Welcome To Stones In The Sand Garden


In the Japanese Zen garden beautifully raked sand and carefully selected and placed stones and objects create a peaceful place for quiet meditation.
Creating a personal shrine or altar is in many ways just like that process. Selecting objects that have meaning to you and assembling them in a manner that pleases you. A personal shrine can fit in your pocket, hang on your wall, sit on a table, be permanent or temporary, and can be created inside or outside.

Thank You For Visiting Stones In The Sand Garden

Rosary\Prayer Box

After 7+ hours work (play) this is what the previous little jewelry box looks like transformed as Rosary\Prayer box.  Old book pages,  misc parts and pieces, a little silver dish and my favorite crow images with accents of silver and turquoise.  This box is ready to hold a set of treasured Prayer\Rosary beads or anything else.

Art Box

I've started some new art-rosary boxes and as always am on a quest for more boxes!  Seems like you can never have enough, and finding them is half the fun.  I might go weeks poking around yard sales and garage sale without finding any at all and then all of a sudden they pop up everywhere. This was a very basic little jewelry box but it will turn into something wonderful.

I was kayaking off Willow Beach AZ this last Sunday, such an incredible river- clear cold water below the Hoover Dam, the current is not too strong and the weather is hot now.  Finding inspiration in places like this is easy.  Relax, balance, paddle and enjoy the views and sunshine.  Perfect.
