Mosaic Flower Pots: Check
SEVERAL weeks ago, the owner of the garden center called to ask me to make more mosaic flower pots. She provides me withe terracotta base and I make what seems good to me. Except this time, she wanted me to make a second black pot to match one I had made months ago and another extra large 4 season pot since the other one sold a while ago. With all that has gone on around here, I was really having a hard time getting into making these, but I finally forced myself to sit down and start on Wednesday afternoon. By Friday afternoon, I was able to grout them all, which is the part of the process when I slice my hands to ribbons. I must admit that this batch was harder to part with, especially the four season one, which was made of as much glass as china. But when I carried them into the shop, they all stopped and gasped...always a nice way to enter a room! I'm being sure to put these up on the blog mostly so that if I ever need to reference them again, I have a pictorial record!
And also, just a heads up that if you are interested in a mosaic for a Christmas gift, be sure to let me know. I can do custom work, and mosaics make great mom and mother-in-law gifts!
