When Life Gives You Lemons......



Several weeks ago I was co-hosting a baby shower with my friend Pam. We were using my Grandma Scott's old china and one of the plates was accidentally broken. It happens, no need to cry over spilled milk or broken plates. I must admit the first thing that popped into my head was " Oh I'll use it for a mosaic project that I've been wanting to do". That is after I comforted my friend who felt awful about breaking it. I'll go out and buy pretty plates to use for mosaics, but I can never bring myself to purposely break them!!! So here was the perfect opportunity. I've had this old cheese cover just waiting to use it for this project! I sanded it and painted it pink to match the china. Now this is my first mosaic and I didn't do the best job. But practice makes perfect and I have another old cheese cover, if someone wants to come over and a break some of my china? Just kidding!!!! So when Life Gives you Lemons........Mosaic!!!!
