Birdhouse Whimsy

Hershey Gardens had a fantastic display of birdhouses.  I have a thing for birdhouses, they look so peaceful in the garden, and add just a touch of whimsy ~ so I took a bunch of birdhouse pictures. I won't bore you with them all, but here are a few of our favorites. 

Many of them had themes ~ how cute is this! It was Heather's favorite.

 I took this little caboose picture because I knew my hubby would like this one.

This was my favorite.  It reminds me of a birdhouse that a friend just gave me that's similar to our house.

This is mine.  My best friend gave it to us for our wedding anniversary (which is tomorrow!), and right now I have it sitting on our hearth :)

And just so you know that I am working on things, I finished my second pair of knitted socks!  With traveling, I've been doing mostly handwork.  I have some knitting going, and I've been busy preparing some more hand applique to carry along.  I'm getting ready to head out again on a trip to Lisa's house to be there for her, and watch Elsie while she and Cory go to the hospital and deliver Abby.  Cory is a Marine, and we feel so blessed to have him home and not deployed for the birth of this daughter! Busy, busy exciting times :)

PS ~ Don't forget to hop on over to the Project Quilting blog and vote for Elsie's Growth Chart.  Voting ends today, and if you leave a comment, you're in the drawing for a give away!

Enjoy the day!
