I'm Baaaaaack!

It has been months since I last blogged.  I put it aside for awhile so that I could concentrate on my 3 shops on Etsy. I just opened a vintage shop and had 100's of items to list and I honestly just couldn't sit any longer to post to my blog.

I also have been having a lot of trouble commenting on other blogs, so if you haven't seen me in a while it's only because Blogger won't always let me comment and tells me I don't have permission. What???

I hope to get back to posting at least once a week.  In the meantime I will share some of my new mosaic pieces and some of the new listings in my vintage shop.
The first one is a small guitar.  I have always wanted to mosaic a guitar and it was quite a challenge to do so, but I would definitely do it again.

 This one was a fun piece to do. I like to do some ultra modern pieces sometimes. I call this Orange Sunburst.
 This piece has some elements from a 120 yr-old home in rural Colorado. I did a mosaic for my sister and had some things left over so I used them in this piece. I also have my signature piece of jewelry in the tear shaped copper pendant right next to the mirror. It has a small piece of real turquoise in it. All my mosaics are One-of-a-kind and you can see them all at http://www.memoriesinmosaics.etsy.com/

 I just love dishes of all kinds, especially vintage pieces. The artistry is amazing and I always wonder who owned it and where it's been. This first one is a hand painted sugar bowl.
 This is a lovely plate with "courting scenes" all around the rim.
 This i a wonderful cameo that was carved from a shell. If it's held up to the light you can see through it.
You can see these and many other fine pieces at http://www.memoriesofyesterday.etsy.com/

Until Next Time :)

Good evening,
I have been wondering about you. I'm glad you are OK! I didn't know you have 3 etsy shops...no wonder you are busy taking pictures and listing items!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. ~Natalie
