If I was a bird...

I would live here...


and invite all my friends in...


to my cozy little house.





This cedar shake birdhouse was made on the weekend by hubby, and I painted and decorated it today. I found the lichen while taking Otis and Riley for a walk this afternoon. It's also adorned with moss that hangs from the trees down here in the south. Another item for my etsy shop! By the way, you can use this inside for a decorative piece or hang it outside for our dear feathered friends.

I like it.
I always look forward to what you will do with the little gems coming out of the space.

Donna,
Sometimes I think I will just bring a pebble, stone, or rock and see what it looks like when you get done with it.

It's so pretty! I think I'd opt for letting the birds nest in it :o)
