Where little birds live

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

  1. Hi Hanna,
    I got your comment about our ATC trade– let’s do it! Sorry it’s taken sooooo long! Would love to put together a package of goodies to send to you too– where’s your wishlist? Send me a note back and I’ll send my address :)

  2. Some lovely bird house ideas there! I think I will try a small patchwork wallhanging myself soon, thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Hi Hanna, thanks much for the fun feedback at Flickr re: my birdhouse collection! I pick them up at various craft and garden shops around town. Would be glad to send you a birdhouse of your own if you’re in need of one pronto. =)
