and this one is for Riley.
I have done other mosaics in the past for the garden, too. It's such an enjoyable craft and once I get started I want to do more and more. You can see my welcome stone here. Another garden stone here (a blue one). A yellow mosaic birdhouse here. And a mosaic bird bath here.
I made this garden stone red for Riley because when he was just a pup the breeder painted his toe nail red so she could tell the pups apart. There were six in the liter, Otis included and he had his toe nail painted purple. So ever since then we always bought Riley red collars, red leashes and red sweaters.
He was always red. And so, the red garden stone.
