Mosaic Monday: Vintage Spring




I know most people would be celebrating spring with pastels, but I seem to be in a vintage mood at the moment. It's funny how these things go -- I'm not sure where inspiration comes from, but I know that you just have to listen when it speaks. And there are really no pretty colors here just yet. We have several weeks before the more colorful flowers burst forth. So here is my take on a vintage spring. :)

Now let's have some mosaic fun! Here are the instructions:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post. The post may be about any subject you wish. The only stipulation is that it include a collage, or mosaic of photos.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline

And a quick reminder: if you would like to join Mosaic Monday but don't know quite where to start, there is a tutorial on mosaic-making on my sidebar. Just scroll down, and click on the small blue mosaic.

  15. I love your snowdrops!!! They are so pretty and sweet. Very romantic and moody.
    Not sure the linky thing is working. It didn't allow me to post a picture and also I don't see my link at all.

  16. Vintage fits with the early spring, since the tulips and daffodils are not flowering yet. Take care and have a wonderful week.

  17. The vintage look is so elegant with the script. The snowdrops are lovely, but I especially like the window with pots of tiny daffodils on the sill. Have a great week.

  18. They look like snowdrops. I saw those one someone else's blog today. They are beautiful. I am saying goodbye to my silk flowers and hello to our first little fresh flower bouquet.
