    I guess I'll be painting birdhouses for awhile.

    My son just got an order to make a couple hundred door jams in his cabinetry shop. Having so many nice pieces of mostly primed wood left he turned some of them into birdhouses and brought them home for me to paint.



    I still have to prime the edges and decorate them. I'll probably wait until the winter to do the job. It will be a nice project for when the snow flies.

    That looks like so much fun! I'm inspired now.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Wow! My daughter would love one of those, she's such a bird nerd. Do you have an online outlet for them?
    Everything is always OK in the end. If it's not, then it's not the end!

    Thanks everyone. My son knows I can't resist a project and throwing out perfectly good scraps of wood is unthinkable. Ronni we have a lot of big trees in out yard and I'm going to hang all of them. I might even personalize a couple for gifts at Christmas.

    How nice to have a project you and your son are working on together.
    It's nice that you have a lot of trees to hang them in
    so you don't have to let go of them if you become attached.
    You'll have a lot of happy little baby birds to enjoy come spring!
