Featured Artisan - MyEuropeanTouch - June Week 3

This week's featured artisan of the It's Better Handmade Guild blog ring is Monika of MyEuropeanTouch.

When you browse through her studio, you will be amazed at her talent and technique in being able to take bits of broken plates, glass and china to create what is definitely one-of-a-kind mosaic pieces for home decor. Besides being able to put the pieces together, she shows her artistic side with the beautiful designs she incorporates into every piece.
Please take a minute to read her interesting Bio and get to know her.

It was difficult to decide which was my favourite item, but I fell in love with this one. Imagine it centre stage in a sunroom - comfortable chairs, lots of pillows, a favourite book - with the sunlight beaming down and highlighting the lovely colors. It will fit with any style of decor.

We all have kids in our lives whether they are ours, or family's and or friends so I zeroed in on these adorable functional and heirloom pieces.
