Today I was thinking about how much I love the Petoskey stone. They were always a fun discovery on the shores of the lake where I grew up in northern Michigan. I've never really taken the time to have them tumbled in order to display their makeup and true beauty. Next time I make it to the lake, I want to make sure and grab some of these beauties and maybe go through the trouble of getting them tumbled and shined! I love being surrounded by special things that remind me of things I love. I can't wait to have some gorgeous little Petoskey stones that I can use to decorate our place.
I came across this photo at Ken Scott Photography... check him out.
While looking up a little more info about the amazing stones, I also came across some history of how Petoskey, Michigan got its name. Interesting! I want to learn more about the past of the area where I grew up. Northern Michigan is full of history and great stories... just waiting to be discovered.
Check out this wikipedia article about the Petoskey stone.
I can't wait to get back to the lake, find me a Petoskey stone, and hold a little piece of history in my hands again!
