Old and Beat Up Makes for my Favorite Birdhouse

I collect birdhouses.  I am obsessed with love birdhouses.  My favorite birdhouse of all is the most beat up, rickety thing I own.  I found this years ago from Natalie at Sparrow.  (LOVE her stuff!!)  She is one of the regulars at the BarnHouse Boys' sales.



For awhile I had it outside, but with our extreme weather conditions, it was getting to the point of having enough character.  :)  

I cleaned it and cleaned it and brought it inside. 
  I love the perches and the worn wood on the sides and top!

 I needed to put it some place where it wouldn't get bumped, since the wood is so fragile now.  I don't think our old, fatty cat can get up there!

Thanks for coming by!  I appreciate your visits and comments!

I am linking to the following parties:



  1. I dedicated my upstairs hallway to my love of birds, so I completely get why you love birdhouses! Your yard looks so nice with all of your flowers blooming. I bet you can't wait for Spring!

  2. I love bird houses! And birds.
    I have them all over my home. I'll share them sometime. For me, the older, the more weathered, the better! I totally get it ;)

  3. I don't blame you for loving it, it is a great piece!

  4. the old beat up wood! Always the best.

  5. I love it too! I wouldn't want anything to happen to it, so glad you found such a great place for displaying it and keeping it safe!

  6. Hi Pam--Thanks for bouncing by my place! :)

    I really love your birdhouse! Do you think that using a deck sealer like Thompsons would help the fragile state of the wood?

  7. Hi Pam,

    I adore your birdhouse. It's so different from the ones I've seen around here. Your cabinet display is wonderful. So many cute looking birds and such.
