PRAY FOR PEACE
No, you haven’t arrived at the wrong blog. Today’s topic is still Mosaics, but it was impossible not to make note of a world in turmoil.
Just in case you haven’t heard, Benazir Bhutto, former Pakistani Prime Minister and a candidate in her country’s next election, was murdered today.
The first woman to head the government of an Islamic country, she has championed democracy and moderation in an area of the world where both are often in short supply.
Pray for peace.
And now we continue with our regularly scheduled program…
STOP AND SMELL – THE ROSES
In my opinion, the urge to create mosaics is truly universal. Siobhan, an Australian artist, proves my point.
This Melbourne resident makes mosaics with a passion … a passion for roses.
Her romantic creations all feature pretty pink roses as depicted on English, Bavarian, Austrian, and French Limoges china.
Siobhan loves to shop for vintage goods and pretty bone china.
Some of her old world finds she sells online, others she uses in her mosaics for tables, lazy Susans, birdhouses, photo frames, or jewelry boxes.
You can join Siobhan on her shopping missions on her blog Vintage Mosaic Boutique:
Her most recent venture is THE ROSE TRELLIS. Similar in concept to America’s MAKE MINE PINK boutiques, this online directory is a central hub catering to Australian (as well as worldwide) romantics’ shabby chic needs.
