Eco Mobiles for an Artistic Home

Mobiles are a perfect way to freshen up your living space be it in or outdoors. They add an unexpected dimension and help you see your everyday in a new light. 

A good mobile will turn slowly but if the wind catches is in the right angle it will dance and change its visual perspective with each little twist.
Adding eco-friendliness to beauty is a passion of mine and that is why I especially wanted to share these mobiles. All of them include reusing, upcycling or recycling for which I applaud their makers. 

Let me start with a whimsical Italian artist, who creates not only mobiles and lavish chandeliers but also unique jewelry by cutting and fusing glass bottles. Ilaria of Metamorphosi is an inspiration in herself and a name to remember.

The second mobile is styled after Finnish traditions by Melissa of AMradio, Its geometric pattern is a lovely minimalist addition to any space.

Who wouldn't love to share home with a rabble of butterflies in all seasons! This butterfly mobile by ButterflyOrb is simply delightful to watch and I would love to have it in my living room, even though it is for the nursery.

Last but not least, look at this sea glass mobile that can also double as a wind chime. It is made by Rebecca of TheRubbishRevival with sea glass and driftwood found on the beaches of Santa Barbara, California.

Do you have a thing for mobiles? What are your favorites?


  1. I love the final one. We have a lovely bamboo one for outside.Rx


  2. I love mobiles, windchimes too. The butterfly one is especially lovely.

  3. Agree that mobiles change the scenery wonderfully. Wish we had a space to put one up but it was great to see your selection. Thanks for sharing them.

    Have been off for 3 weeks- thanks to my server deciding to upgrade their webmail platform without notice! Definite shock to the system. However, now we're back on line once more and normal service is starting to resume.

    Hope to see you at www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com sometime: your comments are always welcome - and helpful.

    Meanwhile all the best. Isobel

  4. Mobiles are so gorgeous; and what beautiful ones you've found, Sonya! I just love that sea glass one, and the butterfly mobile is beautiful, too. So awesome - great finds!

  5. Hey Sonya...I'm back. ;) I had a question for you, since you use Rafflecopter to host your giveaways. I want to use Rafflecopter to have a giveaway on my blog, but I was wondering if the widget allows you to choose your own winners or if it automatically chooses a random winner for you. I didn't see that answered anywhere on the website, so I figured you might be able to help me. :) Thanks!
