My Bird House

When my father-in-law retired many years ago his family knew he would need a hobby to keep him busy as he wasn't a man who liked to sit for long. His sons pitched in and bought him a scroll saw. He loved it and spent hours making items to give away to family and friends. This little bird home is one he made for us. I painted it and it proudly hangs in our Master Bedroom now.

I think of all the fun times we had at my in-laws whenever I pass by this cute little home. 

 How we miss them...they were wonderful parents and raised three fantastic sons.

Cherish every day with your love ones. 

 Too soon they are gone and only the memories are left.

Wish you could join me for a cup of coffee...I would love to sit and chat with you. Whereever you are... please sit down and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and listen to the birds as they go about making their nests.

Enjoy your Spring!

Please join me for:

  1. Hi Sandy, I agree with you so much. Sometimes I think I spend way too much time in the past,and that causes a person to become depressed. I don't want to think of the future as that gives me anxiety, so I try hard to stay in the present, but that doesn't always work! Love your birdhouse and your spring banner. xo

  2. Would love to join you for that cup of coffee. Just put the pot on. I love your bird house. Yes, all too soon things can change, but what treasures in the memories and something like this little birdhouse. Going to fill up the mug, I will certaily be back. Have a great weekend. Blessings.

  3. I'll join you for that coffee.
    Love your birdhouse. A dear friend gave me a decorated one as a gift.
    We are very lucky to have lots of birds visiting our feeders, LOVE watching and listening to them. Very special.
    My late FIL used to decorate lots of items for friends and family. Yes, treasure those you love whilst they are still with you.
    Have a lovely weekend.
