I found this little birdhouse on the Collections, Etc. site. I just fell in love with it. Isn't it so cute? I just had to have it. I tend to pick up a lot of cute little things on this site. I always find something fun for my garden.
So I put it in the cart and shopped around to hit my $40 for free shipping. I found a lantern and a solar light for my American flag and I was all set. I hit "Check Out" and something awful happened! The site said my birdhouse was SOLD OUT! How could such a thing happen?
So I searched the net and found the house at a lot higher price. Not good. On a whim, I went back to the Collections, Etc. And this time I checked out, birdhouse ordered. Weird. Did they find another box in the back or something? Either way, I was just happy to get my darling little birdhouse.
Being a miniaturist, I could not just leave it all unpainted. What bird would want a house with style but no color? So I stained the shingles and gave the feathery abode a fresh coat of paint. Then I mounted it on a tall pole. The opening for the birds are on the side, in case you are wondering. The feeder pole also has two Shepard's hooks for humming bird feeders. Everyone is happy.
This was a lot easier than doing a dollhouse because I didn't have to do the inside. I'll leave that to the birds, as they say.
