My Birdhouse

If I were a bird I know just the type of house I would like to live in.

One of them would be this one, which I was so fortunate to win from one of the sweetest 

little giveaways this side of Lake Ray Hubbard.



Carole at Garden Up Green is such a tremendous resource for Texas gardening and she 

just recently had a giveaway.

I entered, I won and we met at Hobby Lobby!!!

We chatted just like we had known one another for ever.

So fun.





I  have tried my Birdhouse in several different spots.

For now this charming Birdhouse, which is a perfect mix of rustic and feminine is 

tucked along side my happy geraniums and as you can see there is already a little Bird who 

has landed here.

Thank you Carole, so much!




My recent win has sparked an interest in Birdhouse's for me so I am sharing some creative 

and unique styles with you today.

Just look at this one with a penny roof.

Great way to recycle pennies...so clever.




Since we are Texans I am just thinking that this Cowboy Boot Birdhouse, would be a perfect 

fit for our backyard.








If you were a bird would you like this one???



I found this great website, for ordering Birdhouses.

They seem to be using recycled poly lumber milk jugs to make   Recycled Plastic Bird 

Houses.





Isn't this Rustic barn birdhouse sold on Etsy so nifty.



I will be spending the next ten days with my sweet family.

Thoughts of Home will post as usual, but other than that-this Mimi/Grammy is going to be

basking in the joy of family time.


Have a wonderful week my dears!

  9. Oh, I love all of these, Jemma, but if I was a bird, I'd have to spend time in that house with the green trim and flowers. It's darling. What a nice gift you received from your friend, and it looks nice there next to your sweet angel.

    Have a wonderful time away and enjoy your dear family, Jemma.

    love, ~Sheri

  15. Hello Jemma! Missed you so much! I miss you also on Instagram, but I can see you are totally happy basking in family fun! And the birds are starting to set up housekeeping in their homes! Love that rustic one and the penny roof house...how clever! We have one that is always occupied by wrens every year. It's so fun to watch them take in twigs to make their nests inside, then hear and watch the fledglings set for the sky.

    BLISS to you dearest! Anita

  29. All of those are fabulous bird houses! I went on my mini-birdhouse making kick a few years ago (my inventory is almost gone so it will soon be time for more!) That's a fun crafty time! They look so cheery in the spring. Hey, maybe I'll pull out my two remainders and tuck them into some of my indoor plant pots! After all, I AM allowed to keep them (and one was SUCH a favorite!)

    So glad you were a winner and lucky to meet up with a fellow blogger!

    Are you getting the happy edginess of spring? I'm getting giddy and it's hard to concentrate!
