Show and Tell

When I was cleaning out my storage room I found this mosaic I made in high school back in the late 60s. I made it in a basic art class where we tried all kinds of different mediums.
I never made another one but have enjoyed seeing all the items that are being made as mosaics today and may give it another try. I love the items made from pieces of china.
I'm not sure why I still have it but I guess I'll put it back where I found if for now.
For more Show and Tell go over to Kelli's House.

Definitely keep it! Your grandchildren will love it and it will end up being passed down.

Visiting from Kelli's Show and Tell!

WOW, if you made this in high school you're VERY talented. Have you ever thought of trying this again? I'm very impressed, and so wonderful you kept it all these years. Most things I ever made I gave away, one never thinks that far ahead as a teen LOL!

Thank you so much for sharing!

Oh wow, I'm quite impressed with your mosaic considering it was your first attempt at it...it's gorgeous! As the others have said, you must indeed keep it and should really have it decorating your home, not put back in a box!! xoxo

That's so good! I wish I had kept some of the things I did in art class. I made a tie dyed piece that I still think about. So keep it!
