BOO!

Mosaic Monday is hosted by Mary at Little Red House. You all know that I kind of have a "thing" for mosaics, so I'm sure nobody is surprised that I join this event every week.

In Blogville, it is never too early to start getting ready for a holiday, and I'm always waaaay behind. I'm not going to let everyone get ahead of me with Halloween posts though. Today I am sharing some strange mosaics in honor of Halloween, which will be here before we know it (at least in Blogville).




AN ALIEN?


ANOTHER PLANET?

PRAYING MANTIS

WATER LILLY
Little Red House has links to other mosaics, which are made of beautiful pictures. I just hope that, after posting these strange photos, Mary will not ban me from Mosaic Monday. (Nah, Mary is much too sweet to do that)
(Do you think Laurie has gone off the deep end?) Thank you for coming by to visit. I'm not always this weird (at least not on my blog). laurie

Really neat shots Laurie! I especially love the water lily. What a creative way to showcase these. Have a great week! Kathy

Mary said...

Oh Laurie, you are a hoot! Seriously, I'm LMAO at 5:48am, but quietly so I don't wake the whole house...

Thanks for bringing the smiles to Mosaic Monday. :)

Hi!

Neato! Great pictures today. I just captured a praying mantis about 20 minutes ago. He was on the wall in my kitchen. We've had so much rain that creatures are trying to come in to live.

Riet said...

Those are very special pictures.Great mosaic. have a nice day

Bonnie said...

I had a "critter" mosaic a few weeks ago and Mary graciously let me come back :o) I love up close photos of insects. As long as you leave out cockroaches and fleas and mosquitos I am very happy to look at them :o)

Thanks for sharing.

Oh, hello Most Wonderful Queen of Mosaics! I love your scary mosaics. The praying mantis is awesome! You're the bestest, Laurie!
Be a sweetie,

Laurie,
Seeing your praying mantis does remind me of Halloween. One year my insect obsessed son wanted to be a praying mantis for Halloween. Now that is a costume that you can not go out & buy off the rack. So I had to make his costume. Turned out pretty dang cute. He won first place in the school costume contest. So seeing your little bug brought back great memories for me.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Miss Laurie~ I'm finally back from my blogcation.

The autumnal colors in your fall banner are gorgeous !!

Yup, the creepy crawly mosaics were Halloween inspiring. I'm all for taste testing Halloween candy in advance! Those tiny chocolate bars are just too irresistible!

The vignettes of cloches were beautiful, especially the one dedicated to September 11th.

I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

These are great Laurie! So clever!

I missed this yesterday. We were traveling from the lake, which always takes longer than the 2.5 hours it's supposed to. I also lost my blog list...so now, I'm collecting my blogs again and putting them on their own blog! I came by to pick up your link.

Hi Laurie!
I have spoken with Debbie. Time is of the essence for Amy. This is the reason for the address posted on my blog. If you want to blog about the cards, just link them to my blog, that way we are only posting the address (1) time. Debbie really wants the cards to come to the house as Amy so watches for mail call. She loves to watch them coming. That is what Beansieleigh did. She put a button on her site, and then linked them to mine. This has been a really bad day today for Amy. Debbie is very concerned. Those cards have to make it in time. They just have to. We thank you so much for your help sweetie. Email me if you want. My email address is on my profile. Talk to you soon. Country hugs and love, Sherry

Some of the most unusual and best mosaics I've seen so far!! The praying mantis is something I hope not to run into anytime soon...LOL

Sarah said...

Yet another one that put a huge smile on my face and laughter in my heart. Love your sense of humor. Enjoy the correspondence. ~ Sarah

Kathleen said...

Have you ever wondered what the Mantis is praying for?
I hope it is for us..
(and I got nipped by one..ouchie!)

Great mosaics, Laurie!

They are all over the reservoir, 12 miles from here, I begged to go get some, for the pod are beautiful in arrangements and wreaths.
