This House is for the Birds

I hadn't planned on posting more
than once this week, but I took
these pictures this morning and
thought, 'Why not?'

 This is another one of our collaborations 
(my husband the builder, and me the artist). 

This is probably
my favorite bird house that we've
made together. 

I think it's because the design
is the funkiest he's made so far, and
I'm all about the funkier the better. 

It also makes me think I'm sort
of weird as an artist, because I 
love color clashes. 
(as is obvious by my pieces). 

Sometimes it's intentional,
and sometimes it's just because
I have to use whatever paint
I have on hand. 

Either way, I try and make 
it work and am usually 
pleased with the outcome. 

Thank you for visiting
and saying hello. 



  1. You ALWAYS make it work, Terri! You have such a gift with color.
    And compliments to your hubby on his skill and creativity!

  2. Thank you Chris! I can confidently say, it always works for me. It's nice to know there's one other person that concurs. haha

    And thank you on behalf of my husband. I'll pass along the compliment.

  3. You are amazing! And your hubby has talent-incredible talent. This is superb Terri.

    1. Oh Debra, thank you so much. That means a lot.

      It's funny, my husband would tell you (anybody) he knows nothing about art. I'm with you. He's got gift that's a secret to him.

  4. Wow!!! That birdhouse is something else Terri! I love it!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Fabulous colours and patterns and beautifully crafted!
