Mirrors and matte white pottery
A vintage teapot I covered with mosaic and bits.

Vintage buttons and hand-painted plates.

left you a few bloggy ideas on PRH. I mentioned the dahlias again. Just can't get enough of those beauties (I know, you've had enough). Do you have more pics of the mosaics you've made? I'm very interested because you always do just somthing a litte special and over the top with all your creations.

Hi Karen, your favorite things are all so lovely! I can't even pick a favorite, but those blingy buttons with the pink centers are truly awesome!!

How are your hanging hooks holding up? I thought that was such a great tip!

Love you,
