Thanks oldcrafty
Found the letters here......

I think they are an American company? Cost me a bit for postage to Aus.

They are really cool. You just snap them off. They are not very thick though.
As I was using thicker tile (wall tile) I put some thinner tile bits underneath the letters to boost the height a bit so they didn't get lost
Cheers

Totally cute!

You have flowers and even grass above the water container ... how about water plants and creatures on the pot, starting with mud on the bottom and working up.

Really LOVE that water feature! What a great job you did on the mosaic! I'd love to know what that tile is attached to? It looks like some sort of half wall or something? Did you build that too?

So darling! Did you waterproof your mosaic? If so, what did you use? Very pretty and really makes the patio look bright and cheery. And, what are "chooks"?

Hi Patty
No I didn't waterproof it. It has a covered roof above and the water does not splash on it.
And "chooks" are chickens. There are 4 of them in the picture above the mosaic.
