Spring Nesting

These are pictures of one of the birdhouses that I decorate. They are decorated with papers, paint, quotes, bird collage pics, and then beeswax. You can't really see the beeswax here, but it adds a nice touch! This is a large one (9" tall). I also do small ones and even smaller ones that are windchimes. They are fun to do and were very popular last year when I was a member of an artist co-op.
"Sometimes you look into a mirror and can't remember what age you are. Somehow you expect to see a 12 year old or an 18 year old looking back at you."
from the novel Intimacy by Hanif Kurelshi

Laura; beautiful birdhouses. Your wax application is so smooth and lovely. These are marvelous with your quotes; I know 'cause I am the proud owner of one of your birdhouses!
