A Decorative Frog Stone

An easy way to add a little character or a focal point to an area of your garden is to add something like this frog stone.

I purchased this for approximately $23 in Brown County at a Nashville, Indiana shop called Through the Looking Glass, where they chisel and sand-blast decorative stones.

When it rains, the stone naturally darkens and the frog shape holds water.

    I love that frog! Adorable! I will have to see if they have an online store. :)

      I know, and they have so many things like that. I have another smaller stone with a sandblasted gecco (sp?). I think it was $13, maybe a little more, but somewhere in that ballpark.

      I’m not sure if they’re online. If you live in Indiana, you REALLY need to stop by their shop. If you don’t live in Indiana, maybe you could tell them what you like and they could email some photos and ship something to you. Here’s a link about their shop:

    Drove from Chicago to Brown County last weekend to do some leaf-peeping and “discovered” many more incredible stone carvings and etchings by Mary Ann and Tom.

    I suspect they don’t have an online store. Because if they did, the shipping costs would be out of sight. We bought a large, tall stone etched with a coneflower design. It weighs over 70 lbs.!

      That’s a l..o..n..g drive from Chicago, but the colorful leaves and all the Brown County/Nashville shops are definitely worth the trip. Brown County, Indiana is so beautiful this time of year. I’m so pleased to hear you stopped at Mary Ann and Tom’s shop. They are so nice, and, as you saw for yourself, EXTREMELY talented in their artistic work. It sounds like a beautiful etched stone you took home to Chicago. Had you heard of them or their shop before?

    Prior to stumbling upon Tom and Mary Ann and Thru the Looking Glass, I had never heard of them. Truth be told, I’d never heard of Brown County either! My brother mentioned it at a family dinner one Sunday. “You should go,” he said. “I think you’d like it.” Well, he was wrong…I didn’t like it…I LOVED IT!
