i was struck with inspiration this week when i saw these beautiful painted stones by Natasha Newton (click the links to see her paintings, they are actually A-mazing)

Natasha's stones reminded me of something i have been meaning to make for my mummy ... and timing couldn't be better with mother's day right around the corner! a while ago, my mum had seen what she called a 'chatty rock' in someone's garden and said she wanted one ... so i made her this (pictured above) a bossy little rock that on one side says 'turn me over' and the other says 'ahh, that's better!' 
aren't i a nice daughter ey ...


  1. Your mum will be delighted with this, I'm sure! It's so beautiful. And in turn, you may have inspired *me* to make some slightly more detailed stones as well. :)

    By the way, what did you use to paint your stone? I'm using white acrylic ink with a coat of matt acrylic varnish over the top.
