Stash3

I have learned some things about choosing mosaic candidates -- perhaps they're only my personal preferences. The large cake plate in the back is not the greatest -- sparse pattern and lots of white, though I think the handles might be really cool in a design. The red one is super -- strong color and design and an all-over pattern. Most of the dishes I choose have a problem -- they're chipped, cracked or broken; however, my local thrift shop sells dishes for pennies (usually a dime, sometimes a quarter) and if I find something I like, I'll buy it (no matter the condition, but they're usually chipped), and I have no hesitation in breaking a saucer in perfect condition if it doesn't have a cup.
