Summer Mosaics

This summer I decided to do a couple projects for myself....Yay!
We have a paver stone patio on the side of the's where the cool mosaic table is that I blogged about previously. 

I saw this done on brick pavers in a book some years ago, and that's how long I've been planning to do it.

I replaced three random pavers in the patio this summer...

Each is it's own unique little piece of art... 

I'll probably do a couple more next summer, but I don't want it to get too busy out there.

My other summer mosaic project was my kitchen window sill, also on my to do list for a couple of years!
(don't look at the wall...paint is next!)

Oh, if you're new here you may not know...I love color!
...and texture!
I made two rocks and a cool fossil part of the mosaic...
I sat on the edge with my feet in the sink for three days...owe my back!

Then I had to cover some of  it up with my stuff...
I love my stuff...
I have quite alot of it!

So, these were my summer projects for me.
Of course I made stuff for other people, and for my shop.
Check it out...

...and please feel free to leave a comment!

  1. I love the beautiful mosaics. Doing a mosaic with some of my leftover glass was on my list too. Guess it moved to my winter list now.
    What a great window sill. Definitely worth sitting in the sink for a few days;-)

  2. that's a great place for mosaics and they are just beautiful!! I tiled some windowsills in my art studio a few studios ago--but more utilitarian than your creation, but done because I have so many plants in pots and the wood was getting wrecked, lol!

  3. Janet i am inspired! My sister in law bought me a mosaic kit last year & i haven't been brave enough to use it yet. I love the window sill, beautiful.
