First Iris bloom


Yellow Iris ...




The first Iris is blooming...
I love these flowers. 
Incredibly beautiful to look at and so much fun to paint. 

Butterfly Table Top...


 
What fun was had in the creation of this mosaic...
the old oak table had seen better days, so I drew the words and butterfly in black marker pen, then beside it left containers of broken tiles in various colours, old bread and butter knives, and tile glue....
My friends and I chatted and did mosaic over coffee, the kids friends all stopped by to mosaic a bit here and there...it took months and months, but this was the end result.
This table has graced the covered deck for many years now, with wonderful memories attached.
