Yesterday Kirsty and I went down to the beach to look for interesting stones to paint and add to the collection that sits outside our house.
Sometimes a stone just asks to be turned into something - the shape immediately tells you what it should become.
Kirsty spotted this piece of slate and immediately knew that it just had to become a penguin!
She was originally going to make this one into the sea with a bit of harbour wall, but opted for a field and cottage instead.
I found this ghost shaped stone so we then had to scour the beach for a Pacman!
I have a bit of a thing for painting sheep!
This is one that Kirsty painted last year. It has a lump on the back, just like the B button on a Wii remote, which is what inspired her to paint it!
Recently a French customer came into my shop carrying one of the stones and was really disappointed when I told her they weren't for sale!
