Shabby Chic Mosaic Treadle Sewing Machine Table and My Open Day

My new pride and joy is finally completed!

Wow, nothing like a deadline to get your butt into gear huh?!
This Sunday 18th October is "Kalamunda Open Studios" day in the gorgeous Perth Hills WA and I was hoping to be part of it. Unfortunately tho you have to have an "actual studio" and mine isn't classed as one so I've decided to have my very own "open porch day" like a garage sale but just have all my handmade jewellery, mosaics and other goodies
for sale. You can even enjoy the stunning views over the national park and city too while you browse.
So with the day quickly approaching I've been flat out making a few more pieces of jewellery, keyrings and at last finishing my gorgeous treadle machine. It's been sitting almost finished in my dining room for, I can't even remember how long but yesterday I finally finished it.

I love it, I'm so happy with it! I so wish I could keep this but there is no room in my teeny tiny home unfortunately so here it is, up for grabs for some lucky buyer. I'm going to really be sorry to see this go :-(

I picked up the treadle table about a year ago and couldn't wait to get started on it. I used heaps of beautiful vintage china and lots of glass in pinks, blue, green and white.
It was missing one of the drawers so I removed the other one and have replaced them with
"faux drawers" with a gorgeous glass heart knob on each.

The long centre front drawer still opens, I think it was used for needles etc and could be used to hide your keys etc.

The sides have been partly mosaiced but I left the decorative timber in between.

It is just to be used as a decorative "show off" piece so it no longer opens up, it's been created to be shown off in pride of place.
The base itself is beautiful too, quite an ornate base in great condition.

This truly is absolutely stunning and will be a beautiful addition to any home.
Measurements - 93cm long x 46cm wide x 78cm high

For sale - Shabby Chic Mosaic Birdhouse

This is one of the most gorgeous birdhouses that has been made with love and care. (the other most gorgeous one is also listed hehe)

I had the birdhouses handmade for me by a very clever man that I met on Ebay and then I set to beautifying them.

I have used lots of lovely china and glass to adorn this very unique bird 'home', it's way too beautiful to be called just a house.

I topped it off with lovely porcelain china roses that have been upcycled from other ornaments and the little bird was made by CMKsculptures in the US.
I added some pretty pink acrylic bead fringing along the side edges and sat the whole thing on a beautiful pedistal adorned with flowers, pearls and a cute little glass lady bird.
I also added a sweet butterfly to the front and another little butterfly on the roof.

Measurements -34.5cm high (top of bird), 20cm at widest point, 15cm deepest point.

Please note that the 1st photo, the one with 4 images was taken before I added the pearls on the base and the butterfly on the front. The other photos show it completed.

If you would like more photos, please email me and I'l be more than happy to send your more photos.

Due to its size this cannot be posted plus the fact that I would be devastated if anything were to happen to it.
Pick up is from Gooseberry Hill WA.
Delivery may be arranged to some metro areas for a fee.

Come on a grab yourself a stunning piece for your home.

I have lots of other beautiful shabby chic mosaics and also mosaic and cameo jewellery for sale too.
