Birdhouse Before and After

Hello, Bloggy Friends, I'm joining Susan today for "Met Monday" Please visit her for more.


I had two ornamental birdhouses that really were blah or didn't fit my decor..............so




I decided to paint them red (of course :), and think they turned out pretty good.



Mr. and Mrs. Dove are in the market for some new digs, so welcome to "Bird House Hunters"





House #1 is larger, and Mr. Dove is partial to it. "Look, honey! It even has a "man cave"





But Mrs. Dove is liking house #2 because "It's so cute and cozy!" So.......



WHICH ONE DID THEY CHOOSE?..........

They chose....................................

(insert cheesy music here)




House #2 because Mr. Dove is such a gentleman and let Mrs. Dove have her way. :)
Thanks for visiting me today. I loved having you!
