Crafts: Mosaic Bird Bath

This bird bath is a standard bird bath to which I added a mosaic tile interior. The tiles were left over pieces of broken tiles from our Master Bath Remodel which I affixed to the bowl using a few odd shapes to form a small sailboat in the center. Then I used grout to finish off the bird bath which adorns a spot in our back yard.
I am linking to many of these BLOG PARTIES

I'm stopping by from New Friend Friday at TGC. I love to store items in clear jars, but I hadn't thought to use a jar for the buttons from new clothes like the one shown in a post below. I'll certainly be doing this one. I'd like to invite you over to my place one day this week!

Hi, I'm stopping by from Met Monday. Your birdbath is lovely.The color and design are so attractive! The little birds will bathe in grand style. I would love to try this technique. The little birds im my area deserve a stylish bath too.
