200th Post - New Mosaic Project

I almost missed announcing my 200th Post! I only realized tonight I'm at Post 202. Ironically the big number was on Sunday's post the day I was announcing my Giveaway Winner. Thank you to my lovely blogging circle of friends for staying with me as I've shared a bit of my circle of life. And in like I've met so many wonderful ladies who have shared with me, with us all and I have learned so much.

*********************************************************************************

I have been breaking china like mad and them adhesiving (is that even a word?) those little
pieces onto wooden trays and silver trays and tonight a birdhouse. The first project wasn't so
much fun because it was rather scarey. The second one I enjoyed a little more but was this really for me? I've made yet another project and I am so loving this. Someone told me I was going to get addicted. I did. HOLD on to your china ladies I may be sneaking by checking out yours.

This is the birdhouse I started working on tonight and I have a lot more to do to complete it. It is amazing how the china takes on the character of the piece...or is it vice versa. It begins to look different... now did I mean the china or the birdhouse? It'll be fun to see how it is once I'm done.

I hope you have a fun day today... Judi xoxo

Hi Judi! Oh, your birdhouse is looking so pretty! I'll bet this is fun although I think I'd have a hard time breaking the china! :)
Be a sweetie,

Hi Judi,
This birdhouse already looks awesome.
What colour grout will you use?
Looking forward to seeing the finished piece of art.

STEP AWAY FROM THE CHINA:) Lovely birdhouse and you are becoming addicted I do believe. Wonderful creations with broken china, go figure. Hugs from Georgia!

Thank you for leaving me your kind comments. :o) What colour Grout Anna was asking for this project? Great! That brings me to what I'd been thinking about.

I have only used white so far. Its neutral and it will take a while to get through the box and I didn't know how far I'd go with this project ;o)

Maybe green would be good...or pink? or blue for another day? It would be nice if the grout boxes came in smaller sizes...

That is going to be just so darling. Love your work with the china. I was able to read your email better, boy, that is a process. You are really doing well with it. I'm so impressed. Darlene and I have never met. We only live about an hour apart and plan on meeting. How's the weather? My MD son has about 48 inches. So far still has power but is worried about the roof. Take care and thanks for caring about my eye troubles--I'm better. YEA!! M
