Mornin' Peps! Here is another mosaic that I created a few months back. A neighbor from my old place gave me this junked up spool several years back. I swore I'd turn it into a table someday. I used it as an outside table for years, it sat outside in the winters, I painted it several different colors and then it sat at The Olde Farmhouse for a couple of years on the side porch. Honestly it started looking a bit rough. I toyed with the idea of throwing it away but since I tout myself as a recycler I couldn't live with that. So....a mosaic commenced. I asked my son Andrew to draw on the table top. He drew the swirl. At first we thought it would be a blast to turn it into a yellow brick road and then on the pedestal draw scenes from The Wizard Of Oz such as Emerald City. Some times I really let my imagination roam free! However, I knew I'd be refinishing my family room in sea glass colors so I decided to incorporate this table. What a BLAST to make and it works perfectly in my newly decorated family room. It sits in front of a lovely futon my older son Matthew bought me as a gift (Thank you Hon!) and it's where I sit to do a lot of my copper foiling these days. After I share another of my mosaics I'll be reveling in my favorite mosaic artist in AN ARTIST I ADMIRE! (from afar) Moral of the story....try not to look at your stuff as junk. It may be trash to some but a diamond in the rough to others. Keep it out of our landfills at all costs! (please pretty please) With Gratitude, Laurie B.
