More painted stones...and Stuff????

This is my Thoroughly Modern Millie paperweight, though that is not what she is used for , she's either in the garden amongst other stones or with other painted stones on the window ledge
Theres a couple more that sometimes keep her company





I enjoy painting stones, they're cheap, cheerful and quick to do. Great for rainy days, but really I have plenty I should be doing......

Sorting these few boxes that found their way down from the loft...stuff I've not seen for years...gosh the memories come flooding back, it doesn't take alot does it.

Some of these may find their way into my shop in the ''Odds & Sods'' section ;-) but its very difficult to know what to keep and what to get rid of...I know I've not seen most of it for years and not missed it but now its back awww shucks!!!!


and there's more......



and there is still so much more in the loft, but I told OH not to even think about bringing it down yet as it is all starting to take over .....

The problem is they are all small bits & pieces and tend to make the place look cluttered thats why I think they were put up there in the first place....Well I intend to sort them this weekend and probably will as OH is home and he gives me the kick up the arse I need ...otherwise I'd be here all day !!!!!!!!

Thanks for the kind comments...I use any paint I have to hand ....it could be emulsion, acrylics, childrens paints Ive even used food colouring to get a shade I want...and yes I do varnish as with the assortments of paints I use I think they need the extra protection lol xxx

Wonderful works Lajoni, I was going to ask about the paint...my mum has a big painted stone she uses as a doorstop. What do you do with yours? Are they functional or just beautiful? X

The stones are just decorative LG or have sometimes been used outside as paperweights when reading the paper ;-)
I don't know about treasures or yummies...most of my things have been stuck back together or are chipped lol
