About

I am an artist and I love creating Upcycled birdhouses~
I collect various items from the many places I travel to use in my mosaic birdhouses such as natural ocean agates, river stones, textured lava rocks and smooth Obsidian. I even collect little wood perches I find as I walk my dog. I literally keep a plastic bag in my purse for what ever I may find.
