Yesterday I painted rocks. I did a lot of other things too but the only thing I have to show for the day are the rocks.
My husband went to see the Alabama and Duke Football Game. And The Tide Did Roll! I watched some of it on TV. Not pretty for the Duke fans.
Anyway, I had the whole day to myself after plans for several activities fell through and so after some lunch and some shopping I watched some football and I painted rocks.
I saw the idea to paint Halloween/Fall words on rocks on a blog somewhere. Sorry to whomever I owe “idea credit”. I can’t remember where I saw them.
There are so many Halloween words out there. I ran out of rocks.
I would like to get a few more rocks so that I can include some of the words I missed like “Werewolf”, “acorn”, and “Frankenstein”.
At first I had plans to take the dog out for a walk in the woods to look for rocks. But the strange thing is that around here rocks are kind of hard to find.
So, I remembered that I had a bag of polished stones that I used in a candle arrangement once. So I took them outside and spray painted them black.
I used some white craft paint and a very thin brush to paint every possible Halloween word I could think of on them.
And here is my plate of rocks. I think they are kind of cute.
My son took one look at them and said “Why?”
