My Bling, Bling Birdhouses

Hooray time to show you all what I have been working on the last week and a half. I started off by putting these two together (hammer, hammer, drill, saw and lots of glue)

to make this -

and I added this one -

Now this is what it looks like all together
I added a few butterflys and dragonflys, I wasn't able to find any birds though. The stand I already had but it needed adjusting (saw, saw, hammer, hammer) and some holes for the flowers (drill, drill, drill).

I even added window boxes with flowers, sorry the photos aren't clearer but the light wasn't to good to take photos today.

I can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with, this one has a lovely home just inside my front door. Thank you to Karla and Beth for hosting I had so much fun.


Oops! silly me only just realised that the "bling your Birdhouse" party was not till the 27th March so I am a little early, like a month, oh well I hate being late anyway.

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. I very much appreciate your kind words. I saw the incredible football-themed work space you created in your son's closet, and I LOVE it! I've gotten the same response when recommending removing awkward closet doors, but the end results speak for themselves!
All the Best to you!

Hi Linda, thank-you so much for your kind words you posted on my Blinged Birdhouse, loved doing it. But unlike you, you clever lady, making it from scratch.... I bought mine for a few dollars to bling, I thought I wouldn't have enough time to start from scratch, Your Bird house are just gorgeous. I also wanted to say thank-you for finding me, I'm so glad I came here, love the story about golden teddy, and home and garden is breath taking how wonderful is that garden...ahooooo, and you don't have to worry about your photo's they are crystal clear. Also the the chandelier in your family room, is the same one I have in my kitchen, great posting Linda I will be come back here again, if poss can I add you to my blog roll.

I had noticed that only an hour ago, we will party on our own until the party arrives or catches up, what can I say Aussies gals don't like to be late, allways early or on time...hee, hee. But I
have to tell you I thought it was yesterday Wed 27th, and US 27th today not next mth, so do I not post anything for a mth or repost it on 27th next mth, oh well.
And yes you can add me and thank you for letting me add
