My cup of tea birdhouse

I didn't have much time to prepare by the time I found out about Karla and Beth's birdhouse bling but I wanted to participate, so here is one I did some time ago. The twiggy silverware pulls really appealed to me when I bought it, but the top section was plain. I figured it already had the silverware so why not add the dishes? I had saved the pieces of several blue and white "accidents" so I made my first mosaic with them.

What a pretty picture- love how you salvaged your "accidents" for the birdhouse. Blue transferware is such a classic look!

I have a lot of those accidents too. As cute as that turned out, you need to break some plates on purpose too!

thanks for coming to the party. I hope a lot of new people get to come by and visit your brand spanking new blog today.
