The Neverending Bling your Birdhouse Party



Yeah it has finally arrived the right date for the party. Since some of you are probably sick of looking at the pictures of my birdhouses this past month I had a creative urge yesterday to make another one. Luckily I had most of the items already at home. So here it is -




The stand I picked up at the dump recycle shop for $5 and the cage came from one of those $2 shops I have had them sitting here for a while but didn't quite know what to do with them.







It looks much nicer in person then in the photos, why is it that every time I want to take a photo inside it is a dull and overcast day the light is a little better outside.






I had trouble finding a nest to fit inside since the doorway is so narrow. I love the glittery eggs inside I wonder what type of bird must of laid them?






Now if you would like to see the birdhouse that I made almost from scratch and posted last month because I got my months mixed up just scroll down a couple of posts.






I still have my Beachy's craft challenge to finish, I just can't seem to get the creative juices flowing on that one yet but it will happen I hope. Can't wait to see all of the lovely Blingy Birdhouses! Now if you would like to see more birdhouses other girls have made go to Beth or Karla's blogs.



Oh and by the way you are suppose to mention if you want to swap, or sell your birdhouse, sorry to say but I am going to be very selfish here and keep all of mine LOL, I'm just not good at letting go.



Cheers,







UPDATE Since posting my birdhouse I have discovered who laid those beautiful glitter eggs here she is but be very quiet as she is quite shy.

Who else but a glittery bird would lay glitter eggs.


Don't forget to check out my other houses if you have not already seen them at the bottom of this page.

Thanks for stopping past my blog! Yes i did have a quick thought that I could do that with my pot, but then my husbands face was in mine and I laughed to myself as he would have gone crazy if I did that. He's a party pooper!!! That birdhouse is definitely too cute to part with :)

Hey Linda!
Thanks for dropping by at my blog! I love what you have done with that birdcage (2 dolllars? I have to emigrate..) and of course I scrolled down to see your lovely birdhouses as well. You're so right in keeping them all!
It was nice to meet you! That's one of the most rewarding things of such an event, I think.
Have a nice Sunday!
