Little Pink Pitcher Mosaic

I found this cute little blush pink pitcher on one of my shopping journeys to the various thrift stores and couldn't resist buying it. I just loved the rose bud at the handle and thought it would be a perfect size to do a small mosaic.

This was a fun piece to do but ended up being a lot more work than you might imagine. Getting those tiles to fit around the handle took a bit of patience, but I managed to get it done.

I wanted to keep the scene light and airy so I stayed with the same color scheme as the pitcher except for the blue and white checked "table" it's sitting on.  The rich blue gives some contrast without being to brash, I think. 

I must get some better photos before I list this one. The glare from the camera flash is bouncing off the tiles.  The pink in here is also a very subtle blush color that matches the pink of the pitcher and this camera of mine doesn't pick it up that way.
