I think I'm in love....

Sorry, I've been quiet ........ I had an idea........

And just let me apologize now for all the pics I'm about to show you:)

Earlier this week, I went to the library and got a few books on Real scale birdhouses.... I wanted to make something more complex.... and needed some ideas. In another post I'll show you the books I got.... But for now.... I want to show you this.....

The idea came from a book, but I have no clue how to convert measurements, so the design is mine. I ABSOLUTELY Love this birdhouse. I love the color of it.... I love how the aging technique worked out...

Doesn't it look like it's been outside forever........

There's lots of layers of paint in this... Lots of sanding, and lots of Love!

However, when I was making it, I forgot I was doing it for a dollhouse, and thought about how it would be in real life, So I put it on a post.....

But have no fear! I made another one on a stand, just have to do the finishing touches on it and it should get listed sometime this weekend:)
**I plan on listing my new 'pink' houses, too this weekend, just don't know if I should sell them as groups or individually. I also made a few shadow boxes... painted them brown, and now can't figure out if I should age them, or leave them so other people can paint them they way they want them painted.... Any suggestions welcome:)
Alrighty then.... I got a birdhouse to finish.......
Happy Friday:)

Until Next Time....

One word, Awesome! If you weren't holding it you wouldn't be able to tell it is miniature, it looks like it's been standing in the garden for decades.
