Show & Tell Monday

Beautiful Vintage Compacts

Fabulous Flea Market Finds

Shabby Castle and Roses Mosaic Tray

Show and Tell Monday

I found this pretty vintage silver tray and decided to mosaic the tray. I have not done a piece in awhile. I used a very old hand painted plate that had broken accidentally. The plate was one of my favorites with the beautiful castle. I added old gold filigree china, & pink roses. This would be a lovely piece displayed in a home.

Happy Monday!

Hi Stephanie,
Love the tray! It's so pretty! Those compacts are just gorgeous too. I think I have one somewhere that was my great grandma's. Hmmm, I'll have to look for it.
