Thrifty Blue Mosaic

mosaic monday

In order to participate in several Monday get-togethers , I created a mosaic of blue bargain treasures I have found the past two weekends.

The crystal candlesticks were $2 at the flea market. The center medallion ($4), white cow creamer ($2), and blue and white plaque ($3), all from an antique market in Burnet. The small blue vase was 50 cents from the flea market in my area.

I had so much fun finding these treasures.

Laura, you always have such pretty posts. I love your mosaic, and girl, you did great with your thrifting! I have always thought those little cow creamers are darling, and that's a good price for one that's vintage or even if it's not.

Every time I see blue and white porclain now I think of you. I got a post ready for a future Blue Monday that has some B&W porcelain in it.

Speaking of which...

Happy Blue Monday to you!

XO,

Sheila :-)
