Making Stepping Stones

At the Whitinger Farm, we are busy making stepping stones for a walkway between our driveway and the house. It's an ambitious project and we've already made dozens of stones. By popular request, here is the tutorial on how we're making them.

I've got some shells collected all over...small and medium sizes...would you like to try them in your pavers?
It's all about choices.

Carol, thank you for that kind offer! We actually have a lot of shells, too, we just haven't tried them out in the stones yet. My big concern has been that the shells may break too easily over time.

I appreciate your offer!! Smiling
