Meet Monika, her Mosaics... and More!

For years I have dreamed of being able to 
make a mosaic backsplash for our kitchen.
I just know it would be gorgeous!

However, 
I am afraid.
Afraid of tearing into the project 
and making a mess which I am 
incapable of finishing.

So.....I have done nothing.
Absolutely nothing about it.

However, I have found a lovely lady
in Florida who could perhaps help me
bring mosaics into my kitchen....
even if they aren't on the wall.

A cake platter

 Everything that Monika lists
has that "Oh.so.feminine" feel 
to it that makes that little girl
in me smile. 
It takes me back to that childhood bedroom
that was pink, pink, pink....
because I loved the color.
We have laughed since remembering
the male guests who were given my
room in our parsonage.
I was the one to give up my room when
visiting preachers came.
I wonder what they thought of a few days
or a week in the pink room with white furniture?
Funny to think about now....


Now, pink can be an accessory and 
doesn't have to be the main event.....


I know someone who would love it if I had this......No more glare in his eyes as he tries to sleep.

Monika is a gem of a lady with 
an awesome sense of humor.
While I have never met her in person
I have come to love and respect this 
dear lady who speaks German, 
English and at least two other 
languages.  Good grief....
I can barely speak proper English!

If you would like to see more of Monika's 
amazing work you can check out her
Etsy store at


I am sure you will be pleased
by this simply adorable shop!

Oh I shall have to go look.

You know, recently Penny at The Comforts of Home offered a free ebook on doing mosaics. Wonder if she still has that going...
