Mosaic house

I thought  this was the coolest!  It's outside of Reading PA.  Very tastefully done...quite a feat for a Victorian house!

It's foggy out but the sun is shining here!

Latest suncatcher...tried something new with the blue background.  I like it!  Comments welcome.  This one is going to the Adirondaks with me.

Well, I just loved this photo of Markie and the purple moon mosaic suncatcher!
So, it's a New Year - time for a new goal. My former goal of a mosaic a week was derailed by neck and arm pain which turned out to be arthritis in my neck.  After many physical therapy sessions and the discovery of Anatabloc, a plant based anti-inflammatory that really works, I am back to doing as much mosaic work as time permits.  Only now, there is not as much time!  
Now, instead of an open house in April, I am thinking of a holiday open house after Thanksgiving.  So, keep it in mind, and think about bringing your gift list!
