A New Hand-painted, Thrifted Birdie House


During a thrift store excursion recently, something on a shelf called out to me.

It was a hand painted birdhouse.


The painting style is crackled.


The flower-covered house is very reminiscent of spring.


It's unique, too, and has a kind of southwest aura to it.




It was seven bucks.


At first, the birdhouse went back on the shelf but I returned, picked it up and bought it.

There are no regrets about that decision.


Looking at the little bird house makes me think of spring while outside feels like the Arctic Tundra.


WHAT MAKES YOU THINK OF SPRING?

You'll enjoy that birdhouse while waiting for Spring to arrive! I say buy what strikes you! If I put something back and still think about it, I know it's something I should take home. Your birdhouse is darling!

Glad you found a bright pretty! I don't dare think of spring yet...way too far away. Roast in the oven, flannel on, streets with black ice this morning...we still have not gotten a pretty snow.

I love that - how do they do the crack effect on the birdhouse? It is so pretty.

That is a winner. I love it.
I was in a snow storm to my husbands younger sister funeral who had cancer.

So right now nothing reminds me of Spring but your colorful birdhouse that is good. Thanks for the show of it.

Well it was 74 degrees here today...sunny and nice and I just got back from the neighborhood pool. What makes me think of spring? More days like this.

Love the birdhouse! I am still enjoying winter but bouquets of tulips make me think of spring.

What a cute birdhouse, Susan. I love all the colors, especially the turquoise. Can't think of spring yet, as I'm loving the winter with all the rain we've been having.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

The bird house is so sweet! :) Love the colors... indeed, remind me of spring!

I am not yet in a spring mood though, here in India no winter :)))
take care!
