Blue Ridge Memories

I mentioned not too long ago that we found a neat way to remember our wonderful Blue Ridge vacation.  Souvenirs can take up a big portion of a vacation budget, and since ours was limited to begin with, we needed to be creative.  My kiddos loved collecting the colorful rocks from the Toccoa river.  We also went to a gem mining place where they were able to mine some gorgeous stones.  So, to display our keepsakes I went to Kirklands.  They had this great vase? candleholder?...not real sure what to call it. We put all of our rocks inside and lit the tealight and it turned out beautiful!  The kids love it when we light the candle and talk about our memories of our vacation.  And the good news?  It cost about $7!
