Today I am joining Alpha-Thursday for the first time. A girl needs to keep up on her studies, don’t you agree? My W word is WHAT
Is it a bird, or is it a light? That is the question I am asking myself.
You be the judge.
Labor Day weekend I asked hubby if he would help me install a bit of yard art that I had picked up over the summer.
He was more than willing to get it out of the garage.
Remember the pillar I bought when I went pickin? You can check it our here. http://jannolson.blogspot.com/2011/07/livin-my-american-pickers-dream.html That was an awesome $25 find.
Well, I picked up this birdhouse at a yard sale for $20. It had a T.J. Maxx price tag on the bottom of $50.
I knew that the birdhouse was a bit small, but oh well I had it. Let’s put them together. This is what I got.
At first I thought, hmmm; it is small but I don’t mind it. Suddenly, I realized every time I glanced it looked more like a lighthouse.
I can see it well from my family room window and from my upper level. The more I see it, the more I think lighthouse.
I toured my first lighthouse last Fall while vacationing in Door County, WI.
It was in the little town of Fish Creek.
I loved the history of it all.
So, whether it’s a bird or a light; I think the house upon the pole is a keeper.
Hey, guess that makes me the ‘lighthouse keeper’. lol! That is if it is a lighthouse.
Who knows, I may even put a light in it now and then.
We also put in these two smaller poles.
I loved the chippy white pole, so I just put a birdhouse on top. The other pole was stained brown. I decided to paint it tqs. blue. It’s hard to tell in the pic.
What can I say, “Love those poles”!
Hope that you’re getting some last minute projects done around your house.
Till next time, I’ll leave the light on!
