Bird Bowl Mosiac

This is a first for me!  I've wanted to make this 'Bird Bowl'  ever since I saw it back in 2005 in Country Home Magazine!
 

My Stash ~ I've saved broken pottery, pieces and parts...just waiting....


For the right time....
  I did just decide to make it in shades of white with the exception of  shards of brown transferware!

I also constructed a perch for the bird from grapevine...
 
This was a really fun project..so glad I 'finally' got 'er dun!  Now I want to make more......
 
I'm linking up to Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday  Stop on over and check out all the fun things.  Aren't we bloggers just so creative?
 
 
Blessings,
Susie

  1. Hi Susie! Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and your kind comments! Did you used to do the Mount Dora show? Seems like we would have crossed paths! The new Lakewood location is nothing like the old, but after 7 years, it has a following at least. Debra is still doing Scott's show, I believe, and Cynthia I'm not sure about since they closed the exit 109 (Vienna) antique mall, where they both had spaces. Crabapple is not like it used to be either, but is gaining a new following. It is so nice to meet you on line, and I'm enjoying your blog---your mosaic bowl is fabulous!!

  2. I've been saving up things like that forever too just for the right time. Does seem messy so making a lot of them at one time would be good.
