M Y little birdhouse.

I almost finished my birdhouse, made from Karen`s (My Desert Cottage) workshop on Artists Class ,only have to find a beautifull flower to the foot, but wanted to show it now.

I used an old beautifull chair`s leg, that I mounted my very small birdhouse on.
Then found a piece of wood in the work room of my use for foot.

The bird, is not too clever, as he builted the nest in the opening of the house!!!!
The beautifull piece under the nest is an old iron handle,that I painted white, and under that placed a prisme.

I altered and rusted a piece of copper ,all shiny and new,-now as if it was there for ages...

Then mounted a piece of old wood cutting.The leg was beautifull old, so I just painted all the rest to look alike. Karen Thanks for a wonderfull tutorial, I so enjoyed trying to do this,even it was not possible to get all the materials here in Denmark.

This is just a little teaser, something packet and sent today, to a very sweet lady, who needs to be surprised herself,too--lol.(photo a little blurry ,but it`s ok, for now)

It is raining like it will never stop here, this evening,- so our dry ground, will feel well tomorrow.
I hope you are all feeling well too, and sending love and hugs.

Guten Morgen, liebe Dorthe, wow, das ist ein sehr schönes Vogelhaus! Das Stuhlbein ist perfekt dafür und Du hast einen tollen Shabbylook hinbekommen. Das Kupferdach sieht auch super aus. Dieses Projekt hat bestimmt viel Spaß gemacht.
Da wird sich ja demnächst jemand über einen Deiner wunderschönen Puppen freuen!

Viele liebste Grüße und ein schönes Wochenende,
