I admit it, I love rocks. I have loved rocks ever since I was a little girl. I would collect rocks and keep them in a box under my bed. I really love anything that is of nature and not man made. Rocks, seashells, limbs of trees and driftwood. I will sometime share some of my Grandmothers collection of driftwood. You will not beleive it.
I went to an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. They had listed old books and that was my main attraction. When I got there placed thru out the sale were rocks. Most were not so special, but the blue one jumped right in my hands. Yes really!!! I love blue and rocks and I beleive the rock knew that. There were many rooms in the house and as I carried my blue rock around I looked thru some books and other items around the house. Then what caught my eye was the match to the blue rock I was carrying. The blue rock in my hand started shaking. Yes really!!! When I picked up it's match it stopped. They were together again. Nothing was priced and I had asked the lady in the first room how much the rocks were. She said $2.00 each. So I was able to reunite these two for $4.00. Don't you just love "LOVE" stories like that.
I did find some old books I liked and I bought quite a few for $2.00 each. But my true love was the blue rock bookends. Here they are in their new home. Together at last!!!
