Hello there!  Grin

My Mom brought home a ugly thing that was probably supposed to be one of those folky wooden calenders from the thrift store. (No offense to folky calendars. lol) Anyways, she is also a clerk at a mosaic/tile company, they make very expensive products so their waste is HUGE, they don't use anything with even a TINY imperfection (I know well cause I worked there for two summers doing glass/kiln checking). She brought home a few boxes a year or two ago.

I used a fleur-de-lis not because I have any particular obsession for quebec or france, but just because I like it, lol. I suppose the theme my mum is going for is 'french country' really losely though. haha.

I didn't take any before, but it was pretty basic, wooden and all scrated, and lots of glass mosaic tile rejects.

Ah awesome. Thanks for saying it was a fleur de lis I didn't get that at first =P
But that's cool, and Jess, tell your mom to bring home some reject tiles for me! That would be cool  Grin

Great way to "upcycle" . . . and I must admit I'm envious that you get "reject" mosaic tiles. Crafter's heaven, lol.

I love this idea! I just got into mosaic with glass pieces, so I'm really tempted to do something like this!
