Birds of a Feather.

We are happy to be joining the White Wednesday party at Faded Charm Cottage.
Click the button and take a look!

Yoo Hoo!  Anyone home?  Hmmmm, no answer?
Well, can you beat that?  I know that darn Sylvia is home today...
I saw her fly in that side door just 10 minutes ago!
Will you look at that filigree bracket, solid brass.  Whatever happened to good old wrought iron? 
If she thinks she can just ignore me simply because I need a wing with the Church Fashion Show.
Then she has another think coming!
I must have the use of her house for the Thank You Luncheon.
All the work these starlings darlings are doing...of course, mostly me and under my guidance...but...still..
it's only decent manners to thank them.  Hummph!
You know...she has been all hoity-toity since she moved into
this beautiful place...if you like that kind of ostentation.
I mean...a purple glass knob for a perch, really!
My goodness it's everywhere you look!
Custom made with original barnwood.  Lordy!
You'd think the rest of us live in outhouses the way she carries on.
Is that some kind of debris coming out of that window?
How rude!...shhhh! I hear they're new money...
You know what they can put lipstick on a pigeon...but, it's still a pigeon.
Sad, but true.
Is that her in that attic window?  I just feel her beady little eyes on me!
She'll be shooting off that beak of hers complaining to everyone with ears
about my coming here just begging for her help.
What I go through in the name of Charity!
I'll just have to swallow my pride and hop to it!

This is just one of the many gorgeous birdhouses
my sister Laurie has created.
This one resides in Mom's garden.
Laur uses authentic barnwood, vintage hardware and found objects
 to create truly one of a kind works of art.
