~ mosaic magic

I spent some time on Pinterest this weekend... It's amazing how one photo can spark hours of inspiration. I loved the image of the colorful carrots. Then the hydrangeas... and then I just kept going and going! I'm always attracted to orange, but just look what a touch of purple can do!  

























I get a little crazy about color combinations and making mosaics... I just can't stop creating! It's like I'm on a secret mission (think A Beautiful Mind) to find the most beautiful combination, the most beautiful representation of the images and colors. I need a small plaque made for my desk with a message saying something to the effect of:

THERE ARE MANY INTERPRETATIONS OF BEAUTY... 

In the mean time, I'll keep obsessing away!


I will be taking this week off from blogging... 


I am so thankful for all the kind words, dear messages, loyal followers and devoted readers who make this hobby so enriching and worthwhile!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I'll be back next Monday with another inspired home!


I am linking up for Mosaic Monday

Love the orange and purple! Inspiring use of carrots. Pinterest is so addictive, and an interactive way to get to know people through what they love. One of my nieces set up a shared board for three generations of women to post their Christmas ideas. It has been a blast to get to know my fellow Foss women through their posts. I will add some of yours. Thanks for contributing to the cyber-dialogue. ~CJ
