Window Shopping Wednesday

3 Apr

Well today in my virtual window shopping I got a bit distracted, it was more crafty than true shopping.

I’ve got a bit of a ‘thing’ for collecting shells and pebbles from places I visit. In fact more of a shells and pebble obsession.

I currently display them in various rooms in jars, on shelves and ledges.

(These are currently in the craft room… Excuse the shelving unit that needs a makeover)

These slates are from Galloway, Scotland and were once roof tiles now used as our coasters in the kitchen.

(Again another item in our house that needs a make over the little bargain table ~ Mr S liked it in wood though so a little more persuasion needed)

This shell was from the dinner of an illusive Otter while on holiday on Eilean Shona, Scotland.

Anyway you have the idea lots of stones and shells in our house.

So while window shopping today I had brought to my attention something I did as a little girl … Paint stones and shells.
Today has drawn me to look into others obsessions with pebbles & shells and what else other than painting can be done with them; people have whole Pinterest boards.

People crochet them…

People paint them still…

I like these motif designs on them…

I’ve also had my own inspiration of adding Gold leaf or Natural Dying them.
Lots and lots to think about.

In addition to pebbles today Purlbee caught my eye with this delightful Sheepy!

Felted Bunny (Rabbits another obsession)

I also had a bit of an Etsy trawl and found this calendar .

I like the idea for the craft room it would a great size to doodle on and use embellishments such as washi tape stamps and stickers on.

So that’s all for Window Shopping Wednesday this week a quiet first week back after the last couple of Wednesdays off.
