First one just for fun.
I used to make and sell birdhouses. It all started with this simple little blue birdhouse, I made for fun one weekend.
This one was a duplex!!
Then I decided to make birdhouses that were replicas of places I had photographed, or peoples homes, cabins, wineries, barns, bed & breakfasts, and on and on. This was in my spare time when I wasn't at my "real" job writing advertisements for a real estate company. I kept track for quite awhile as to where they went. From Alaska down to Texas, up and down the east coast and in between. It was great fun as I painted little scenes in the windows, carved logs for the log cabins and actually used stones on the stone house ones. My signature was my little Bichon Frise peaking out one of the windows. I decided to share a few pictures of these birdhouses after visiting Kim's blog. She has made a birdhouse out of old jewelry. It is fantastic. So go take a little peak. You will be delighted. Also check out her dolls. She is one talented lady and her music will make you want to dance.
