We often visit a local farm shop with a tea-room and beautiful garden and a couple of weeks ago I was sitting on a bench enjoying a cuppa and a slice of something naughty when I noticed that the bench had two empty oval recesses just crying out to be mosaiced. So, I made templates of the recesses with a brown paper bag, had a word with the owner (who wasn’t sure if she was dealing with a mad woman) and set off home to make my designs.
The birds in the garden gave me my inspiration
I was even surrounded by them when I went back to install the mosaics onto the bench (felt a bit like a scene from a Disney movie!)
I’m going to enjoy sitting here now!
