It was a nice day so these two birdhouses took a trip outdoors.
This birdhouse is taking me out of the Beatrix Potter era and into the ‘Hippie’ era. Wouldn’t you know, it’s one of my daughter, Kylee’s favorites.
I had two of my grand daughters over night when I made it.
After I put the fringe and the crochet flowers on I told my 12 year old g.d., Taylor that it looked like a hippie birdhouse.
She replied, “grandma, I don’t think there are hippie birds.”
I answered, “oh Taylor, I bet there are.
She said, “oh yeah, those birds with that fluffy thing on top.” Made a believer out of her.
Notice the music note? Can’t you hear those beatniks in there strumming some instrument?
I decided that no hippie home would be complete without a name. There you have it. . . ‘Hippie Haven’.
This one belongs to a clepto bird.
You know how birds gather the most random things for their nests. That’s what’s going on here. The picture is a little washed out so it’s hard to tell. There is an old heart earing, a silver ring, another rose, and a little bow.
Tomorrow I will feature the last birdhouse and the completed project.
Till then, don’t forget to feed the birds!
