Spring is coming, I know it. The birds are back, tweeting and singing all day long outside my window. I love it- even though it's still snowing off and on, singing birds are a sure sign of warm weather and green grass to come.

So I had to make a birdhouse. For the bluebirds that I made up all by myself.

Danny had the idea to put the leaves on the roof in patches. I wanted to tile them like shingles, but they look much better this way.

And some pretty spring blooms...

I had a remnant of some white with black wood grain fabric from Ikea. I dyed it brown- I love how dark it came out. And I lined the inside of the house with a cute brown/green/blue striped fabric BUT you can't really see it. At all. Oh well.

Now, where to put such a cute little house?

I'm contemplating putting this and future birdhouses in the shop... what do you think? Yea or nay?
