Blue Mosaic Monday




I am linking up with 2 wonderful blog parties. First we have the Blue party hosted by Sally at Smiling Sally.

The second is a Mosaic party hosted by Mary at Little Red House

Please stop by both of these great blogs and say Hi!

This is a serving bowl/tray (?) thing. LOL I picked it up at a resale shop that I have talked about before. It was the most expensive thing I bought that day! It was a whopping $1.89. I have no idea how old this piece is but, it has some major crazing. Which by the way, I love. Does anyone else love that or am I just the oddball?



Just a cool effect. Yes, Diann is playing LOL

I think I am the only one who proudly includes a picture of my price tags in mosaics! LOL What can I say? I'm just.....hummmm...what's the word I'm looking for?....Special! That's it! I'm special.

  3. You are special, indeed, Diann. I like your blues, and I especially like that blue dish. I have a similarly shaped blue dish on top of my husband's chest to hold his change and keys. Thanks for sharing, and Happy Blue Monday!

  5. You are special! And that's a good thing. I love the deep blue of the whatever dish that can be used in several different ways. Enjoy your great find. Clever arrangement on the mosaic.
    Happy BLUE/MOSAIC Monday ;-)

  6. Neat dish. Wonderful find! Thrifty is always good. Although I did buy a front grill from a 1950's Jeep at a garage sale the other day for a Christmas present but now I'm thinking .... ummm.... what was I thinking ?!?

  10. I love the crazing on old pieces too...it ages a piece for me. And the price tag in your mosaic...it just helps to show how thrifty you are!

  11. Hi Diann,
    I like your new acquisition (such a nifty word!) This plate is a great shape and the pattern has good composition (very designer ~ish term!) Thank you for following my site, because now I can stalk yours, lol! My entire life I’ve been a DIY kind of gal. When I was younger I did it for the fun and the challenge, but later realized how much better it was for our environment. I lived overseas and flying back and forth gained an understanding it’s a small world after all.

  14. This is a nice piece and it represents BM very well. I like going to resale shops too. You never know what type of treasure you're going to find.

    Please join me in chasing fun with my son for Blue Monday!

  17. Well yes you are special! I rarely take off a price tag if you aren't going to see it...ie the bottom of dishes. I can't tell you how many times it has come in handy when someone asks where did you find that?
    Thanks for visiting....I see you use coupons...my husband is the coupon KING!

  25. That dish was a wonderful bargain, Diane! I'm never lucky to find nice things like that at a throfty sale. Loved the photo effects!

  26. Good Morning, Diann... loved the mosaics. I need to learn to do those. I think it would be fun to make patterns out of pictures. Loved what you did with the special effects.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday...

  29. Love your looks here! The blue dish is so pretty. Oh, isn't it wonderful we can play like that? I could stay on the puter all day. Who needs clean clothes or home cooked meals? :)

  30. Lol...you definitely are special! Thanks for sharing. That's lovely. I could have used that plate for my pumpkin bread I baked this weekend. I just realized I don't have anything bread shaped to serve it in or display it.

    Does that make me sad? Nope, it makes me happy because now I have an excuse to go thrifting...lol.

    Have a blessed Week!

  34. Lovely blues ... kewl effect on that second photo and marvelous mosaic too! I love to multi-task like this myself. Of course, I love mosaics so much that I tend to go overboard on Mondays and post on all three blogs ... just because. Thanks for visiting mine at Happily Retired Gal and hope you're having a delightful day.
    Hugs and blessings,
