My sister had this mosaic tray on display when I visited last weekend, so I took a quick photo. I made this for her a couple of years ago, part of her "creme brulee" Christmas package -- complete with torch! The idea was that she'd serve her delectable French dessert on this fleur de lis tray -- quite fitting, non? It was an unfinished tray that I purchased at Hobby Lobby, I believe; I hadn't done such a small project before, and now know that I prefer them larger. ; )
Yesterday, I saw the most delightful, mosaic patio table -- in the most delightful backyard I've had chance to stumble into recently -- oh, there was the cutest "garden shed" with big windows and french doors -- let's not even talk about the actual house... Anyway, it was so creative and inspiring. The table was rectangular and quite big -- probably sat six comfortably, though a few more could easily squeeze in. It had a fairly wide, border of wood and was made mostly from rectangular tiles. At each "place," looking an awful lot like a placemat, was a small iron grate all grouted in and looking almost lacey. Gorgeous!
I need more time to do all the things I want to do!!!
I'm going to be up and at 'em early and out of touch for most of today and tomorrow. Thank goodness I somehow have another four-day weekend.
