If there is any trend I am crazy over right now it is this one: decorating with semi-precious stones.
I love this idea from 29 Rue House- she framed her agate slices.
We were up in North Carolina for the weekend and I was hoping to find myself some kind of geode slice while we were there. But I didn't get to do the shopping I'd hoped to, and the one store I did go to didn't have anything as big as what I'm looking for. But there are a lot of places to buy at least the thin slices online, so I really don't need to find them in an actual store.
As a kid I had TONS of semi-precious stones, and even a bunch of fools gold that I found in a river in Colorado. But at some point as I got older I got rid of it all because I felt like I'd grown too old for a "rock collection". If only I'd known how in style they'd all become someday.
