besides having them stored so you can't see them or stung out everywhere.
In this bowl, I keep my childhood rocks. As a kid I would always pick up rocks I liked off the dirt road where we lived (the little salmon colored rock). In the middle, you will see the Caveman Kit Kat Bar given to me a la my friends who lived down the road, and the Caveman Toe Print on the right. (Funny things we kids saw in these rocks). When I was 10 my grandparents took me on a road trip to the west coast. The white round rock is from the Columbia River Basin, as well as the volcanic rock.
