~White Wednesday # 152~

I had always wished that our property had an old barn on it, but it didn't.  One year shortly after we had moved here my husband surprised me with a barn birdhouse instead and I have cherished it for many years.

It started out with red barn wood that he had salvaged from one of his Uncle's old falling down barns.  Over time sitting outside it started to deteriorate so a couple years ago he patched it up for me and it got a new "white" paint job.  I used to have it sitting on a stump in front of our house, but now it resides on a chippy post so it can be moved easily.  Enjoy!  xoxo K. 

My 16 year old son is taking wood shop at school and surprised me recently with this little guy.  I thought it was so sweet of him since he knows I love birdhouses.  I added this number 8 I had lying around because his birthday is on the 8th:-)

My feature for May is going to blow all you chippy white lovers away.  It is none other than Glenn and Joe over at Curious Boys.  Ever since they started playing along with WW I've been hooked  and I know you will be too.  Here is just a sampling of what they have in their shop and home.
