Shabby Mosaic Lazy Susan

I am almost finished with this and just wanted to share. Isn't that really what blogging is all about? Sharing our passions and getting inspired. For me, that is what it's all about. So, I found this not so pretty looking lazy susan which had these great curvy glass holders that were perfect for serving snacks. The minute I saw it i just knew it had BIG "please mosaic me" potential.

I painted it my favorite ballet pink and gave it a shabby mosaic makeover. Not completely finished yet, got a little side tracked watching the Emmy's. How does that happen? I next to never watch tv...time waster when there is so much more that I'd rather be doing. I should have been grouting but no, got sucked into the pre Emmy interviews and next thing ya know... there's always tomorrow! Here it is with the design laid out and then taped off to grout. Well at least I taped it off and took some pics and even blogged about it. I am not a complete slacker. Doesn't it look so much prettier already?

Flea Market Finds

Great day at the flea market today...perfect weather and more importantly great finds! Take a look...

 My arms were breaking by the time I made it back to the car. So glad I had my canvas bag with me to carry the dishes. You know you are hooked on flea markets when you bring your own bag. Soon I'll be one of those people who brings a metal cart. Don't laugh, I've had my eyes open for one!!!

Repurposed Mosaic Window


 I had this old window laying around just waiting to be repurposed and given a new life. I changed out the old glass and replaced it with mirror. I added some vintage porcelain and glass door knobs that can function as coat holders. And naturally added a mosaic touch.
