Mosaic Monday

My creation

oday is Mosaic Monday, and Mary from Little Red House, is hosting this lovely day.

My creationI have known Celeste from Celestina Marie Designs since I began blogging three years ago. I admire her beautiful painting and love visiting her blog to see what she has decorated next.


My creationRecently she had a giveaway, and I won. I love pretty things and sometimes even when I am in the middle of creating I will glance over and love all the pretty things together.

My creationI placed Celeste's lovely packages on the table where I was working, so that I could photograph the packages before I unwrapped them.

My creationWhen I opened up the first one, I was so thrilled. I love the way Celeste paints roses, especially pink ones. Now I have one and I can't wait to find the perfect frame.

My creation

inspiration tagI opened up the next package to discover the perfect book. Delight in The Details by Lisa M. Pace. Here is the link to the book, if you would like to have a peek inside. Every page is filled with wonderful creative ideas.

My creationThank you Celeste, I love my beautiful pink rose and this new book will be the source of much inspiration.

My creation

My creationCeleste paints furniture, ceramics, canvases and even ornaments for the White House. I think she can paint on anything, perhaps she could even...Paint The Sky With Stars, just like the lyrics seranade. Wishing you a wonderful Mosaic Monday.

Celeste does do beautiful work, and how lucky that you won such lovely things! The book looks very interesting, it isn't one I have heard of but I would love to see inside:>) Have a great week Karen!

Celeste is very talented indeed. It's no surprise that you have found one another in Blogland. Your mosaics are always uniquely delightful, never pedestrian.

Hi Karen,
Oh I love our mosaics and thrilled to be apart of your creating. It was a joy to have you participate and win. I am so blessed by your words and kindness. You have been a kindred spirit from the start and I will always treasure our friendship.
Thank you for being a inspiring part of what makes blogging for me so special.

Loved being apart of your Mosaic Monday.
Enjoy and have a great week.

Big Hugs, Celestina Marie

Karen, this is a world that is so refined and mellow. Your home is notches above my own, but no matter....your style is professional in quality and you have the right resources to create the MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS! BRAVO and thank you for this lovely post and imagery! Anita

Oh dearest, what a joy to see your comment! Yes, let's pretend that this IS FRANCE...I do it all the time chez moi; my little stone cottage is our French get-away in Minneapolis. I am so fortunate as well to work with dear French people who I just think the world of. I have a fab colleague who is just elegant, ornery at the same time, witty and kind and the best teacher. Her and I love to dance in the hallways, she laughs with me and she even has dark features like me; she is from Nice. So, I live and love my French dreams always. Thank you for coming to indulge in my blue heaven. Don't you just love that blue budgie? :)
