The other day I was in a store and I found myself drawn to a jar of rocks. I thought this is really cool. I love the way this looks. I just couldn’t buy a jar of rocks though. I have jars at home and I was sure I could find some rocks. I’m not really a Pinterest project person. Crafts aren’t a strength of mine but I figured I could handle a rock jar.
I’ve never really been a collector of anything but I love the idea of having my house decorated with items from the environment around me. I’ve never gone hunting for rocks or sea glass before. Thankfully I live next to Lake Superior and that seemed like a good place to start the hunt for my homemade rock jar.
My husband, son and I had a morning free so we headed to our favorite beach Wisconsin Point and spent the morning rock hunting. Hubby and I rock hunted, my son was quickly lured into the lake to do some swimming.
It turned out to be a really fun family activity. And we had some good luck. We found blue, green and clear sea glass and an agate among the other pretty rocks and pebbles we collected.
We got a decent start on my rock jar and had a great time making some family memories! I threw in this last picture just because it is so beautiful!
