Mosaic Monday - Pinks & Purples

Debbie from Mountain Breaths has convinced me to try my hand with a mosaic! This is something started with Mary@Little Red House, so stop by her blog and check out all the great mosaics!




As you can see, I made my 'garden helper' Louis as the centerpiece of the Mosaic. He excels at curling up where he can get in the way and then proceeds to watch every little move I make. It was like he was daring me to want the terra cotta pot he had plopped himself in...

Love my pinks and purples in the spring months, we'll have to wait and see what other colors I have for the summer... Stay tuned!

Barb, I love your pinks and purples, but most of all I adore Louis. And yes, he should be the "center" of attention! Thanks for joining me for Mosiac Monday. I am truly loving this!

Barb, the pink and purples are gorgeous. Louis is a great centerpiece for the mosaic.

Do you think he would have tolerated a pink or purple ribbon around his neck? :)
