Home Sweet Home For The Birds!

Good Evening Everyone!!

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend.

Today was my Hubby’s 41st Birthday.  So I have spent the evening with him.  What did we do??

Oh, WOW! Exciting Stuff!!

1st he had to work.  Then when he got home the excitement began!!!

We ran to Target and bought Season 4 of Criminal Minds. (You know how we love our TV DVD’s here in our home.)

Then we swung through Taco Bell drive through and grabbed Supper.  And spent the rest of the night on the couch!!!

I know… I know…

We are just PaRtY Animals!!!! LOL!!

Pretty pathetic, huh!! ';)

Oh, well…. I enjoy our pathetic little life! :)

divider07 I finally got around to taking the last photos of what I purchased from the Gypsy Caravan last week.

They were lawn items.

1st is this rod iron piece, which I love!!



And another bird house for outside.



I love buying birdhouses for my yard.

Here is my outside collection of them.


This one is attached to a pitch fork.
I have started painting my porch but Oopps! I guess you can tell I havent gotten to this sections yet. HeeHee!!
This is one of the down falls of having a large porch.
Having to paint it!! :(





This one desperately needs a new paint job!! Or it may be time to replace it.  Definitely has seen better days!


Here is what it looked like new.


And my favorite is this Huge one I bought in TN at the Longest Yard Sale!

This last photo isn't a bird house but it is a rod iron piece I bought last year at the Gypsy Caravan.



I hope you have enjoyed seeing my collection. :)

And yes, they are Home Sweet Home to some birds!!

Good morning Tammy - well your husband's birthday day/evening sounds just like how we would celebrate too! Nothing wrong with living your life like you want to and are comfortable with...that's what it's all about.

I so enjoyed your tour of the feathered friends homes - how cute are they.

Have a great day.

Looks to me like ya'll are BIG party animals like us. I just posted about my birthday and deciding to stay home instead of going out. It doesn't look like you have a pathetic life, it looks like you have a beautiful life and home, and enjoy being there.
I love all your finds, wins, and birdhouses.

Hi Tammy,

I LOVE your birdhouses. I seem to have a thing for them also. Sadly, I haven't even got mine out yet. I think we are going to try to get some outdoor stuff out today. Mind you the skies don't look to good...

I am so anxious and happy to participate in a swap with you. It will be fun...

I must go and check out these sites of patterns. I always love a good pattern.

Even though you are working today, have a good day :)

Hi Tammy~
I'm so glad you visited and signed up for my giveaway! I enjoyed reading your post today...I love birdhouses too, and have several handmade ones. I should write about them sometime. I also like your other garden art. I'm off to read your older posts.
Hope you have a great week!

Yes, it is black mulch! It is called beauty bark and we got it from Berkdells (Not sure if I spelled that right). They are located in Benton, Illinois!
