Here's My Heart- Part One~

As we prepare to celebrate the most romantic day of the year~ {and one of my personal favorites} I thought I would share a few photos of my heart stone collection.
It started many years ago while walking along a stretch of beach in New Hampshire.
I glanced down and there was this almost perfect heart shaped stone.
It only takes one or two and you're hooked. You look everywhere. While hiking, walking on the beach, when out for your daily walk or run.

Some of my stones have been gifts from friends.
I treasure them all.

My collection led to all things heart-shaped. Rocks, paperweights, carved hearts, leather hearts.
Each one tells a little story of a special holiday, a vacation, a walk with a dear friend, a weekend away, the south shore.
I'm looking for a clever, space-saver way of displaying them.
Any thoughts or ideas?
I would love to hear about a special collection and how you got started.

  1. I shall now look for one of these heart stones.
    They would be pretty on a wall, or in a garden.

  2. We do that too!! My daughter found a heartshaped stone two years ago and since then we have been colleting them. You do have a lot more than we though :-))Have a great day Debra, XXX, C.

  3. I do not have any clever ideas about displaying them other than in a glass paperweight. I like your collection!

  4. I love your collection Debra and so perfect with Valentine's Day nearly upon us. I have a friend who collects round rocks so when I am out and about I am always on the look out for those...I will search for your hearts now too, xv.

  5. What a beautiful collection! I'm going to start looking for my own heart shaped stones now. So lovely and organic. I think they would be sweet grouped as you have them on a table or low bookshelf. Somewhere they can be admired by visitors. XO

  6. A heart shaped stone found me one day. It was sitting between my house and my neighbor Joan's. It is now on my kitchen counter sitting in a half shell. I love this little stone and it is my only heart stone. Now you have inspired me to look carefully for more! I have no idea how to display them other than in a big glass bowl or pretty glass jar. I think your collection is just adorable! xoxo

  7. These are so beautiful. I've never thought of them but I'm now going to be on the look out. I don't have a display idea though. Sorry.

  8. Great collection Debra, I have never seen the heart shaped rocks before. You have such a good eye!

  9. Debra,
    I have a small collection of stones that I just adore ....but no hearts...I shall be on the lookout. Thank you for this lovely post and I think I may gift myself with the book!
    I like the idea of displaying them in a large shallow bowl where they can be handled by admirers.

  10. You have a lovely collection of heart rocks...I also love to collect them and am always on the lookout whenever I take walks on the beach. Isn't it an amazing feeling when one suddenly reveals itself among all the other rocks!

  11. I love your collection! I have never seen this before, but now I am now going to be on the lookout for these for sure! I plan on enlisting my children on this delightful hunt as well. Thanks.

  12. What a fun little hobby. Usually my kids and I like to look for "sea glass". I will keep my eyes open for hearts now.

  13. I collect heart stones, too. I tend to tuck them into unexpected places around the house so that people discover them when they're least expecting to.

    Your collection is just beautiful. my friend. xo

  14. I love these, Debra - what a neat collection! Have a great wknd.! xo
