my best bro sent me a digital camera!!! i'm just learning how to use it so these pix are a little test:
i mosaiced an old wooden planter from my frontporch..

the small white tiles&rosey-colored tiles were salvaged from a throw-out pile behind a local tile company. i've had a mason jar full of those clear glass globlets for several years not knowing why or what to do with them.
(now i'm starting to understand why i've been saving some of these things!) :^)

Beautiful job. Doesn't it feel great when you can recycle materials and make something that pretty?

RE: frame/planter

thankyou kind ladies.
yall inspire me.
yes this is great fun and i'm so
pleased about recycling, too.
if i keep on mosaicing, i may
actually get my house organized
someday by using up all the xtra debris
on potential mosaic projects.
today i'm smashing plates and nipping tiles.

Hang on, kat....DON'T get too carried away.....we mosaicers are NOT supposed to have organized homes or have no piles of "stuff" we have collected because we "know" we'll need/use it someday!!! LOL! P-u-lease don't let my DH get that idea!

Seriously, tho..your planter is really pretty and would look wonderful nearly anywhere! That's a really great job of placement, as well as a great grout job!
