A cement mushroom in progress...

Played with cement just a little bit before it got cold outside.... and now I have a 70% finished mushroom hanging out in my kitchen....

First, create a plain (if lop-sided) mushroom from a lightweight cement recipe that you just happen to have the ingredients lying around:

Begin attaching "reject" glass pieces around the edge with mortar:

Fill in the rest with pieces of broken and leftover kitchen tiles (these were really fun to smash in to smaller pieces with a hammer ---- though next time I think I need to break them in to even smaller pieces):

NEXT UP: grout the cracks & seal the mushroom...... someday when I get tired of having a half-finished mushroom in the corner of my kitchen :)
