Beautiful Birdhouses & Winner

Some of you know that I have been working away on a
 little birdhouse project over here.

Ohh... I love birdhouses. 
 They are so charming in the garden on a pole or in a tree.
I love to create a little home for the birds,
 a place for their seed and a sweet accent for the yard.

My favorites are old shabby vintage ones and I love to use them indoors too!
This is such a gorgeous vignette!!!

 Big or small~
 extraordinarily detailed or simple crafted 
birdhouses are charming no matter what.
So, In doing some research for my little bird house~
 I found some absolutely amazing homes for our feathered friends.
Some of these are simply incredible works of art!
