I can't wait to see yours. I am anxious to see that concrete retaining wall of yours mosaiced. I know you have that planned, right?

Slow drinks the 'ritas, her share and mine. I am a caffine gal, coffee all day. It's the water and heat in Texas I guess. She is way ahead of me...but someday I will catch up. LOL

Here's a few shots of the third column mosaiced and set in the general resting place. It needs some tweaking to get it level and I have to make a saucer for the top. There is also a pic of the large pot I am piecing back together to go on top of this one. I still need to grout and finish the topper for the tall column. It is almost done so I can then grout all of it together. I HATE TO GROUT! There I said it and it is the truth.

Dear Flag....I hope it is not too late! I LOVE TO GROUT...am I a sicko or what? But, at any rate, just invite me over and I will grout for you. Somehow I love slathering all that grout all over everything...the problem is however, I am not so fond of cleaning it off. Of course I don't hate it, but then it is like vacuuming or doing dishes....just the cleaning up part. So there you go, find someone who likes to clean off and polish the grout and you will have a merry-maid of mosaics team.

I finished this this morning and began on the mirror this afternoon. I had to stop to cut more mirror. I think a red collar and black ridges at the bottom with river rock in the grove. I am very proud of this and the save. I loved this pot and when it got broken I couldn't bring myself to throw it away. I am tickled with the way it turned out. The hardest part was trimming the Gorilla glue.
