Large Mosaic Birdhouse

This project started when I found this wooden birdhouse at a local thrift shop in Tybee Island. The asking price was $90.00.  👿 Oh, heck no! I really wanted it, so I offered $30. Soon, I was walking out with my new birdhouse.  😀

This is what it originally looked like with a few items attached to it, but I saw it as a blank canvas for me to mosaic.

It sat for almost two years, and I finally started the process, which you can follow in my next posts. My husband has offered many suggestions that, of course, I have ignored. One artist in a family is enough. He means well and did “bird dog” (i.e., find) many of the pieces I used on this birdhouse. He also graciously agreed to move it around many times until I decide its final place.

 

The house has some unique features such as the wood top.  And I like the horseshoe and perch.

Mosaic switch plate with smoking pipe

This mosaic double switch plate is built on a wood frame and features a smoking pipe, a pair of men’s slippers, lots of pretty dishes and an ace of spades.  It would make a nice addition to any man’s office.

 

 

This double switch plate is also built on a wood frame and is definitely for racing enthusiasts.  It even comes with a key!
