Latest Mosaic Madness

I haven't been working as hard on the mosaics as I usually do, but I did manage to put together a few things this week.

I got the Ma and Pa salt and pepper shakers last weekend at the River Market Antique Mall and I couldn't wait to put them into something. I thought a black and white picture frame would be the perfect place.

Ma looks like she could have used some sunscreen in her youth.

Pa forgot his dentures. I do a lot of antique mall and thrift store shopping and I've never seen anything quite like Ma and Pa.

I got the letter opener several weeks ago at the Mission Road Antique Mall.

A vintage pattern finishes off the back.

I made this little magnet for the annual Chick Bingo Night at Laura's. I think I've been for the last seven years and I would not miss it!

I squeezed in a few switch plates, of course. I'm not sure these bright colors will induce sleep as the switch plate suggests.

I love this "G" and was anxious to use it.

Look closely at this one and you'll see some tiny chef beads.

Not much in my house is orange and turquoise, but I love the color combination.

You cannot have enough dice, if you ask me.

I used some plastic vintage farm animals in a switch plate I did for my friend, Barbara, lately, and I used them again here for this double plate. The switch plates were delivered to Stuff (www.pursuegoodstuff.com) earlier this week and the frame just may find it's way onto Etsy soon.
