Gems

1/23/2013



When I was in first grade, we had to evacuate our home because of a fire (our house was saved, others weren't so lucky). My parents grabbed all of our important papers, family photos, and valuables - I grabbed my rock collection. I was sure that once we sliced those babies open, beautiful gem stones would be revealed. I was wrong. I think I may have to pick up the gemstone magnet set, wine stopper, or gorgeous blue agate stone candle holder from BrooklynThread to satisfy by inner five-year-old.

Cute magnet set! I'm obsessed with anything druzy right now. I love Dara Ettinger's jewelry!

I love those magnets. That's awful about your neighborhood when you were little, but I love how you grabbed your rock collection!

Aw, what a difficult scenario your family went through! However, it is cute that your rock collection was top priority. There was a jail break in my hometown at around the same age, and I was very concerned that the escaped criminals would steal my stuffed animal collection. A child's perception of value is interesting!
