The birdhouse my Dad built for my Mom

I thought I would share a picture of the birdhouse that my Dad made for my Mom. Teddy also happened to be standing by it. My Dad has Lupus and this project gave him some therapy when he went back into remission from a bad Lupus attack he had. He also made another one for my Mom's high school friend. The high school friend actually had the plan and asked my Dad to build it for her. He is very proud of this birdhouse and the accomplishment and he should be! Way to go Dad!

That's really beautiful. Lovely setting, too.

Sherri, what a great birdhouse! What kind of bird uses it?

Sherri said...

Mary, my dad said he has seen the wrens go in it and the bluebirds. I'm surprised about the bluebirds!

We have been trying for years to get bluebirds close to the house, those dang starlings roost them out! This year we finally have some nesting in one of those birdhouses you make in woodshop, you know, not quite square! Probably was way too crooked for the starlings! :D

BeeUTeeFull! :)

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
