No Vacancy!

My little birdies have moved into a condo.

Last year when I made the paper bird houses they had a large area they called home.

After some thought they decided it was time to down size.

After all, they were no longer at that age where they laid eggs in their nest.

By no means did they compromise.  The place may be smaller, but it’s got lots of glitz.  Crystal chandies hang all throughout the branches.

Right next door they have a marvelous rec center.

They are the same old birdies that they were before.

They still like to decorate their homes. Each one to fit their own special personalities.

This birdie likes to soar.

This sweet thing wants you to know that she thinks her flowers are ever so tweet!

This one is a huge fan of glitz and bling. Can you see her sparkling up there on the rooftop?

This houses our neighborhood hippies.  Every neighborhood needs a bit of riff raff to keep them humble.  They display their flag and fringe proudly.

Only one little bird decided to stay living down town.

The point is, wherever you decide to hang your hat, (or in this case, your house).  Your home will be just exactly what you make it to be. I’m sure it will be as warm and cozy as you.

I have a couple of blog friends who are seeing changes in where they live.  Hope this brings them cheer!

Don’t forget to come back and share what helps fill you cup with “Share Your Cup Thursday”.

Hugs,

Jann
