More than a Pebble

I love surprises!! My friend Jeanne (a.k.a. Harlan) has a such a good heart. I recently purchased the Extremely Expensive Cat Toy Kit from her Etsy shop. Included with my order was this amazing beauty of a rock!

Rock with a square heartTo give you an idea of its size, I photographed it with one of my scrabble tile pendants. Can you see the reddish square? I like to think of it has a little red square heart. ๐Ÿ˜€ Geology is amazing! (I know I said that in the last post, but it’s so true!)

I don’t know if Jeanne meant for this rock to be included in the One Pebble Project, but it certainly is now. Thank you so much, Jeanne! I’ll be sending you an ACEO this week!

**Reminder: September 1st is the deadline for sending pebbles. This is the last year to get your free ACEO!

Pebbles from the Treasured State

Montana Pebbles

As the end of the One Pebble Project approaches each new delivery is a cherished gift. The latest pebbles to arrive journeyed all the way from Montana! I apologize for the bland photograph taken from myย iPhoneย (my camera is traveling in Costa Rica with my brother). What you can’t see well are the crystals jutting from the pebble on the left. Geology is amazing! These pebbles remind me of some of the rocks in Yellowstone (only a 3 hour drive SE).

Huge thank you’s to Linda, a wonderful quilt/fiber artist I’ve had the pleasure of working with and getting to know. Do take a minute to check out her shop on Etsy.

Linda, your ACEO will be in the mail this week!!

From the Shores of the Coeur d’Alene

Coeur d’Alene is a lake in northwest Idaho, spanning 25 miles, and now I have a little piece of its beauty!

Coeur d'Alene PebbleWOW!!!

Since this is a lake pebble I thought it only right to take some photos when it was wet too:

Gorgeous, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜€ I received this lovely pebble from Sarah at Cottage Garden Studios. She creates the most magical drawings in pen and ink, and colored pencil. And now I own one of her magical works of art! Sarah send me my very own ATC!

Dragon ATC by Cottage Garden StudiosSarah didn’t know at the time, but my Chinese birth sign is the dragon. I LOVE it! Thank you so much, Sarah! Your ATC will be on its way to you soon!!

Watercolor Pebble Bookmarks

Watercolor Beach Pebble Bookmark

I don’t always paint pebbles from life. Sometimes I like to let my imagination have free reign. I like to watch the water and paint flow, creating something out of nothing. These watercolor bookmarks were painted in such a way, with a free mind. This bookmark and others can be found in my Etsy shop – Nature’s Charms.

Pebble Bookmarks on EtsyPebble Bookmarks on EtsyIf you send me a pebble, and comment on this post, I’ll include a watercolor bookmark with your free ACEO!!
