Shoulda, coulda, woulda, but didn’t take a photo of the vintage Mackinac Island souvenir dish that I used in this piece. It was a cutie. Maybe next time. 😉

The Mackinac Island mosaic tile incense holder was created using brilliant blue ceramic tile, glossy white ceramic tile, silver tapestry tile, vintage blue china, white vintage china, a vintage Mackinac Island souvenir dish, gold glass gems, red glass gems, four square iridescent blue glass feet, stick incense holder and a red glass heart.  All securely glued and grouted to to a 3/4″ thick MDF board that measures 4″ inches wide x 9″ inches long.
