    Mini Birdhouses

    I was so happy a few days ago when the director of the art gallery called me and said all the new barn wood style birdhouses I brought down are sold. Didn't get picture taken as I was in a rush to get more birdhouses like these in this post.

    All of the first 30 I took down sold. The director of the gallery told me that she needed 10 more to fill orders she has. So I have been working my tail off to get 20 more down there. I finished them up late last night (11 pm) and took them down this morning right away.

    I have also been asked by a friend of mine who saw the birdhouses at the gallery to bring some down to her floral and craft store. So now out to the shop and make a dozen more as she said she wanted a dozen. She also wants some of my other turnings to display and sell. We agreed on a 70/30 split.

    Congrats Bernie!!!....You do beautiful work and deserve the praise and the rewards!

    The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. Tomorrow I will finish up the 12 but think I need to make a few more for a reserve.
