It has been a terrific weekend for our May 24 long weekend.  The weather has been so warm that you want to spend all day outside.  I have started to plant my annuals and hope there is not a late frost.  I hope that you are having a great gardening weekend too.   Mary will be hosting Mosiac Monday and I hope that you will join us over at her place.   Have a great week.

Pretty flowers in your mosaic this week Val. I see you added 'and other stuff' to your title - I'll be looking for it. :-) How about joining Sandi for tea on Tuesday?

Beautiful mosaic for this warming up time of the year. Yay! Hopefully, no more frost for you so the annuals will start their beautiful blooms. Here in Texas we're about ready for summer...it's been pretty warm. Nice mosaic.

What a gorgeous mosaic. The weather is getting warmer here too.

Any work that you find in an Antique book prior to 1923 is copyright free. You are allowed to use the work. On my little packages of bookplates for sale, I include the information of the book I used and the artist's name. There is fascinating history behind many of the artists at the turn of the century.

So nice to meet you. Karen
