to get back to work on my mosaic projects......
A wild visitor broke one of my favorite tea cups...........
you can read more about this on my country blog
and I decided to create a mosaic tea cup from the broken pieces and I was even able to incorporate the teacup handle as well.
This is a plant dish that I actually made from cement
It has a flat surface for the mosaic and has these little wiggly feet for the bottom so that the dish stands up off of the ground.
And now instead of plain and dull cement, it has a pretty and decorative surface.
don't you think?
Since I had all of my mosaic supplies out, I decided to finish my first piece that I have posted about a while back. It is also a planter dish made from terra cotta
and I placed some of my most loved pieces of broken china into it.
and it is very pretty holding my plants..........don't you think?
Another one of my cement creations is this fish and I usually use them as stepping stones for my pond path
but I decided to use some decorative glass rocks for the body,
and broken china for it's top fin
and for it's gills.
I used the broken scalloped edges of plates for it's tail
I wanted the face to still have a more 'fish look" and just painted it and placed a glass rock for the eye.
Now it lies in my garden making it whimsical and cheery.
How about you?
What little things do you like to add to your gardens?
A scarecrow..........or maybe whimsical figurines?
I would love to hear!
