soft stones


Down by the river, there are piles of stones. Beautiful smooth, stones in the most wonderful colours. Quite a few of them have found their way back to our house and now adorn various corners of the house (coffee table, desk, bathrooms etc). Inspired by these beautiful stones, a rather talented English lady, who by my good luck just happens to live down the road from me, decided to work her magic hands by skillfully felting these stones to create soft, seamless versions of the originals (hidden beneath). I could wax lyrical about the many talents of this lovely girl, and I probably will on this blog, as she does have a knack of coming up with the most beautiful, simple creations. Her birds, for instance - that's another story I'm just waiting to write about. If she lets me, one day I will even try to capture her own personal style by snapping a photo of her as she's cycling through the village or just standing in the crowd - she always looks nothing less than fabulous. Visit her own delightful blog SalcottRoad for a peek at her wonderful collection of creations.
