Thrifty Birdhouse!

Look what my eldest daughter found for me when she was out & about thriftin'!

A sweet little hand painted blue-roofed whimsical birdhouse!
With birdhouses painted on it, too!

My youngest was also over today helping me garden & surprised me with a nice cutting
of some of our wildflowers placed in my trusty, rusty watering can.

She never said a word, but when I went out to water my potted plants I found them
sitting prettily on my potting table. She is thoughtful like that...she KNEW I would find them!


As like my daughters, these two things are completely different, yet go together well.


They work nicely in this nice shady corner of our outdoor shady
 "Zen Room" that my DH built a few years ago!

Thank you for your visit today and giving me an opportunity to share my nest!

  1. Such sweet, thoughtful gifts from your daughters! Love the photos, too, Michele.

  2. I love your birdhouse, Michele! How nice of your daughter to think of you while she was out and about. It makes for a lovely vignette with the flowers in the watering can. The blue of the flowers looks very much like the blue on the roof of the birdhouse. What a happy coincidence!

  3. Love the birdhouse your daughter found for you. The watering can is perfect for the surprise wild flowers. You have wonderful daughters. Lucky you!!! Lots of love!

  4. Sounds like you have two very thoughtful daughters Michele. How sweet they bought brought you surprises and both gifts look perfect for your post.
