Scraps in another fashion

My wonderful husband and I were married on June 1, 1980, 31 years ago.  This was my wedding china...a pattern I have always loved and use daily.  My father bought me this teapot as a special gift.
 Johnston Brothers "Rose Chintz"  
 I have always wanted to make some mosaics, but didn't know how.  Finally I "winged it" with a package of clay from Michael's Craft Store, making the stepping stone below to immortalize my china..

Of course, since I didn't know what I was doing, the rounded edges of the broken cups are jagged and sharp.  But, it is in the garden.  I am a quilter...but, I feel inspiration from this blog to branch out, http://multicoloredpieces.blogspot.com/  Some day, I will learn it the right way and continue to bring back to life all the many scraps of my life.

I have never seen that pattern before and it is very pretty. I love teapots. I wonder if most dishes have matching teapots any more. I like your stepping stone too.

It's very sweet. Good for you for taking new steps.

I think you did a beautiful job! I am forever handing Joe the glue to put the handles back on the cups ... but I love what you did with the broken pieces! Thanks for letting me know . . . I just love that pattern (you probably know that!) :-) Thank you!
