So first my little obssession and collecting started out with rings, then just plain ol' jewellery in general...now it's turned a whole new avenue that includes stones!! What the heck!? I honestly don't know what is happening to me!! I've never been a collector of anything before really!! Except maybe sandals... But, truthfully, I am really liking it (obviously, why else would I be obssessed with doing it!? hehe). It must give me some sort of purpose. Now that I think about it, it's just like shopping I guess, hehe. The thrill and the pretties.
Currently I've realized that I like to see my collections grow. I am proud of them. I like to display them...somewhere high enough though where baby girl can't get at them; but she loves them too and kisses each ring I wear when she sees them on my fingers, haha.
And so I've recently purchased my first 4 stones...I have no idea what I'll do with these stones besides stare at them in awe, LOL! And keep them on a pretty plate so I could do just that. But, ohhh, lately I am having HUUUGE crushes on moukite, Morgan Hill Poppy jasper (!!!), laguna agate, turquoise (which I have yet to buy) and just really different stones with bursts of wild colour or ever-wicked patterns on them! As you may be able to tell from my first ever purchases below...

Oh, and I should mention that I purchased a book called The Crystal Bible as well...I have yet to crack it open but the concept of crystals and stones and healing and feelings really intrigues me.
