Things Are Under Construction

Got a few projects we're working on here at Sweet Bee Cottage....
Baby Bee had fun smashing broken dishes.
You might remember I mentioned I wanted to make a mosaic table out of some of the stumps left from the two liquidambars.  

Well here it is - uh - sort of -
It's still not grouted.  
Time and weather have not cooperated together to finish this project.  But clear skies are projected for this weekend and Worker Bee and Baby Bee are going to a baseball game so I bet I can get this baby done (especially if I make a nice little iced latte to keep me going). I'll show you again when it's all done.

So what are you working on?  Anything under construction?
Would an iced latte motivate you to finish a job?  I'd be happy to send one if I could.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Oh what fun!! I always wanted to do husband has been a tile setter for over 30 yrs..but no tile as cute as what you used!!

    smiling..Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  2. That looks wonderful--finished or not! That's something I've always wanted to learn how to do...beautiful job!

    I'm just working on more vintage favorite!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

  3. Did you use tiles or broken dishes? It looks great. Looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    I have a project or two that I want to do...but I'm too busy visiting with my mama. Projects that are noy urgent can wait!

  4. Anything under construction?

    Where do I start? lol

    I'm working on the yard...and I have a stump sitting in my yard that could be prettied up like yours....

    I have a million and one crafts that have been started, need to be started and ALL needed to be

  5. If I could get my bathroom finished and my studio too I would be supremely happy.

  6. I have too many things to comment on that is a work in progress! I love the mosaic. I broke a plate last night I could use :)

  7. what a fun idea to use the stumps!! Love the mosaic tile!! A couple of years ago my daughter took an old bedside table that a neighbor was throwing out, and she covered it in paint and decoupaged paper with mosaic tile on both sides. She had so much fun with that project!! When she was home for Easter, she decided it was time to take the little table back to college with her. So it is gone now. I had grown so used to it being here. So representative of the artsy person she is.

  8. That table is going to be so pretty when you're done, Janelle! I like the layout of the shards, especially the little pops of red!
    Nothing under construction here. Just trying to finish painting the porch railing. Now I need to paint the front door too. Isn't it funny how little projects always seem to snowball into lots more work?!
    Have a great weekend!
    p.s. Be sure to post the finished table, ok?

  9. Oh, it's so pretty! I went to tapas restaurant last night and they had mosaics on the wall. Really interesting. Have a great weekend, Friend.:)

  10. well we can have iced tea out in my sunroom on your mosaic table! lol. honestly, what a fabulous and novel idea!

    thank you for your kind words on my sunroom redo, and for stopping by the cape on the corner!

  11. I've never done something with mosaic, I think it's pretty tough. But it's becoming beautiful! And what about me? Well, I've our garden under construction!A tough job too!
    Enjoy your week!

  12. No, nothing going on here. Now I'm thinking I should have gotten that mosaic-topped kitchen stool at the antique mall the other day. Fifteen dollars! Should have grabbed it.


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
