repair bb question

Hi all,
My husband and son decided to use my mosaic bb as a door stop when carrying in my very heavy desk today. Of course they knocked it over and a couple of pieces chipped off. How do I repair this so that it will be OK outside? It is mosaiced with shell pieces and some glass globs.
Thanks for any advice.

RE: repair bb question

Repairing mosaics is so easy, fortunately, just as long as you can match the grout color. Mix up a little thinset with water, use it to re-glue any pieces that were knocked off, wait, grout that area, wait, seal, and it's done.
