A permanent marker would do the job on the rock and everyone in the world ever has a permanent marker lying around their house. You usually find out when you write a note on a sheet of paper, the ink seeps through the paper and stains your lovely table underneath. Ruddy things. Ink WON’T seep through rock though so you’re safe.

Vases

No one needs fancy crystal or vintage cut glass vases. These photos  a) are lovely and b) show you that using bits you find around your house can be equally as effective, cheaper and, in my opinion, look a whole lot cooler  than buying new fancy shmancy pots to put your wedding or party flowers in…..
