My husband and I have been thinking of doing something like this. We are always bringing home rocks and pieces of "stuff". I also saw a patio in a magazine where the owner/creater had embedded flat, steel weights from an old weight lifting set within the flagstones. I also do mosaic. Do you have any tips for using various peices in a walk or patio?

There is an outdoor shopping "village" where I used to live up north and it is quite pleasant. For their walkways they embedded all sorts of objects in the drying cement. Everything from clock parts, a half-pair of scissors, old tools (wrenches, pliers), marbles, cogs, etc. - and it must be less fragile than it looks, because hundreds of people walk over it everyday and it still looks great after almost five years - including Michigan winters.
