Finishing What I Start

My normal mosaic tile process is selecting the base, gathering the materials, gluing them down, waiting 24 hours and grouting.

Glued: Summer of 2010
Grouted: February 3, 2011

I think life is what happened while I was making other plans.  Wonder why I waited so long, she’s beautiful.  Available on our Etsy store.

Tile tip … if  you glue the tile pieces really close together … you don’t have to grout.

Very few materials were needed … just a enormous amount of patience gluing the same color over and over and over again🙂

Love the feeling of stepping back and just gazing.

The Games People Play

Man Cave DecorWhen I created this piece, I envisioned guys in a basement (Man Cave) throwing darts.

Maybe that explains the finger hooks:-)

Strange how found objects make you feel.

This one wound up with …

  • Magnetic mosaic tiled chalkboard boasting funky finger hooks, off beat bottle caps, domino’s, dice dishes and a vintage Coke glass
    Perfect for a game room or kitchen. 29″ high x 19″ wide
  • Ready to hang

Hope it warms up soon!

Have a great day.  – Mara
