It brings me great pleasure to introduce you to a very special friend of mine, Monika, creator of My European Touch.   It is said that necessity is the mother of invention, and this was especially true in war torn Europe.  Watching her parents re-use, recycle, and re-invent items, using her doll cooking stove to melt the wax, Monika started creating candles from candle stumps using yarn as a wick.
Her dolls had clothes that she crocheted, sewed and cross stitched.  Making clay vases, drawing and painting were also among Monika's early interests.  Her interests and talents have varied and grown, bringing her to mosaics.   Now, Monika doesn't use just mosaic pieces that are already made, no, she precisely cuts fine bone/porcelain plates along with stained glass, jewelry and other baubles as she says.  Items such as cake domes, washboards, old violins and others, Monika transforms them into beautiful artistic creations.  Besides her mosaics, Monika also creates other decorative items, and she does shabby chic so well.   Let me show you a few.

Shabby Chic Mosaic Treasure Box

Her creations make me love pink!  And pink isn't even in my top 10 fav colors!

This Shabby Chic Wall Mirror is one of my favorite creations by Monika.

You just gotta go see one of her mosaic cake domes, they look so yummy!

Oh yeah, she enjoys doing custom creations and works closely with clients to create their desire.
So, visit her shop, My European Touch

Thanks for coming by and have a spectacular day.
