How many mosaics in your house ?

I'm just wondering how many mosaics (that you made ) in your house ? ( you can include your yard ) And of course -- how many stained glass pieces ?

Go count them. I'll wait...

Dum de dumm dumm da ...
doo de doo doo da ...

Are you back now ? Geeze , you're fast ! How many mosaics and / or stained glass pieces ( made by you ) did you count ?

The reason I asked is ..... I had a conversation in the stained glass store today with a lady . After telling her my backround , she remarked --

"OOOOoooohhh - your house must be so beautiful , filled with all your glass projects ! "

HA ! I have exactly 3 mosaic pieces & 2 stained glass items.All these years ,I've been making and selling things and never keeping anything for myself. Honestly ,my house is bare !

Now - I'm finally doing things for myself. I don't care who comes over and admires my stuff & offers to buy it -- it's all mine now. When I start something new ,
Dh always asks " where would you put it ?" I've seen houses that every wall was solid family pictures. I think I'm going to do that. Every bare space is going to be filled with my projects !

Oh YIKES -- I got off topic yakking about myself. Sorry !

Okay --- Spill it --- how many things did you count ?

Okay, I have about 20 pieces; that's over a 12-year period, that's how many I kept. I have sold lots and given away a few. There were some things that I sold that I wish I hadn't, and I plan to be more selective in the future and keep the best!

RE: How many mosaics in your house ?

Every corner and all the walls are covered in art of some kind, many of my mosaics. The gardens are becoming crowded too. I've given away many and sold quite a few. Wish I had the ones I sold back, but where would I put them? I never tire of looking at the things I've made. I give many home/garden tours, but don't have the nerve to put a little box out asking for donations for my time. I'm just proud of my work and enjoy doing it.

Slow, the one thing that bothers me is the blues guitar is gone. It had so many one-of-a-kind pieces, I can do one that is similar but I can't repeat it exactly. That is what I plan to do next, a blues guitar somewhat like the one that is gone. I have been collecting pieces here and there for it. Slow, you open your home and garden for tours, you definitely SHOULD put out a box for donations! You can use the $ to buy more stuff! I have been working on butterflies lately; finished two framed butterfly wall hangings and a pitcher and I am working on a 12"x12" butterfly on mesh for a donation.

I would pay to see your house and gardens, Slow... AND TO MEET YOU!

I think there are 12 mosaics on display here in my hse, a couple more outside. If I had my way I would fill my hse too but I would have to be a single woman 1st! lol

100's of stained glass items from suncatchs to a 6ft tall fountain, but only 5 mosaics.

Please post pictures on the other side, SCORELINE. We'd love to see your works.

RE: How many mosaics in your house ?

I have a couple pieces of my own that are favorites, but most of the mosaic pieces I own are purchased pieces or even better-things Ive gotten in exchanges and as gifts. They are so special and delight me every day.
