About

Singing birds with microphones

I have always been an artist, my main mediums have been pen and ink and paints, both acrylic and oil. I have always dabbled here and there with other mediums and other artsy ideas, but the singing birds inspired me.

As I sat on my front porch sipping my wine in the tiny little spot of Roslyn, Wa. I couldn't help notice all the birds around me and how loud they were. For some reason in this particular part of the world, they always sounded like they were singing with microphones. It was beautiful.

As much as I fancy my wine in the evenings, and being the art minded soul I am, I kept all my corks knowing I would incorporate them into my art one day.

My dad, and avid bird lover, raised me alone and every Fathers Day I give him an original artwork by me. With the combination of these things and my creativity, my very first mosaic birdhouse came about.

Since then I have traveled to many places collecting anything I find that I can incorporate into a birdhouse. They have become me, I love adding details and making them very special.

Welcome to Winestone Birdhouses~

Here you will find a wide variety of Mosaic Birdhouses and Garden Art made from natural materials such as wine corks, coastal agates, river stones, wood rounds, and more~ Each stone birdhouse is unique and made from natural and recycled items that I personally collect during all my travels around the beautiful Pacific Northwest. For the ones that do not come with a rope hanger, I apply felt feet for scratch resistance.

All are sealed and fully weather proof.

Custom orders are welcome~

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Direct check out and PayPal are my preferred methods of payment. PayPal processes payments and is completely secure, safe and confidential. You do not need an existing PayPal account to use this feature. It's fast and easy for both sides.

I ask that payment be received within 24 hours of purchase. Unfortunately, without payment, I can’t ship an item and it will need to be re-listed. If payment is not received within 24 hours of initial order I will assume that you have changed your mind and re-list the item. ("Unless of course I hear from you") Shipping policies apply only after payment has cleared.

Your PayPal transaction will show up in your statement as a payment to "WinestoneBirdhouses", as "WinestoneBirdhouses" is my business name.

Direct Check out may list on your statement as "Layla Coats" as that is my name.

***** I price my birdhouses according to size and the amount of various items on them, as well as the time involved, which is different for each one.

You may notice two birdhouses of the same size and shape but with different prices- This is because of several reasons... One may have more embellishments then the other, or one may have turned out "more to my liking" then the other, or one I may have spent more time working on and so on.
Shipping
I ship my birdhouses via USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation included.

**Due to the fact that I have moved to an area that is unavailable for pick up, I will be shipping birdhouses once to twice a week . I found this to be a more logical solution rather then to raise shipping prices due to the cost of gas prices and the distance I am from the Post Office. However, I am more then willing to work out with you a new shipping price if you need the birdhouse sooner then what would be available.


Also, here is Etsy's guide to help with your first purchase and checkout: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

***** I would also like to remind you that rocks are heavy as is the stuff I use to adhesive them to the wood, so keep that in mind when you see the shipping prices as they do reflect actual cost *****
Refunds and Exchanges
I of course want to make every effort to make you completely satisfied with your purchase. If there are any problems or issues I will work with you to find a solution that works for both of us.
Additional policies and FAQs
*Weather Proof- I have received many questions about this and would like to provide the following info of the exact materials I use to accomplish just that, weather proofing.

For weather sealer, I apply several coats of:
Helmsman® Spar Urethane
A specially formulated protective clear finish for exterior or interior wood that is exposed to sunlight, water, or temperature changes. It contains UV blockers to reduce the sun's graying and fading effects. Helmsman® Spar Urethane forms a protective barrier against rain and moisture and its special oils allow the finish to expand and contract with the wood as seasons and temperatures change.

***I welcome all custom orders and any feedback you may have about my birdhouses. I have even been able to "re-create" sold birdhouses, so if you see one in this section you like http://www.etsy.com/shop/WinestoneBirdhouses/sold please feel free to contact me through Etsy or email me directly at
winestonebirdhouses [!at] gmail.com at anytime.

Thanks for spending time with me and I hope to see you again soon.
