Creativity



Imagination is the beginning of creation.
You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine
and at last you create what you will.
~ George Bernard Shaw






Creativity is flowing here at Mourning Dove Cottage. Yesterday I painted this wooden tray that Dear Hubby made in his shop. I had grapes in mind for this one. It's the perfect decorative piece for a kitchen or for serving, and it has pretty leaf handles that are made of metal. It's ready for the shop.






Another project I started is a mosaic piece that I've had in my mind for quite sometime. It all came together for me finally, and I will finish grouting it today. I'll take photos later and show you what it looks like.




Enjoy your day
and go create something!

Beautiful tray Donna! Those beautiful clusters remind me of the wine country.

I'm also curious to see your mosaic design!

Oh Donna, if I had seen this gorgeous tray in a store I would have rushed to the checkout counter without even looking at the price! This is wonderful. I can't wait to see what you create with that mosaic glassware, I've always wanted to try that but never had the courage!!....
