Paula Light’s challenge: , “Let’s celebrate the month of lurve (aka love) by posting one thing we love every day throughout February.
weeks ago I saw this little painted rock on a railing at the train station:
I thought it was cute and I wondered what it was about, so one day I picked it up and turned it over and saw this:
I was curious about the ‘why’ , so I put it in my pocket and thought I might write about it.
I assumed FB painted on the back of the rock meant Facebook, but for some reason I didn’t latch onto that bit of info. I was, as I have been for awhile, distracted.
And then a few days ago, I found this rock ( which is shaped like an egg and about the size of an extra large one ) near my mailbox.
As you can see it has a Halloween theme and I LOVE Halloween.
So then I went on line to figure out what this was all about.
Actually I went to Facebook and I found this:
Puyallup Rocks is a Community Arts Group that Spreads Joy through the community with random acts of kindness through Art abandonment in the form of Art Rocks. Its a very simple concept, Paint a rock, Tag your rock with Puyallup Rocks (or another home group), Hide a Rock, Find a Rock, Post a Picture of your rocks (hides and finds). You can keep or re-hide the rocks you find but we ask that you keep spreading the love by painting more rocks to hide or eventually re-hiding most of the rocks you find. Puyallup Rocks is part of a Nation wide movement that is rumored to have started here in Washington, and has spread across the country like wild fire, we are even starting to see groups pop up in other countries (we love to see rocks travel) .
Well I am in LOVE with this idea.
I wish I could draw or paint but I can’t. I’m pretty awful at it. I even suck at taking pictures and the camera does most of the work.
Anyway, there’s clues about where to go look for these treasures on the Facebook page, but I can’t add to the adventure in a meaningful way, so I think I’m going to keep my eyes peeled and when I run across these nifty gifts I will give them a place of honor with my gargoyle collection.
But if you are so inclined- check it out HERE and join the fun!

So cool you found a painted rock! I’ve painted lots and left them in places for people to find. I’ve found a few other people have left too, and after posting to the local FB group, I re-hide them to pass along the good vibes. 🙂
Yoy know it really did brighten up my day!
I love this idea. I did this last year with books.. leaving books I’d written or favorite books I’d read in public places along with a note that instructed people to take them if they wished to. It was fun. I’m going to steal the rock idea. Thanks for sharing it.
There is a whole community around the rock project. It looks like so much fun. I hope you try it and let me know how it goes.
I will. It’s on my list…
