    A couple of birdhouse ornaments

    Here's a couple of ornaments I made last weekend. One is a walnut top and maple bottom. The other is an apple top and cherry bottom. Thanks for looking.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Jay, the wife picked them up at AC Moore for me. I've seen the spot at Michaels before, but it always seems they are out.

    Those look great, John. I especially like the maple and walnut one. Great lines to it.

    Nice looking birdhouses John. Really well done.

    Jay I get mine from Michael's and Hobby Lobby. I have never seen any there that are flat. Also get them from Craft Peddler which is a local craft store. She has a good variety.
