Labors of Love, Art & Earth

My first mosaic, finished!!

My first mosaic, finished!!

I took advantage of the beautiful weather last night, (cooler with no humidity) to spray a couple coats of sealant on my table. 

My husband made the comment (teasing as he does), “The flower isn’t centered.” 

 I came back (in my mind) with, “Neither are you.” 

 I didn’t do any measuring, I just freehanded and stuck stuff into adhesive.  All I know is this.  I was very centered when I made it and that’s all that matters!


I had to wait an hour for the sealant to dry, before I could re-apply.  I was already coated in bug spray, so I thought I might as well enjoy the weather and our deck.  I’m really getting into this book.  It’s an old book, like 1970’s but it actually seems timeless, like it could’ve been written yesterday.  I love it so far.

Then, I had a thought.  I had this book in my hand when I got pulled aside at the airport on our last trip  and searched.  Probably not the best book to carry on an airplane, but who knows.  Perhaps it didn’t have anything to do with it. 

Check out that great tomato from our garden!

My Photo Mosaic

This was kind of fun…..and time consuming!  What you do is this.  Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr search, use only the first page of photo results.  Choose your favorite photo, then copy and paste the URL into the mosaic maker.  Use 3 columns and 4 rows.   

my mosaic by you.

 1) What is your first name?

2) What is your favorite food?

3)What high school did you attend?

4) What is your favorite color?

5) Who is your celebrity crush?

6) Favorite drink?

7) Dream vacation?

8) Favorite dessert?

9) What do you want to be when you grow up?

10) What do you love most in life?

11) One word to describe you.

12) Your Flickr name.

That last one was tricky.  Nothing came up for my Flickr screen name.  So, I chose another Kirsten.  Blythe dolls rock!
