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.

Happy Someday.

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.

Peace of Santa

The Santa head sat in a jar, with other doll heads, until he went on to become a part of this beloved Mosaic Tile Holiday Sign created during a mosaic tile class of the past.

This peace was created with a bit of vintage china, glass gems, glass hearts, pennies and a little peace of Santa all glued and grouted on to a vintage wood sign with a hanger.

Peace of Santa is an older chap who has led a gently loved life – with some minor bumps but not bruises –  and the finished peace measures approximately 8″ inches long x 4″ wide x 1″ deep with a built-in wire hanger and black painted back. On Sale Now! 

Proceeds from this peace will be donated to a local food shelf in the North Country. Thank you.

Survivors and Casualties

The mosaic tile mirrors are still wrapped and since there is nowhere to hang them I’m going to pretend that they look exactly as they did when I packed them a year ago.  It is, what it is – at least I took photos. 😉

Unfortunately, a mosaic tile pitcher didn’t survive the move but the photos of it did so there’s that.
