There is nothing more soothing than water flowing over pebbles as this photograph by Lori Hinrichsen shows. (You can see more of her work in her etsy shop chasing stillness.) That of course is the first thing that comes to mind but there are so many creative people out there giving a new look to pebblesI saved these a while ago and have forgotten where I found them, but aren't they fascinating!This one speaks for itself and can be found here.
I know felt pebbles aren't anything new, but I just love the way the hardness of the stones is so successfully translated into the softness of the felt.
I found these on etsy at makeyourpresentsfelt!
