My Mosaic Kitchen Wall...

O.K. I have been a bad blogger not uploading my pictures for etsy BUT I have finally grouted my mosaic wall that took me months of hand cutting thousands of dishes...O.K. I know I am a little loony but this is something I wanted to do for a long time and am soooo happy it is done... and so are my kids... I was going to call it Down & Grout In Ocala, but just decided to call it My Mosaic kitchen wall..inspired by my love of Birds, roses, butterflies & romantic cottage style Take a peek.. & I will get my etsy treasures posted. xooxoluara

One of my favorite treasures.. My grandmothers rose dishes...and my first piece done fiveteen years ago.. It survived my house fire.

oops look like I have some grout to clean off..

I do wish that darn hood was not there.... a bird cage would be nice of course with out the bird.

I hand wrote that last night it sounded right to me. yea relax after this was done ..

O.K. so I love birds nests... Birds nest soup anyone? Enjoy, recycle, relax & have a blessed weekend to all xooxxo mosaic momma
P.S. I usually like to coordinate my songs with my posts... but I just love this song!!!

OMG how much work was that?!!!! It looks fabulous!! What a beautiful job you did!!!! I love it, I am suffering in this heat, I haven't been blogging a lot, sorry if I missed you, I have been checking in, but I really have been kind of lazy, I am so hot!!!! You probably laugh, you must be used to the heat, I am sure I was just complaining about snow!!!!
How have you been doing? I hope your summer is good, and your son is having fun off school!!!
Take care,
Margaret B

That is just fabulous! You have out done us all. I can't believe the work that went into that wall. I always wanted to do the flagstone wall I built in my garden. So I saved broken dishes and shells for quite a while and then finally realized I wasn't going to ever get it done. So hats off to you for finishing a fabulous project...
