Whimsical mermaid stones.

I recently discovered the whimsical art of McCabe of Dancing Mermaid and after viewing her Etsy shop, I knew I had to have some of her lovely painted stones. I needed herb markers for my garden so I asked if she would paint some for me. I received them today, and they are so lovely! They are perfectly charming, colorful, and unique!

She even included a lovely scented votive candle and 3 extra inspirational stones. The words could not have been more perfect...

I'm not sure where I'm going to put them yet...any ideas? Perhaps lay them in a bed of sand in a glass bowl? Or add them to another flowerpot in my garden?

To me, they are little treasures. Others have supported me as an artist, and I know that this quote is true...

“Throughout the world sounds one long cry from the heart of the artist:
Give me the chance to do my very best.”
