Birdhouse That Captures Vintage Flea Market Style

This is one of my favorite's out of the hundreds I have created and sold. Not only do we want to live in our dream house, I am certain our little feathered friends want that dream too. I have collected through the many years a number of old chairs, tables, fence posts, columns, house siding, and anything salvageable I can get my hands on. I love the many old cast off items friends, family, and friendly strangers will give me. To their surprise they are moved with what they thought was junk, and now has transformed into prime real estate for our nesting friends.

I must add that I build them with the best home sidings that will certainly endure the test of time. I then add the finishing touches to their appeal by stacking up layers of old picture frames; always using the best of hardwoods, for the future of this garden heirloom piece I know it will become. I started making them in the 1980's evolving from one Style after another. If you are anything like myself, you will pick out your favorite one for inside the home, and leave to rest to the garden.

These are gorgeous. I can't believe you made the ferris wheel! I saw one at Anthropologie and was drooling over it. Yours is even prettier than the one they had.
