I Love Bird Houses

Have I ever told you that I love bird houses? They just make me happy when I see them. I have quite a collection of them in my home. Now that my patio cover is up, I will also be able to put some of them outside as well. A couple of years ago, I bought this bird house from Michael's. It was unfinished and I knew that I wanted to paint it. But my usual procrastination and uncertainty kept the darn thing in the cupboard, undone. Well, I got inspired a couple of weeks ago and got started. I stamped the flowers and the bee and free handed the rest of the artwork. I was inspired by the colors that I am going to be painting inside my house over the next few months.
The kitchen will be about the same green as the top of the house and the leaves and stems. Then there will be red accents throughout. In fact, I just recently got a Kitchen Aid Mixer in red. I have wanted one of those mixers for years!
As I get rooms painted, I will share pics of my new, pretty spaces.
