I just have to brag about my newest purchase from a lovely friend of mine at My European Touch on Etsy. Her name is Monika and she is a mosaic artist. She offer's a wide assortment of quality mosaic art made by carefully hand cutting mosaic tiles from vintage and new china plates. Her work is beautiful.
I found her when I came across a real violin that she had applied her mosaic craft to and I fell in love with it but didn't have the money to spend at the time. She now offers a layaway plan and will also do custom orders. The other day she emailed me to let me know about this sweet little piece she did. Although not mosaic, I just adored it. It was made with everything I love! It was pink, had pink pearls, is covered with vintage lace, gimp on the edges, and old vintage brooch with roses, beautiul pink roses, feathers, and a cameo! (I love and collect cameos). She also sent me a couple of glittered butteflies that I placed among the roses. It was also a violin but made out of wood, about 18" long, and I could afford it. It was just my cup of tea so I bought it right then and there. Isn't it just the sweetest thing?! I laid this on an old vintage photo frame with the oval glass and all. I wished it would fit inside because it really looks great! Don't mind my rug in the background though.
Tell her Debi from Cameo Kids Boutique sent you!
