I used some florist wire to tie them at the top and then added a ribbon and a bell. Simple but look quite effective.
Its quite cold out but thankfully not a lot of wind so 'don your hat and gloves and jump into the car I will take you down for a walk at the Port to prepare for my next project. Take some deep breaths and clear your lungs, the beauty is quite breath taking.
Here I am, looking for the perfect stones. Some are better than others and if you look a little closer it can be quite surprising.
As the sun shows its face through the clouds its glows on the ever moving sea giving dappled shadows onto the tidal flow.
Not a lot of wind so the waves were quite gentle and not the usual thrashing against the harbour wall or surrounding rocks. The perfect day for collecting a few rocks. Although always mindful of the sea and the damage it can do.
Shall I give you a clue...
I will share the project in my next post.
As always I thank you for your support, your encouragement and friendship.
See you soon.
Tease! Is it maybe the project you mentioned in an email to me? If so I am really looking forward to seeing it.ReplyDelete
You certainly live in a beautiful place.
And those decorations with bells on - brilliant! Super mini treat for children.
It's always lovely to see your photographs of the sea. I can almost smell the salty air and it looks like you had great fun searching for rocks.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing the results of your new project. X
Wow, what a beautiful wild landscape ! Love that !ReplyDelete
I think I know what you are doing with the pebbles you transform them ! I collected pebbles and transformed them into cats. They sold very well on our exhibition better than the paintings !
We used to visit Scotland a lot for holidays :) I love the sea, so I would always want to live by the sea. I'm looking forward to your next post :) JaneReplyDelete
Thankyou for taking us on the walk, I was imagining the sound of the waves and the cold air, lovely! A lovely walk is good for the soul. Is it on the Christmas theme with the stones I wonder?ReplyDelete
So nice to be out walking to see the sea and waves when it is not hot. Looking forward to your stone painting.ReplyDelete
What a lovely day by the sea. You have so many creative ideas.ReplyDelete
That was lovely. Thank you! I've got a guess for the rocks so we'll see if I'm even sort of close - I doubt I will be!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos. Can't wait to see what you'll being doing with the rocks.ReplyDelete
I enjoyed the beach walk, thanks.ReplyDelete
Ohhhhhh, your walk, along the sea!!! Oh how wonderful! How very, very lucky you are, to live, where you can easily do this!!!ReplyDelete
We have to drive for miles, and miles, and miles, to reach the ocean. And we just don't drive like that, anymore. We miss it so much. Especially at a Full Moon time!
Oh seeing the Full Moon rise, over the ocean! Do you do this, sometimes?
I love the scenery, happy Halloween!ReplyDelete

Looking forward to seeing the finished project. Love seeing your pictures of the ocean. For us it is a four day drive to get to the sea!ReplyDelete
Fabulous idea and so much better than the overpriced tree sweets, I love your bouquet from your previous post too, just amazing. looking forward to this next idea, the sea walk was beautiful. xReplyDelete
Thank you for the walk. It was lovely and I didnt get out of breath! I echo one of your other commentors I once did painted pebbles and they all sold! Children love to do them when I have an open studio too. Cant wait to see what you create!ReplyDelete
Your walk looks so beautiful and what a fab ideas with the christmas tree sweets xxxReplyDelete
Such a beautiful and wild place where you live. I love the sea photos. I'm curious what you'll make of those rocks! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
I'm not much at crafts but I'm going to steal your idea of tulle wrapped Chocolates. The grands can have fun helping me. Maybe we should tie them onto the tree!ReplyDelete
I'm so curious what you plan on doing with the painted rocks!!!
I love all of your walks along the beach. The sea calls to me and I always enjoy your photos be they wild and stormy or calm like today.ReplyDelete
It will be fun to see what you do with the rocks. I love to find smooth ones by the ocean and then crochet around them for paperweights or doorstops, depending on the size.
I'm always up for chalk painting anything so can't wait to see how you finish those up! By the way, if you have the inclination...could you do a post sometime on looking back at your decision to uproot yourselves and follow your dream of moving to the seaside that you love? My husband and I are considering doing just that thing, and I could use some words of advice from someone who has done it. I'll take the good and bad if you're so inclined to share it.ReplyDelete
This is going to be interesting! Your walk on the beach looking for rocks must’ve been exhilarating, which is the nice way of saying it had to be cold out there!ReplyDelete
Wow! you got all the perfect stones for painting!ReplyDelete
What a lovely beach to gather stones for your next project. I'm always impressed to see the boats there at low tide. Happy painting! ♥ReplyDelete
You live in a beautiful place. It does look cold, but so clear. You're teasing us with those white-topped stones!ReplyDelete
What beauty surrounds you! Your pictures of the sea and the clouds are amazing. Now, I am looking forward to seeing how these rocks turn out. :~)ReplyDelete
Oh, this is clever. Wrapping up treats as little gifts so you are not tempted to nibble them. I'm totally doing that.ReplyDelete
A beautiful autumn day down by the shore. Looking forward to seeing your next project.ReplyDelete
Your walk was spectacular! Thanks for sharing it and your creative projects, the beautifully wrapped celebrations, and the painted rocks in process :) xxReplyDelete
What a delightful walk, so wonderful that you can walk right down to the sea and enjoy the beauty there! Thank you for sharing the delights with us! Such a clever project you have created with those rocks, I am so inspired by it! It is amazing to see so many sizes and shapes of rocks, colors, designs and formations. Blessings and hugs :)ReplyDelete
Definitely not umbrella, suntans and bikini style beaches, thank goodness. Bracing and beautiful, I thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Thank you!ReplyDelete
How wonderful to be able to take a walk along your local beach to gather stones for your project! Enjoy creating some lovely Christmas gifts for your family and friends.ReplyDelete
