Mosaic Monday

Hello everyone,
I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We have had a return to winter as many of you as well. We did get several inches of snow and the temperature is colder but we are enjoying the sunshine!
As it is Mosaic Monday I made the above mosaic from some flowers that I have blooming now.
On Sunday morning the moon was still shining so i took a few pictures-I read on some where that this is the brighest moon of the year. You can see it over the roof of our little garden cottage. The bluejay was enjoying the sunflower seeds.
For those of you who like dishes I made this mosaic.
And for those of you that are tired of winter-I made you a mosaic of peonies!
Hope you are enjoying Mosaic Monday at Mary's Little Red House.
Thank you Mary for hosting
&
Thank you for visiting me!
Carolyn

Beautiful mosaics! I would have a very difficult time picking a favorite!

Looks like you already have spring indoors with your lovely blooms!

Such lovely mosaics! You have an amazing eye for beauty!

I've been contemplating what color to paint the outside of our home; I am loving the grey your is wearing! Looks so soft and "at home" with its surroundings. =)

They're all such wonderful mosaics. We were in the midst of a snow storm so we missed the Wolf moon...but you got some great shots.

Carolyn Ford said...

Oh my! These are delightful mosaics! Absolutely stunning...each of them!

Riet said...

Such beautiful mosaics and I am sure we all long for spring with our flower mosaics.

Morning Carolyn from the UK with a covering of snow!!

Your beautiful mosaics always cheer me up, I think we are all looking forward to the Spring and seeing some wonderful shrubs and flowers in our parks and gardens. Also a little sun and warmth is needed!

I love your photograph of the moon, it looked great here to, but it was too cold to go out and take a photograph. We had a lovely sun set last night, but I was driving home with it behind me.

Have a good week, I know I will be having lots of cups of tea so will be thinking of you and yours with your lovely house, china and flowers and how you invite us to share a "cuppa" with you!!

Hello Carolyn: All of your mosaics are just outstanding. The moon photos were especially fabulous. And I adore peonies. My grandmother grew them in her garden. Thank you for starting my day off in such a positive way. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Hi Carolyn,

Today's post is just beautiful. The pictures of the snow, your garden house and the moon are enchanting!!! So pretty with the snow and the blue sky. You asked me if I have received the second parcel, but no I haven't. I don't think it will be long before I do. I am looking forward to them very much. Especially now I have read the others! I am glad you all enjoyed the Jeanne d'Arc living. Your Victoria magazines will go to a collegue. She loves to read this kind of magazines very much too!

Have a happy evening!

Lieve groet Madelief

Beautiful flowers Carolyn.
Just when it was getting spring- like, back comes the cold and snow. Of course it's way too early for us to have spring but it can't come soon enough.
I was thinking of doing peonies in a mosaic myself sometime soon; all of mine are from friends which makes them even more special.
Have a cozy week by the fire. :-)
