Mosaic Monday

The top left picture is my cat, Huggy Bear, enjoying the backyard. Top right is a blooming orchid cactus. The bottom pictures are jacaranda trees and Japanese wax leaf.

I wanted to thank Mary at Little Red House for hostessing Mosaic Monday. Please click on the link to visit her blog and check out all of the really cool mosaics! :O)


Metamorphosis Monday, Blue Monday and Thrifty Treasures

My hubby found this wonderful weathered rocking chair and rusty, chippy metal side table out by the curb. The rocker had a broken foot, which he replaced with some scrap wood from the garage. And I opened one of my cans of recycled paint and gave it a light coat, since the rest of the rocker is weathered. I paired the weathered pieces with one of my favorite blue vases that belonged to my grandmother. The white lily of the Nile flowers I picked from my yard. I set everything up under our jacaranda tree, I love the purple flowers.
