I'm really into pebbles! In fact, my pocket garden is covered with it and so are my plant boxes. I don't know but it really brings me closer to nature and I find it a very versatile tool in home decorations. Pebbles are my favorite subject for all my DIY's at home. That's why the moment I saw this improvised under liner for hot plates, I felt ecstatic! With it's simplicity and uniqueness, I will definitely make one for my kitchen. I have another idea, too. I will also make use of it as a center piece and will put some nice potted plant on it.
I think I'm going to ask my son to start collecting pebbles for me. A sack will do for the meantime. :) I will make a list of my favorite DIY's that I will be doing back home on my next vacation. It will surely keep me occupied!
