The last couple of years have been slow on the mosaics front. We moved in 2009 and that was an all consuming process as we looked at over 50 houses. That didn't take the entire year, but once we got in, the last thing I wanted to do was hunker down in the basement. 2010 saw the start of my antiques business. Check out my Eccentricities blog for more information about that adventure. For the first time in a long time, I'm ready to do some mosaics. Here are the first of 2011.
Shhhhhh . . . this is elle's birthday present. A plaque that features a good sized antler and a Josh Ritter song title, "Angels on Her Shoulders". This is a fun locket and love the washed out turquoise chunk of plate.
And I did eight smaller plaques with some inspirational words. Love the antique drawer pull with the lion's face below.
A word to live by in 2011.
Nina had given me the cowboy and gun along with some small badges awhile ago and I finally used them in this plaque. Yee haw.
And a couple of small magnets. Next on the to do list are some larger heart plaques for Valentines Day. In the meantime, these small plaques will go to Stuff here in Kansas City. Happy New Year!
