I have a thing for crockery- I come home from garage sales and auctions with random plates or a single cup because the pattern makes me happy and I end up stashing it in my hutch to admire as I walk by.

A couple of months ago I came across a FB page called Mango Mosaics, she makes these AMAZING mosaics using recycled crockery and I knew I just had to try it.

I have never made a mosaic before but it came together pretty quickly (1 day) and I love how it turned out, I will definitely be making more. Now I can enjoy my crockery everyday Smiley

I made a 4 foot sign for the end of our driveway which made use of an old iron peg already present in the tree. Nice and heavy so it will stand up to the wicked winds we get here.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

WOWZERS! You really have done yourself proud with your first foray into mosaic! And I love that you used the odd pieces of crockery that you couldn't resist.
