Mermaid Rock

Many years ago I met a wonderful friend named Darlene. She lives in Canada on beautiful Vancouver Island. I met, dined and shopped with Darlene during one of my recent visits there.

Like many of us, Darlene developed a hobby during the pandemic. She started painting rocks. Rocks! Her painting got better and better and now she's terrific. I was admiring her talent when she offered to send me a rock as a gift. Of course, we both agreed it should be a mermaid rock.

Here it is. It arrived with two other painted rocks and a gorgeous pair of vintage earrings. (You'll see them soon, too.)


P.S., Darlene also rides motorcycles! She's a woman of many talents. :-)

  1. That is BEAUTIFUL! I found a painted rock while going on a walk awhile back but it's nowhere near as beautiful as this mermaid.

  3. Ally, I’m so glad you like them! It is a joy to make things for friends. I also hide them for people to find. I tend to make mermaids and keep them for myself. I have taken one out into the wild to hide and just couldn’t leave it. Enjoy!
