...memories & rocks

I am knee...make that waist...deep into Spring Cleaning. I've been staying away from the computer...such a distraction...but ran across these and wanted to share them with you. 

Picked up on adventures here and there, these rocks remind me of places I've been and memories I've made. I am sure many of you have your own collections of these pocketbook friendly remembrances...such fun to pull them out...and remember. 

I have many "naked" rocks as well...picked up from who knows where.

Note to self: Take along a Sharpie and label asap...because, no, you will not remember even though you are certain you will.

Now I have to get off this machine...clutter and grime await me. I'd rather be in.......

Enjoy the day,


  1. Great idea! Interesting to go back and remember where each rock was found!

  2. I love it! That's like our tree stumps but with rocks and memories of places. Fantastic! Good luck with the cleaning.

  3. Robyn,
    I love this idea! I'm going to do it in our travels. I'll make sure to have a sharpie on me! I admire you getting your spring cleaning done. It's still winter here so I'm not inspired to start yet. Thanks for taking the time to share. Hugs, Lori

  4. I have rocks / stones EVERYWHERE.
    Never one time thought to label them !
    In jars, in the garden, on ledges, on shelves.....
    Oh my. ;)

  5. Good Idea Robyn,
    I too have several rocks from places I've been but they are not labeled.

    Have a fantastic day!

  6. Hi Robyn, I really like this idea! We used to always get a Christmas tree ornament from each place on our travels, but I really have too many ornaments for my tree these days, so I've stopped.... This is a great idea for a remembrance... and it doesn't cost much either! TFS!

  7. What a great idea to write on the rocks! Our youngest has a rock collection and knows exactly where he got each one. Cracks me up, when he pulls one out and says "Mom, remember so and so?" Usually it jogs my memory, but not always. I'm going to give him a sharpie to record his memories on his collection. ~Ann

  8. What a neat idea, I've never thought to do something like that.

  9. I love the idea about the sharpie to mark your rock mementoes.
    I haven't been around the computer much either as i've been de-cluttering my house and it's very time consuming.
    Spring is just around the corner. Take care.

  10. Evening Robyn, love that idea, they look sweet all together, Blessings Francine.

  11. What a cool idea. I love it!
    If you get all your cleaning done...and want to head north where it's are welcome to come spring clean for me!
    Hugs :)
