Thread: Bird houses, Need your help

    Bird houses, Need your help

    Can't remember who did the artical about this shape of a Bird house but I liked it. Doing them his way was to leave the bottem of the houses rounded with nothing hanging down. What do you guys like? I did what I could to put a design on them but I just don't know if I like it. Do you prefer rounded smooth or stuff on bottom?

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    I liked them all! In fact, having various designs would make me want to buy one of each so you would in fact sell more that way!

    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.

    Dennis those are just to cool. I like them both ways but like to put a little acorn on the bottom. Since I have been turning the acorns they have really sold at Christmas. I have a order for 9 of them to take with me to North Carolina that have cardinals on them. I do get my birds from Michael's. Here are some with the acorns on the bottom.
