An Elegant Do-it-Yourself Project...


...a mosaic birdbath specially crafted as a gift for the Gardener Next Door. This is really pretty! A flower pot forms the base and large pottery saucer is the basin.
The maker of the project used a special skill: while she was teaching for a year in Italy awhile back, she took a class in the art of tiling. I love the colors of the terra cotta and blue glass against the greenery and flowers of the garden. Also, I like the look of the bits of tile--like broken china dishes.

  1. Hi Barbara, This would look great in my garden. My grandchildren actually made me mosaic stepping stones for my birthday. (They are craftier than I am!)

  4. very pretty. the colours complement each other perfectly.
    it's also unusual to see the 'tiles' instead of irregular broken pieces.

Haha--another kind of mask

One of our home grown potatoes seemed to smile at me as it was readied for cook pot.
