or leave a comment on this post....NO PURCHASE NECESSARY....DRAWING HELD ON MARCH 1st, 2008

I had so much fun making this Gorgeous One of a Kind MOSAIC Shelf. I used VINTAGE Rose Plates, A Pink Strand of PEARLS and OLD Vintage White and Off White Buttons. The shelf was painted a PRETTY SHABBY PINK which shows on the top and bottom of the shelf itself. The curved sides have had mosaics done on both sides. The shelf attaches to the wall with screws at the bottom of the shelf brackets as you can see 2 holes on the pictures. I will supply you with two buttons to just glue over the screw holes once you get the shelf where you want it. The shelf measures almost 20 inches long and I will pay for shipping to you. I have signed and dated the back. I hope you love this piece as much as I do and I am thrilled to be giving it away to pay it forward and make someones day.
I GET ALL MY TILES FROM ANNIE at TWINHEARTSMOSAIC. SHE IS AWESOME and TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO THIS...JUST BY E-MAILS!!! Check her out if you get a chance and tell her I sent you.

Now a quick update....I have been offline for 2 days now trying to get my new computer up and running....YIPPY SKIPPY it's WORKING SUPER FAST and I am busy trying to redo the website (better pictures of the Mosaic Shelf are on page 1 of the site) and get everything transferred. I will be taking pictures today and tomorrow and be listing all new items on the site, thank you for HANGING IN THERE WITH ME!!!!
As far as my back, I went to the Neurosurgeon yesterday and everything looks FABULOUS!!! There is probably nerve damage that may never heal and I am just to continue taking Advil or Motrin and not baby it. So, basically I have to learn to live with it. Okay....fine with me...I may be stiff and sore but hey, I am alive!!! And those days I can't take it...I will just have to chill out. HA HA HA...That is easier said than done for me.
I am also getting ready for a HUGE TAG SALE. OH BABY....This one is going to be the biggest one I have ever had. I have too much stuff left over from when I was going to open a shop and it's just not in the cards for me right now to have a physically shop. (Cancer sucks...and makes you re-think your priorities) So, stuff has to go and I will post pictures for you too see it. I am doing this all in-between everything else. Never enough time!!! LOL
Well, My boobs hurt just like that from the tattoo...but they look great and NOW I FEEL LIKE A WOMAN!!!
Here's to a great weekend....All my Love, Amy

Hi Sweetie,

Please enter me in your contest. The shelf is beautiful. I just read your comment on my blog and wrote back, but realize I should have left it here, so had hoped to copy and paste. It went fine on my end, but I can't figure out how to paste it here, so please go back to my blog and read my response! It's long, get a hot cup of coffee or tea!

Love you dear,

Suzanne said...


Forgot to mention, I think I skinned almost my entire body in a bicyle accident in my teens (or at least that's how it felt), so can relate to skinned boobies! Take a lot of pain helps. A little! (Love your courage.)
