Yesterday I Painted Rocks

   Rocks 024  

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?”

You need to turn it around on them now, Lisa, and say, "Well, if I have to explain why, you just don't get it". : ) I can just imagine him telling his friends that his Mom paints rocks. I think they look cool. They'd probably look pretty in a bowl, too.

What a fun idea ~ you could do lots of things with those Halloween goodies.

Football ... stayed up until 11:45pm just so I could see MSU win. I'm paying the price now! :)

They are so cute. I think they would be good to give out to children who are trick or treating with some sweets :).

Oh how cute! I love message stones. I always bought them for my children whenever I saw some. You should paint, "Why?" on a rock and give it to your son!

Very cute, will you leave them on the plate or scatter them around the house or garden?

Laurie said...

I love the rocks! What a perfect thing to do while watching the game... My son would probably say the same thing!

Chelsea said...

I love them! My grandma has been painting rocks for years and is always looking for new ideas, I'll have to pass these along! Also, I love the black table the rocks are sitting on!

Very sweet rocks! And men/boys will never get it, will they? LOL

Melanie said...

I love E! He sounds just like my son:). I think that the rocks are really cute and you have the patience of job!

I think your rocks are fabulous - your son's response is priceless, my hubby would totally say the same thing!
