Frosty's Fossicking Frolics

Our Rock room.

Saturday 10th March 2012
Our Rock Room comes to life.

Our 2 boys came home for their grandparents 60th wedding anniversary celebration last January and one of their comments hit a nerve. They both agreed that their bedrooms look like a shrine to them, so Marg decided that we would turn Jay's bedroom into our Rock Room. We removed the wallunit from Luke's room to Jays, and removed Jay's bed to Luke's room. It is very nice, just walking in there and looking at our pretty rocks.

The Zebra Rock and Printstone live on the floor in the family room. Most of the rocks were collected during last year's lap of Oz. We arrived home with approx 100kgs of pretty rocks. Marg has been continually polishing various rocks, but she has sold quite a bit at the school fete.
