Fearless Friday, Pelican Stone


Things are moving along on the outdoor kitchen, and they started covering the base with stone earlier this week





“Hey, what do you think this piece of stone looks like?” asked HHjr





“Don’t you think it looks just like a pelican?” he exclaimed





“Yes! When they sleep on the pier they sort of fold up into a big pillow of feathers!” I agreed

“You should paint it…” he suggested





“Sure, might be cute…”





This pelican will likely migrate to the coast to join his cousins…just a silly little stone, but a fun memory of the outdoor kitchen build and a reminder of how much we love the beach!


Sometimes it’s fun to paint on a different kind of canvas!

Keep your eyes open  for new things to transform!

Be Fearless!

    I find a lot of joy in serendipitous things like your adorable pelican. He’ll always be a neat reminder of the kitchen project. Be sure to date it….time slips away, and we easily forget the years of what we think are the most memorable things!

    Well, of course I just love it!!! I have been wanting to paint a pelican on a rock for a while now. Never seem to get around to it.

    HHJr has your eye for all things art! It absolutely looks like a pelican and it will always bring back the time you build your outdoor fireplace and pizza oven. I think it will be a great addition for your beach house. Love how you painted it Jenna……………

  18. I love the pelican and the sweet sentiment behind it. You have a wonderful son and I know there will be some creative dishes from your outside kitchen.
