Years ago I decided to make my own stepping stones. I collect old keys and clock parts ( along with many other funky things) and thought I would incorporate these little treasures into my stones. I uncovered these remaining stones when I cleaned out a flower bed recently. I still love them and am thinking of making some new ones. I have a "time" theme going on in some of my gardens. Little sayings written on other stepping stones, on chair seats and signs on my porches. With all the "re-purposing" happening in the creative world today, I am sure you will think of ways to make your own unique steppers. If you look closely, you will see a penny. I always included a penny in my stones, not for "luck" but as a sign of providence, blessing and Grace. I have made many other steppers from all sorts of funky objects. They are fun to make and I just know you will have a grand time finding your own treasures to seal in your steps of time.
Time worn steps of time.
Time worn steps of time.
Time is the key.
Time is the key.

    This is such a neat idea, Zee! I could work with my grand girls to collect special items to embed in the stepping stones. Thanks!
