Just a Stone

Every December I do a craft fair with a friend - and this year I decided to try something different.
 I decided on garden markers painted on smooth stones from the beach

 Different sizes - some for large gardens - some for smaller
 And the herb garden
 Something for the winter holidays
 Add a few critters
 And critters for the garden - all the stones are from 1 1/2" to 4 1/2"

 Lady bugs to match your favorite colors

 Some pretty night scenes - nice for fairy gardens (approx 4" high)
 And fairy houses to set in your favorite fairy garden (3 to 4" tall)
 Penguin family - mama is about 4" tall - babies about 1 1/2"
 Let's sail away
 Or maybe go glamping!
Or find a quiet place in the country, near a wonderful fairy house.

Don't you think every garden needs some pretty painted stones?

I think, most definitely, every garden needs to have a few of these fun painted rocks. Soooooo many fun ideas here. Love that family of penguins!

Oh wow, these are so cute. Great idea for the garden markers. I love the adorable ladybugs. The penguin family is another favorite. Beautiful dragonfly. They are all wonderful. Happy Sunday!

Let's just say you are too artistic for your own good. My painted rocks look like the preschool class did them. I do love the night ones. All are so pretty. WOW!!!

I love your painted rocks. I repainted my large turtle a month or so ago. I have a new piece of cedar that looks like a good pedestal. I need to find another large rock that speaks to me. - Margy

These are just adorable! I wish I had some when I started my flower garden to keep track of my seeds.

These stones are wonderful, JoAnn - I love the ladybug family!

I love the lady bugs - they are so cute and for sure the fairy garden rocks would look wonderful in my fairy garden. The idea of marking the vegetable garden with painted rocks instead of having to replace wooden wooden every year is truly brilliant! Hugs, Candy

I love those ladybugs! My sister is artistic and she can take a big rock and make it look like a cabin! You have such neat lettering too! Have FUN! Hugs1

So cute! I do ladybugs with the grandkids and they are always a success because you almost can't go wrong!

These are wonderful, JoAnn! Your talent really shines. I really love what you've done. The garden labels are very sweet and the critters equally so. Well done, you!
