The Saturday Market in Calistoga

This summer has kicked into high gear at the Farmer’s Market. Many of you have found your way to the YOUR SPIRIT ROCKS! ™ stand to purchase a rock or pendant for a friend or loved one. Lately, the designs have become more sophisticated. Stacked rocks, Animal talismans, Ancient Symbols and a whole new assortment of different sizes. No two rocks are alike, which makes it fun to watch as you take your time to pick a rock that is to your liking. It is amazing to watch a smile break out across someone’s face as the right choice is made.

So I thank all of you for visiting the Calistoga Farmer’s Market on these beautiful Napa Valley mornings. I wish you all an overflowing of loving kindness and a joyous summer of abundant fun.

Pendants !

Now it seems like eons ago, but somehow I got the idea to drill holes in the Spirit Rocks to make pendants out of them. This proved to be a very labor intensive, time consuming proposition. Each hole took me about a half-hour to drill with a hand drill. Then two out of five of these rocks would crack and break. Great. Well, after visiting a craft shop in Guerneville, I discovered a handy little mount that adheres to the back of the rock with a loop, so that they can be hung from a lanyard or necklace. These are nice little show pieces that are eye-catchers for sure. I like wearing one, just to hear the nice compliments I get from people.
