The Beat Goes On

The purple Van Gogh tile was in a bag with a favorite iridescent tile, a vintage ballerina and a couple of switch plate covers. Inspired me to start gluing again but not grouting.

35 Pieces and Ball Chain

It only took 35 pieces – of this and that – to create one of my favorite mosaic tile light switch covers.  I used a hard plastic double light switch cover, an antique rhinestone brooch, purple iridescent tile, purple beads, black and white Millefori, a clear glass gem, silver tile and silver ball chain. light switch cover

Glued the brooch and purple iridescent tile border first, then glued the rest and let it dry before gluing the ball chain around the edges.

After the glue dried, I used a charcoal grout to make it  pop! Chaz loves it!  Me too but …

Bubbes Brooch – SOLD

I’ve come to terms with the fact that this piece and many others – from my private stash – have to be sold since all of my light switches, walls and floors are already covered. Less is more unless you need a groovy new light switch cover.

THROW BACK THURSDAY another blast from the past … 

The antique cupboard was loaded to the brim with vintage glass objects waiting and wanting.

My goal was three glass on glass windows by month’s end.
