These are the first mosaics I have made with the intent of keeping them for myself. Every other mosaic I've made was for selling or giving. Over all I'm pleased with the outcome, and have these checked off my list of TBM (to be mosaiced). ~: )

Mosaics are such a release, you should try them. Of all the arts I have done in my life, I truly lose myself in doing mosaic.

These are beautiful. Now I feel guilty about all of the broken china I keep collecting, but not using. You have given me new impetus to finish my mosaics! I love the colour scheme.
And your garden looks lush!

HSG...you have such an eye for COLOR!  You are one talented artiste!

Your gardens are lovely, also.  I love a cottage-y garden like that.  Just gorgeous.

Every time I grout, I end up with a CUT.  Usually a BAD one, so I tell my friends/family that every piece of my mosaics has a little "piece of me" in them..ya, BLOOD.

Smiley

Congrats, darling, on a job well done.  Your mosaics always inspire me!

Thank you Karen for the compliments on my work. When I am cutting the glass is when I get teh cuts, but grouting I have not cut myself. Course using the dry grout method makes for nice smooth cover, too.

Thanks for checking the trio out. Smiley
