In a small bowl that sits quietly on a shelf in our home, rests little things that we have picked off the ground and brought home with us over the years:

A large shell and sections of red coral that Hiro found in Zanzibar in 2006.
A rusty screw that I picked up on a diamond mine in South Africa.
Chunks of lapis and amazonite that I took from my father's garden.
A pine cone found near Eastbourne.
A sloping tile that we found amid abandoned bathhouses in Japan.
A piece of pretty blue pottery found by lake Biwa in Japan
A slither of stone found in Brighton
2 tiny striking shells that a friend brought back from New Zealand.


  1. Well there we go! I've seen people's rock collections before but never such a mixed bunch. The red coral is quite something, so is the lapis. isn't that stuff quite pricey? Good on you. Funnily enough I have a rock from Brighton.

  2. What intriguing and wonderful treasures. I must admit that I have rarely picked anything up off the ground on my travels since I was very little, but I am going to excuse myself for that by saying that nothing I have ever walked past to date has been so lovely or intriguing as these pieces. Particularly the coral!

  3. I can't even explain how much I love this post :)

  4. You pick up such pretty things on the ground. All I see are cigarette butts ;).

  5. I might've said it before, but I'll say it again - you guys have the loveliest collection of things. :)
