Home For the Birds

A friend of ours asked us to make a birdhouse for her.  She was open to any design as long as it was painted yellow.  Hubby did the carpenter work and I was the designer.  I bought the brass hinge to make the door at a thrift shop.  I found the rest in my stash except the license plate which belonged to the recipient.   This was the first time I had tried twisting wire with a drill.  Actually, hubby did it, but I told him what I wanted done.  When he was through I arranged the limbs and roots the way I wanted them and he screwed the tree to the house.  Our friend was happy with it.  I hope the birds will be, too.
