Mosaic Monday...or...Pink and Green Mosaics from Two Very Special Guests!

Welcome to another Mosaic Monday with our wonderful hostess, Mary at Little Red House! Be sure to drop by her beautiful blog to see one of her fabulous mosaics and to find a list of who is participating this week! Two of my dear friends have graciously agreed to appear on my blog as my special guests today!! Both of these very talented ladies decided to use pink and green as the theme of their mosaics.



The first one is from my friend Jeanette, whom some of you may know as jfell from Rate My Space! I will let her tell you about her beautiful mosaic:
Since I don't have any pink and green inside my house, I got to thinking that I have lots of it outside in the summer. I just love pink flowers, so I thought I would show you a few of them. I love pink geraniums. My grandma always had geraniums, so they remind me of her...gorgeous. This is the very first day lily bloom. We have lots of these in different colors from yellow to very dark copper. This is the very last bloom on the peonies and the azalea. I hate to see the season for them end already.
.


Here's another beautiful creation from Jeanette! You probably recognize her gorgeous kitchen. It is the all time number one most viewed space on Rate My Space! It was even featured as an inspiration space on the television version of RMS. Isn't that amazing? There is also an amazing lady behind this beautiful space!



This wonderful mosaic is from my friend Kathysue! As you may remember from a recent post, I had the pleasure of meeting her in person along with Barb at Grits and Glamour! It was one of the best experiences of my life! I will let this talented lady tell you about her mosaic:
It all started with coffee on the front porch. My miniature Calla lily had the tiniest dew drop on its tip. I looked at the combination of the pink and green and thought of how much I love that combination! So I thought I would take some pictures outside of some pink and green and then I went into the house and saw MORE pink and green sooooo...... I guess I really do like it. I noticed I had light pink to dark, almost red pinks. Hope you ladies don't mind me sharing my pink and green fetish.



Want to see more of Kathysue's creativity? I'll bet you recognize her beautiful spa-like master bathroom! It is also one of the highest rated spaces on Rate My Space and was even featured on the front page of RMS, as well as on the featured designer's page of MicasaStyle! You can also find her on Decorpad. I feel calm and peaceful just looking at it!

I am so blessed to be able to count theses two amazing and talented women among my friends! Thanks so much, Jeanette and Kathysue, for allowing me to post your gorgeous mosaics!

And I thank you for dropping by! Be sure to head on over to Mary's to see more wonderful examples of mosaics! I'll see you next time! A la prochaine!

  9. Debbie, you have very talented friends who not only share with you their art but their wonderful homes. Each mosaic has its own charm. BTW, thanks for your kind words about our Twyla. She is a rescued abused cat. We just had her for a month and she has regained her health. My daughter and I spoiled her so much. You've got quite a feline crew. Have a nice week!

  19. As an old RMSer myself, I do remember these two nice ladies and their lovely spaces! It looks like they are just as talented at creating beautiful mosaics as they are at creating beautiful interiors. Pink & green is probably my favorite color combo and I use it in the 4 main rooms of my house.

  28. Hey Debbie,

    What gorgeous photos. Loving that bathroom. Yes, I do find lots of loot over at Feathers & Twigs. The two ladies that own it are all the time going to yard & estate sales, thrift shops etc. I wish you lived closer. Anyway, thanks for the blog love, sweets!

  29. Oh goodness... all I had to do was read pink & green, my favorite color combo! Is it possible to have too much? I think I do!! Jeanette's flowers are just beautiful, they look lovely together in the mosaic. And I can see why her kitchen is so popular on RMS, she is a very talented decorator.

    I love the green and white in Kathysue's home. The bath is to die for!!

    You have two very sweet and talented friends, Debbie. Thank you and them for sharing the inspirations! :-)

    xoxo
