Busy In My Craft Room

I have been busy in my craft room making some Mosaic creations for my Etsy Store.  This is a stool I painted pink, gave it a antique look then covered the top with broken china plates. 

This is a wooden garden tool tote.  I painted it pink and covered it with broken china plates, glass tiles, gems, etc.
I made a dragon fly on one side and a butterfly image on the other side out of hand cut glass. I used glass black beads for the dragonfly's eyes.
The back has a china plate in a heart image and the rest is broken china plates, glass tiles and some gems
On the front I made a pink rose and leaves out of clay

I hand cut all my china pieces and I search garage sales and Goodwill for .50 cent china plates!!

I am joining Ms Beverly at How Sweet the Sound today for Pink Saturday!

My February Winter Garden and I finally have Eggs!

The weather has been really nice here in Southern California lately.   Some of my spring flowers are blooming.  In 2 weeks there is a wedding reception in my garden so I hope the weather stays nice and no cold spells to kill my flowers!

This is an area by my driveway when you first drive into our yard. There are a variety of daisies, daffodils, chrysanthemums, coreopsis, stocks, pansies, primroses and cyclamens
My Primroses come back every year
On the other side of the driveway lining it I have about 6 of these pretty pink daisy bushes
I have an abundance of these Alstroemeria flowers.  They make great picked flowers in a vase on the table
I finally have eggs!!  My sweet Geraldine a Leghorn White Hen is the one that gives me a egg just about every day!  Now I am waiting on the other 9 hens to start laying eggs.

This is my favorite, its name is Susie, a white silkie.  I named it after my pet rabbit when I was a little girl.  I am so disappointed because Susie turns out to be a Rooster.  A boy named Sue?
I swore I was going to get rid of all the roosters but look at this cute fuzzy bottom....snort!
