Mosaic Monday: My house

Mosaic Monday: My house
As I sat in my living room this morning reading the paper and checking mail, I realized what a complete and utter mess the room had become. So began a 2-hour cleaning spree until the living room and entry foyer gleamed. Then I took some pictures. The K is from the top of a bottle of Kenwood chardonnay.

Celebrate Mosaic Monday with me by visiting my friend Mary, at Little Red House, where she hosts this weekly feature. To view more beautiful mosaics of every shape and style, please visit Mary's blog at the link above.

Hello and thanks all. Yes Sharon, those are two little dog noses. That's George's toy box and that toy is on the top. I didn't notice it when I was taking the photo.

It was truly a mess, Lenore. I will spare you the grisly details but I will say that sitting here in my favorite seat in the living room, I see nothing but clean. When my house is tidy, I feel like my life is tidy. Oy.
