Mosaic Monday: Autumn at my place

All of the photos here were taken on the property with the exception of the bottom right two. The pain au chocolate was taken in my former kitchen and I’ve got the recipe on PW’s Tasty Kitchen site, as well as [here]. They are scrumptious. The glass pumpkin next to it, in the bottom right corner, was taken in New Orleans this summer.

Mosaic: Autumn hues

I’ve got another mosaic offering over at my Picture A Day blog, as well. Sometimes I just feel like making a nice mosaic, so there you go. This one was made using the Mosaic Maker at Big Huge Labs. I find it easier having a Flickr account when using this template, but it’s not necessary.

To view many different offerings from all over the country and beyond, please visit my friend Mary at Little Red House where she hosts a weekly theme featuring mosaics.

Until tomorrow, my friends . . .

That is a beautiful mosaic! I totally want to put it on my wall. It's breathtaking. I love the colors and the way you've arranged it.

Annie said...

I love all your photos Kate, but I do especially love your mosaics.

Have also loved your last few posts. I don't always comment, but I am always visiting!

[I was just wondering whether you could point me to a mosaic maker that doesn't want to scoop up all my photos out of every corner of my computer into it's clutches before it will help me? That is, I can just enter the photos I want and need at the time]?

I love mosaics but don't seem to have a lot of time to spend on them unfortunately!

Hope you have all had a relatively good weekend there, Kate, and that you are feeling slightly stronger every day! God Bless.

ps Some flowers for you again on my blog! My prettiest trees are in flower at the moment.

Thank you always Kate...for your friendship :)xo

I love this mosaic, Kate. I'm just in love with all the fall colors this year. Now, if it would just quit raining so I could get out and shoot them!

Spectacular - especially that brilliant yellow tree.

Glad you're feeling better.

Such a nice tribute to temperate-zone Autumn. I do miss it here in the sands of Waikiki..till I'm distracted by the glorious weather. You have made me nostalgic. Also very inspiring re: mosaics. I just downloaded googles picasa and it also helps to make them! Hope to produce some as nice as yours. Feel well, and scratch George behind the ear for me.
Aloha, Friend!

Beautiful photos, Kate. I really must try to get over here more often, but it appears you've been out and about enjoying leisurely drives in the area. Wish I could see your neck of the woods - we're deep in rain now. :(

Flea said...

This mosaic is fantastic. You have such a good eye. I'm sure both your eyes are good, actually.

Caroline said...

So beautiful Kate! Every mosaic you make is so special!

Merisi said...

A veritable Autumn Symphony, thank you for collecting and sharing it with us! I miss the brilliant autumn colors of the East Coast, We used to drive out to Poolsville with the children, to pick apples at Homestead Farm and eat ministrone in the soup kitchen there.

Love the emphasis of brown - everything pops next to it. Makes me want to go out and play in the leaves. And eat pain au chocolate.

Beautiful!

It's stormy here this morning and the browns and golds in the mosaic warm up the room! We don't have this kind of fall offerings down here in southeast TX. So you didn't buy the pumpkin you photographed in N'Awlins?

I watched PW on BH this morning and she was wonderful and so very funny and very quick on her feet...but we didn't get to see her boots...boo!

Hope this week brings continued recovery and good spirits and thoughts! Prayers and blessings, Jeanne

Little Ms Blogger said...

Great shots.

I have to admit, the colors this Fall in Connecticut have been breathtaking.

Thanks for sharing.

Sugar Creek Beads said...
