Broken Glass and Screaming Peaches!

This week has been busy... and its only Tuesday!!! Peaches are ready and I have been canning like a crazy lady. My favorite is the Screaming Peaches, or as some might call it, Peach Jalapeno Jelly. I prefer the first because it captures what I was canning!!! I love HOT jalapenos.
I also made peach pie filling, peach jam, peach and vanilla bean jam and peach BBQ sauce. I am peached out!

The very hour before canning season started for me I was elbow deep in broken glass. I was given a little outdoor patio table and it needed a little sparkle. So I brought up my glass.( Truth be told here; I begged my husband to carry it upstairs for me because I have a fear of falling with it down my scary and steep basement stairs....I had to promise no working on glass projects in the bed this time...but that's another story! ) So my family ate all of their meals in the front room for four days. (Something that annoys my daughter to no end!) But when I was all done I had a beautiful mosaic table and a few micro mosaics too.
 Work in progress.
All grouted and sealed and ready to find a new home in my garden.
(My neighbor just gave me two chairs which are being painted right now.....I have a set for free!!!)

Heart, Cupcake, Rainbow, and Mr Fox. I had to use tweezers to make these little guys.

Mmm... peaches are delicious and jalapenos equally tasty. Your mosaic table is very impressive.

oh, the table is so pretty! I have two stumps that I want to do the tops of. I have never done mosaic before though.
I know exactly what you mean by no "glass in bed" haha I love everything you make. I sure miss you!
