Since I bought the bird house / box (mentioned here) I have thought about how to decorate it. I’ve found lots of inspiration, and I know you all like birds to, right?

So here is some great bird spotting places:

Crafty Bird House Inspiration

(update: cursive is links that is expired/leads to websites that no longer excist)

  • Mary Engelbreit’s birdhouse
  • A pink house by artist Laura Dean
  • The artist Nina has made a fabric bird house (it’s actually a tea pot warmer)
  • And at Meggiecat I found some vintage embroidery patterns
  • And lots of bird pictures and bird houses too! I found one of the bigger bird houses adorable, and were also a whole page of pictures of bird nests which I enjoyed looking at.
  • And who could help falling in love with Alicia Paulson’s Birdie Cagelets on Flickr? I love them so much.
  • HGTV had a decoupage project that was very cute
