Rose Garden Ripple Mosaic Garden Bird Bath

Rose Garden Ripple Mosaic Garden Bird Bath
Rose Garden Circular Abstract Mosaic Bird Bath

I made a circular abstract design bird bath with a tile palette made to represent a rose garden. I've decided I like that palette so much I've made an addition to the ripple bird bath range out of it too. Rose Garden Ripple uses the same soft greens, blue-greys, purples and rose pinks, and has the same lovely muted feel to it. It would look great in any style of garden. Pop over to my shop to see more pics of both designs.

Three Orange Butterflies Jade Mosaic Garden Bird Bath

Three Orange Butterflies Jade Mosaic Garden Bird Bath

The butterflies on this bird bath have iridescent wings that shine with metallic magenta and gold when the light catches them. With the two shades of jade making up the background it gives this bird bath a very exotic look. The colours also remind me of vintage fabric like William Morris, or Liberty. It's a lovely bird bath that would fit into any style of garden.

Rose Garden Mosaic Bird Bath

Rose Garden Mosaic Bird Bath

Sometimes you just need a simple design to show something off. I wanted to collect a group of tiles to represent a rose garden. When I'd decided which ones to use they looked so good just randomly placed next to each other on my desk I thought why not put them into a simple random design in the bird bath. This circular design matches the soft, calm palette and just gently draws your eye around. It's a great bird bath for some muted colour in the garden.

Relaunched Moonlight Ripple Garden Bird Bath

Moonlight Ripple Bird Bath

I put a new tile order in to my suppliers recently and discovered some new tile colours were available. A couple of them were just perfect for my Moonlight Ripple Bird Bath. I had changed the colour combination on this bird bath since the original design due to some colours being discontinued, but these new colours meant I could go back to the design being a deep blue. So I've jiggled some of the ripples around, removed a couple, added a new border colour and this is the result. Much more night sky, and moonlit water.

Mint Green Gingham Vintage Mosaic Garden Bird Bath

Mint Green Gingham Vintage Mosaic Bird Bath

Something a bit different with this bird bath. I wanted a cottage, rustic, vintage, look. So I made a mint green gingham mosaic design, then I painted the rim and sides of the saucer and rubbed it back to give a distressed finish. The end design has a really nice soft vintage look to it.

Rambling Roses Bird Box

Rambling Roses Bird Nest Box

Another wirework decorated box this time with roses on a tangled stem called Rambling Roses. The wire has been painted dusky pink on the roses and a copper rust colour on the stems. The bird box is a lovely pastel mint shade.

Nature for You

Riot of Roses Bag Charm

I've opened a new section on my website called Nature for You. I'm going to use it to create nature and wildlife inspired items that could be given as gifts to wildife, or garden lovers, or as a gift to yourself. The first items added are three bag charms that were inspired by the colours of the beads used.
