The Rock Shop

Oldladyofthehills, Here is a series of photos from the rock shop. You expressed an interest in seeing more, so here it is. I hope you like them!

Yes, it is good to feel better! You sound like you HATE being ill as much as I do. I am not very good at accepting long term illnesses in ...
"Oh, that is just a part of life", philosophy! I can be a real long term B----, about it!

It does rain a lot here in Oregon, as you mentioned. The weather girl made a joke about it on the TV Oregon weather report. She said that, "A lot of people that moved here recently were moving back to where they came from because of our Oregon rain". But she said, "We Oregonians love it here"! Which is true of-course, of any state in the US to live, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else but Oregon. Gene Kelly would have loved it here. He could have sung his heart out here. LOL!

Speaking of Oregon Rain... have you tried the new bottled water (comes in a blue bottle... Lars Larson hocks it on his radio show) the water is supposed to be actual oregon rain water collected in like cisterns. its pretty good.

Great Great stuff at the shop!!!
We used to have a shop very much like this down here on Melrose Ave. (It may still be there)..I LOVED going in and visiting and sometimes buying things...

I have a good friend who lives in Portland and he LOVES living there and LOVES ALL THAT RAIN!
I think I might not survive all that gloom...and wet! (lol)
It's wonderful that you love it so...
Hope you continue to feel better and better...And thanks for showing ALL these wonderful photographs of the Rock Store!
I really appreciate it very very much!

I have to look up Margaret Munro....I don't know her!

Just went to IMDB.com and looked her up...I don't think I have seen any of the films that she made...the entire Disney years went right by me...
Here is a link to her Bio on Imdb.


You probably know all this already..but I found it very interesting and terribly sad, too...!

Nice set of rock photos! I particularly like the green one on the left. I just love that colour as well as orange.

It's been drizzling here too for the past few days. I hate both the cold and rain - makes me feel so depressed!

Mr Sun, where are ya!

Hello faira. I hopped from Jellyfish's blog, love yours and decided to stay. You seem to be high on rocks lately. They look very lovely. Are they equally health beneficial?

You have such an eye for beauty. The pictures of these gems are so beautiful and you can feel the sparkle from them.
I try to keep myself from things I can't afford, because I break down quite easily and can talk myself into every reason why I MUST have at least one. It's called Conners Logic and it really does make sense.
What a WONDERFUL shop and display!!!

Wow, I'll take one of each, but someone else will have to buy them for me! I'd love to visit that place.

We had a small "gem & mineral festival" here at the park near my house a few months back. People come from around and display their stuff in hopes of selling or trading and they had a lot of the amethist rocks, but not quite as big as those! Also, they didn't have any gems as beautiful as the ones in this picture!

We go to see Of the 2,000-plus minerals that form good crystals, most never produce large ones. These beautiful tiny yellow crystals are Wulfenite. They are quite perfect, the color is vivid, and the artistry of the composition exquisite. From the gem and mineral collection of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History
Quartz crystal can be used by scientists as a tool for finding other mineral deposits such as petroleum. Quartz crystals also have ornamental value as gemstones. Quartz constitutes 12 percent of the Earth's crust and is used in countless products from computers and watches to satellites and medical equipment. Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History.
It;s nice to see you blogging,Thanks for the pictures

Hi Faira,

I have some collection of crystals at home too. They are very expensive here. You can see a lot in Taiwan and is much cheaper there.
