Creative Saturday

Yesterday, I was in a mood to have something new to decorate with, so, I found a few items around the house and went to work. Natural always does it for me, and I had some rocks in a pot outside, decided to decorate them with a little paint. They are prettier irl than in the photo, and they are smaller irl. Some other rocks I decoupaged to sit on my desk and remind me to be thankful, forgiving, loving, etc.



I needed "one" more server to find a place to store, which space is something I don't have. Using a cheap glass plate and a candleholder, it turned out quite nice. I used this as a test; I have an old plate from my grandma that I wanted to do this with, but want to test the glue first.


On another note, I want to share a couple of my beautiful zinnias...

Beautiful flowers and I love the rocks! They remind of 2 heart shaped worry stones that I just bought yesterday. I felt like I need the feel of the natural stress reliever. Very stressed lately.

Hi Sixpence,

Love your sweet and creative rocks, especially the heart and all the lovely notes you have written.
Such a great idea.
Also how clever making the neat platter.
