Oh my, what have we here?
Don't tell me she's found her misplaced muse?
mmmmmmmm...Fiesta has a flavor.
Sort of like pink, only richer.
Mosaic Lady might enter this in the Etsy Bitchen Kitchen Mosaic Challenge. The theme is housewares. (Kind of a jab at etsy brass who have decided to place mosaics not in art, but in housewares!)
We don't have a lot of old kitchen stuff any more. When we were packing up to leave Colorado, our Fairy Godmother ordered Mosaic Lady to put in the trash any object that had the f word in front of it, used as an adjective to describe it. For example: "f'in toaster. F'in dull knives. F'in teflon frying pan with no teflon left."
It is a good thing that our Fairy Godmother has not applied that same rule to that same favorite adjective used in front of "cat".
Or our names.
Be sure to biggify so you can see the cute bumble bee above and the hummingbird below. Their wings quiver!
The tail on the tiny turtle moves, too, which is good. It moves out of the way instead of snapping off when you set the carafe down.
Our Fairy Godmother has been trying to talk ML into using sculpey to make legs for the carafes so they don't leave moisture marks on tables (assuming you're drinking a chilled white or pink and not a red, of course.)
ML had never heard of sculpey and is pretty sure she'd be talentless at fashioning it into symmetrical legs.
While she waits for our Fairy Godmother to show us a sample (reminder reminder), do you think we should see if the carafe looks good on top of this?
You can see a few more photos of this piece and read more about the materials at ML's blog. I also want to pimp Whiskers Rescue. ML got the cute green rhinestone fly pin in the first photo from them. They are one of our favorite eBay sellers to patronize. They spay and neuter feral cats in New Jersey and care for them in their existing colonies, providing food and medical care. Please look at their eBay store and support them if you can!
