Flowers Inside and Out

Today was an Easter to remember for a rather unusual reason: a 7.2 earthquake centered in Baja California south of Mexicali gave us quite a good and long shake in the afternoon. Ironically, the quake was at a latitude of 32 Degrees North!

Otherwise we had a nice quiet Easter with splendid weather and good company. Here's a mosaic with flowers from the garden as well as flowers and textures that appear on some of my favorite inside pieces.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

Be sure to visit Mary over at Little Red House for more mosaics!

  1. Wow, what an eventful Easter. The vases in the mosaic would look wonderful without flowers, they are beautiful.

  13. Lovin' all the textures you've captured in this mosaic, especially the tiny leaves of the "baby's tears". Did you see Tyra's post about it?

  14. Another beautiful mosaic, Amanda! Happy you were able to enjoy your Easter with just a rumble. Kind of scary though.

    Your embroideries are really cute! I just finished a stitching along and picked up a pillowcase that I started ages ago. I think I'll add our newest granddaughters name and make it for her.

    Nice stopping by!
    Kindly, ldh

  15. I'm sorry you got shaken, and the latitude is very spooky. But of course, am relieved you suffered no damage.

  18. oh my goodness...I just looked at your paper mache Easter eggs from Germany. Those are such a favorite of mine. I collected some when we were there and have hidden them from the kids until they are a bit older...they are just too precious to be squashed in a moment's time. Love them!

  19. What a bizarre coincidence! Glad you're all okay (just a little shaken). Love the plate and other ceramic items. Glad you liked my "grid" mosaic. I love blues, too.
