Storytelling Sunday 3 ~ Pebbles

The first Sunday of September falls on the first day of the month this year. There is something nice and neat about that. I’m joining up with Sian at From High in the Sky and all the other tellers of tales. Big and small. The tales not the tellers.

Mine is of the small kind this month. The objects and their story. These three pebbles sit stacked on my kitchen window sill. They were collected from the beach at Broadchurch West Bay. I’ll look at them, when I’m standing at the sink washing dishes, in the coming months, and remember all the fun we had this Summer.

It’s not quite over yet. We’re off Gromit hunting again today. I’ll be looking forward to reading a few more stories this evening, when I get home.

I love beaches, so I can imagine how you love to look at those pebbles. And wish you were back at the seaside collecting more!

What a lovely association - it's great to have reminders of the really good times you have.

Oh always pick up pebbles form beaches - I have them in my garden though, not my kitchen. So glad to hear you are "Gromitting" again - have a great day. Jen x

Oh how fun that Gromit hunting looks (had to go look it up) and I like the idea of the pebbles being there to remind you. I have some on my patio for just that purpose :)

They look lovely stacked up like that. I like reminders of summers past. Enjoy the hunting today.

Small suits me perfectly! Down to the ground, in fact, you could almost say :) I think this is lovely. I hope you have a Grand Day out Gromitting and bring back something good to remember it by too. Thanks Fiona

Beautiful simple reminder of the summer. I try to collect pebbles and shells from where we go too x

I love stacks of stones. I picked up two tiny ones on the shores of Lake Michigan in August and have them on my dresser. I'm hoping to add to them later.

Sandra said...

Yes, you'll be smiling each time you see them :)

It is always lovely to have a little reminder of the summer close at hand.

Beautiful. So serene. I love collecting sea stones when I can't find sea glass or shells.

Great reminder of happy times. I have some from Cornwall in my bathroom for a similar reason.

It's a pretty stack that will make you think of warm days at the shore throughout the chill of winter!

I am a big fan of stacked rocks too, and I saved three small ones from our trip to the ocean and took them to work to have on my desk. So fun to have some from your summer holiday! :o)

Jane said...

I'm another one who loves pebbles x

Sometimes the simplest souvenirs of our outings are the best, aren't they.
