My mom and I made a bistro sized one last summer. All we did was cut up old tiles and used those flat coloured marbles and did a random pile of flesh.

We attached everything with caulk and then did the... ack whats the name, mortor stuff over top, but we didnt seal it at all and left it outside in the snow so things are starting to chip off of it, but that matches most of the stuff in the backyard anyway (my parents collected vintage and aged items). That's not the "proper" way I think, but its my way!

This is my summer project now.

I got a load of tiles and glass at a consignment store for a song, and a book titles Garden Mosaics at Jo Ann's with my 40% coupon.
What I still would like advice on is:

- nipper buying advice
- best weather-proofing advice
- any misc tips more than welcome!

Thanks  Wink

A tile store or a hardware store would be your best bet for securing those items and getting advice on weatherproofing.  I'd be willing to bet those places have all the help you'd need.

My mom and sister did one of those last year with all the old tiles from my mom's friend's pool, plus old tiles we had around our house from remodeling.  I wish I had a picture as it turned out INCREDIBLE!  Though a word of warning.  Unless it's tiny, it will be VERY HEAVY when you finish, so make sure you won't have to carry it up stairs or anything.
