We're Going To The Beach!


Monday is always a challenge for me ...... blue is not a color I actively seek out.
But I love joining Smiling Sally for Blue Monday, so here I am again with some
BLUE I managed to cobble together into a fun evening at the beach.

The Mosaic part of Monday is a snap for me and I love putting the images
from a tablescape together to form a mosaic to share over at Little Red House.

So grab your picnic basket, double check your list and bring a warm jacket
to ward off the evening chill.  We'll be eating under the stars so pick
out your favorite beach chair and take a place close to the fire while the
crabs boil and the corn steams!  Who brought the wine??





Sapphire Post86 Fiesta, Made in China chargers, glassware, votives and lantern are
from Pier 1, crab plates from Home Goods.  Flatware is 'Cityscape.'

  1. Maybe it is because we live at the Jersey Shore, or maybe it is because I am a Cancer (crab), or maybe it is just because that table is gorgeous, but I love that mosaic!

  15. Blue is my favorite color so I love this table setting! The lanterns are great and the little vignette in the center with the driftwood and tiny chair and shells is perfect.

    What program do you use to create your mosaics? Do you have any tips and tricks to share?
