FAVOURITES FOR FRIDAY ... plant pots with faces

Hi there, happy Friday to you all.
This weeks favourites to share with you - plant pots with character!
I love how the plant turns into hair. It can be really tacky if not executed well,  I have come across some very tacky and ugly plant pots with faces, but the ones below are cute as well as stylish in my opinion. (Once again the links to each photo are at the bottom of the post so you can click through to find out more).

We are off to Tauranga for the weekend for a 40th which will kind of be like a college reunion, lots of people we haven't seen for 20 years, so should be interesting! The kids are having a sleepover with Granma so they are super excited.
Happy weekending everyone.

Rocks for Liam's collection

And one for mine...
Look at that perfect heart.

(Sorry about the slight fuzziness of my photos, it seems like my focus on my camera is not working all of a sudden - may be an excuse to get a new camera?! ooooh!)

He would bring the whole beach home with him if I let him. I convinced him to just choose the most very interesting rocks. He has a quite a large collection of rocks already, and his bedroom can only hold so much!
I must admit it's kind of cool when you look closely at rocks. From a distance they are just a pile of boring grey fairly shapeless forms. But up close they are all so unique. I'm always curious to know their history - were they once inside a volcano, what pressures have they been under to cause them to be the way they are, how far have they travelled?

Fossil hunting

We went on a fossil hunting expedition to one of our local beaches. Liam had been asking a lot - (he was inspired by watching these you tube videos, amazing right! If only that place was just down the road from us!). We didn't find any megalodon teeth unfortunately or any other amazing fossils, but we did crack open some really interesting rocks with quartz and crystals inside. It was really interesting looking at all the different types of rock and contemplating how they might have been formed. When you look closely it's amazing the beauty that you can discover.
