When we travel to the Jersey Shore we usually end up collecting stones. My favorites are the reddish/pink ones. When we walk the beach we end up with a cup or so full. Last year I hadn't realized my husband had collected a "bucket" of stones from Sunset Beach and brought them home. I decided to utilize them.
Here is a frame I made for the bathroom out of a plastic framed mirror my son was going to toss out when he moved. I used tons of craft glue...what a mess!
Another of my son's items was this lamp. He had it filled with Florida shells when he was younger and into his "ocean" phase. I changed up the lampshade and filled it with Cape May stones....pretty cool...pretty heavy!
