Nature’s Bling Rock Shop

When it’s cold and sleeting outside, my thoughts easily drift back to summer vacations. So today, I thought I would share a throwback post to my summer vacation in Oregon.

As you probably already know, I adore rocks. Rocks are pretty much the coolest creations on this planet. I have rocks all over my house, in my car, inside my suitcase, in my jewelry box; I even have a rock keychain! Well, while I was in Oregon, I found a super cool shop, called Nature’s Bling.

Nature’s Bling had some of the coolest things like this amethyst stalactite – or portable cave as I call it. If I were a rich woman… I would have five of these amethyst caves in my yard… or perhaps my ballroom… 🙂

Check out this huge chunk of rose quartz. I couldn’t even lift it! I find it interesting that both amethyst and rose quartz are the same type of rock, but have different minerals that change the color. Rose Quartz is pink because of the manganese it contains. Amethyst is purple due to iron impurities -and ultra violet irradiation.

Nature’s Bling is a fun rock shop, and I’d definitely recommend going the next time you are in Yachats, Oregon!

Sunset at the Oregon Coast

I just got back from my trip to the Oregon coast, and had an amazing time! It was a family reunion, and it was so nice to spend time with my family. The ocean was so beautiful, as were the sunsets. I took this picture when out with my mom one night.

Here is another shot of the gorgeous ocean, in Yachats, Oregon. I love sharing the beauty of nature. 🙂

If you haven’t been on vacation in a while, go! I really do believe that vacations help nourish and heal the soul. So take some time off, find an oasis in nature, and recharge.
