Buffet Finale....and a Giveaway!

My buffet is finished! I couldn't get a very good picture today for some reason though. Keep in mind that the walls in my dining room are a gold/yellow. They look beige here, so the color is kind of off on the mosaic too.





I will try to take better photos later. In the meantime, I also wanted to announce my 400th Post Giveaway on my Lavender Hill Studio blog. If you want to be entered in the giveaway leave a comment here or on my Lavender Hill Studio post. You will be entered once here and once there if you leave a comment at both blogs.
The contest ends May 1st. I am taking a blog break until then.
The giveaway is now closed. The winner will be announced later today. Thank you for all of your wonderful comments!
Welcome Home,
Penny

Rosehaven Cottage said...

This looks stupendous!!!! After seeing this, I just had an epiphany about a dresser that I've been thinking I want to redo. It has a perfect tray top and I don't know why I didn't think of it until now that I should mosaic it with pink and white tile scraps that I have! Now I need to go back into your archives and see if I can figure out how to do it. :)
