Setting up the Studio

Today, I'm getting to spend the whole day in my Fortuna studio.  Moving things around, setting up work tables, and finding inspiration.  It's a good day!

Spent today working on my daughter and granddaughter's Halloween costumes.  I forgot how much sewing clears the mind.

Old Mosaic Birdbaths

 This birdbath was made by my husband and I about 13 years ago.  He has not done any mosaic work since, smile. 

Another of my older birdbaths.  This one is solid, and is very heavy.

 One of my favorites made using tiny tile (3/8" porcelain tiles).

Poppy Mosaic

Poppy Mosaic Table
I found this mosaic coffee table buried under boxes in an unfinished room in my home.  It is one of my first mosaic pieces made about 15 years ago.

Fortuna Studio Bathroom...


The new studio bathroom needs some work.  Leo took the sink, cabinet, and toilet out to repair leaks, and allow me to give it a fresh coat of paint.  I also decided, that while the cabinet was out I would spruce it up with a little color!
