Oh what a treasure indeed! Wow wow wow.


That woman is the real treasure !!! Your meeting must have been a memorable day ... and I wonder what would be her reaction if she visited your stone-Museum home ! :)


What a special friend and wonderful place for treasure. It's a joy to be able to see all that you found and your friend's treasures too. That book is amazing!


what a wonderful story, and so many beautiful stones. i think i always tend to be more of a shell collector than a pebble collector at the beach, but i do love a good rock when i find one.


Oh my God!I'm salivating! I love to search for little treasures! And I dream to find a place like this, with such beautiful stones and fossils!How lucky!

You are so lucky to have met someone like this. i too cannot picking up small treasures no matter where I walk. I have never seen such a beautiful variety of stones.
I found it was a lovely post and not heavy at all. Sometimes tough it is nice (helpful when you're down) to read of the lives of others.


Wow, what an amazing collection! I'm a little sad, I live in Florida, and we don't really have any rocks...boo.


Stones and fossils are supposed to be heavy! What a treasure trove (I especially love the stones with holes in them!)

It sounds like you found not only beautiful things, but a lovely kindred spirit.


Gorgeous photos! This is such a beautiful entry. Thank you for sharing those treasures via your blog.

I stopped by this morning (now it's evening) & I was certain I had left my paw, but I think instead, I have lost my mind !!
from a natural treasures collector to another, these speak to me so loud. Your friend paints so well, and her art speaks to me as well.

Ruth's painting is exquisite :) And so are all your newfound treasures!


I am envious of that rock collection. Lake Huron is one of my favourite places to find rocks. The majority of my rock collection comes from Lake Huron actually. Thank you for posting such lovely photos. I'm also envious of your chance to actually handle such treasures.




Hello! I absolutely can relate to the enthusiasm of this post. I am a huge rock hound myself. My favorite is agate hunting on the Oregon coast. It was fun to see your treasures!

My favorite is the Pucker Up stone - 12th photo, stone on left.


i'll bet you were like a kid in a candy store! wonderful.


i can only say that i can hardly wait to go on my own shopping trip in october...north shore, lake superior...oh yeah

Oh no apologies necessary! Beautiful stones - of the like I have never seen before!


I love the heaviness of this post!!


I am so inspired to go shopping around my house now! What a fantastic concept.


the 6th image is that one of her paintings? I adore it, would love to see more.


My friend, Corey, is one of those special people who I knew right from the start, even though he was only 8 when we met. We've been friends for almost 20 years!

Also, "ROCK" is one of baby Julio's favorite words, and one of his favorite things. He was sitting on my lap when I first looked at this post, and he went happy-crazy! I've never seen him respond to anything on the computer like that. I'll have to show it to him again tomorrow.

I've got a few of those brachiopods somewhere, too! They're beautiful.
