Curious Pebble Project

At the San Marcos Art Walk yesterday I came across a gal named Julianna who was crocheting covers, or sweaters if you will, for stones. They are the cutest little things. One that really caught my eye was made with a motif of a tree. Julianna told me about her Curious Pebble Project where she randomly leaves her pebbles on the beach. Then people can go on her site and write about how they found it. Julianna's also has an Etsy shop where one can purchase her crochet covered stones. Sweet.
