This is so fun. I also enjoy this,especially in the winter when times are slower. Thanks for sharing. You always speak of and show us the neatest stuff along with some of the persons. Have a great day my friend!!!😀
You too, Levi.
Have a lovely day. Hope the weather is good.
We went through two hot days and now it’s a little cool again. I like the cool.

I’ll be wanting to hear how it went!
I will tell you if anything exciting occurs. 😀
Thanks Cynthia. They are lovely bird homes. We have talented craftspeople in this area who make similar creations.
Such talented people!
What fascinating talent! These little houses are so pretty. I can’t stop looking at them; just do cleverly designed!
Thanks, Susan. They have the same impact on me.
Beautiful, Jean is very talented! I love the double birdhouses! 🙂
Wish I had wings and could perch awhile in these quaint little houses.
What a great idea!
Love them! 🙂
So very charming. 🙂
They really are.
