Hi everyone well I Have been working on mosaics again getting ready for the show I mentioned ,it is Dec 5-6 in Boerne if any of you can come I'd love to meet you..Anyway these birdhouses are huge they are 20" tall and the mexican one is also 15 " wide very heavy. they are made from terracotta and a rare find..to be honest I hate to part with them as I may never find them again..I bought all they had left at the time..I am thinking dark grey grout to make them pop more ,what do you think? The beach spa I will do in a sand color tho.The pictures are in the beginning of my photobucket,when they are grouted???When? I'll send a pic of finished products......

well darn they've changed the way photobucket used to work so maybe someone else can tell me why it won't right.

Works fine. CRACK: I love every single one of them. Want to know where you get those wonderful opaque green glass pieces, and the tiles that are in the doors of the houses, especially the green ones. The pink one is sooo closely mosaiced - the black/white/green one is very strinking also. You have really been busy. W/be anxiously awaiting seeing these grouted - don't envy you. I forced myself yesterday to grout the second planter I made for my Fantasy Fence. Don't feel like trying to haul it out to the swing area today - just planted two Confederate Roses. Soooooo glad you're back - don't stay away that long again, girlie. Beautiful work as always. BTW - did you ever finish your Riana head planter?
