I have the itch to be outdoors. More importantly, I want to create a beautiful space to relax and enjoy my garden in the backyard. Ever since I can remember I had admired mosaics. Those small scale decorative pieces of art loaded with color and texture lures me like a fish to a worm on a hook. To look at them they are intimidating. It must take hours and hours to create such a beautiful object. But I have come to find out that it is fairly simple and not really time consuming as one would think. On Sunday, I designed my first stepping stone. Someone had given me a lot of glass stones and I was anxious to put them to good use. I went to the store and bought mortar, grout, a large flat stone, and a trowel. I was set for my project. Monday, I cemented the stones in place. Tuesday I added the grout. Today,I polished the stones and it is garden ready. I think that I am going to make several of these. It was fun coming up with a pattern. Not bad for a newby huh?
