Countdown to Christmas Day 17

And it came about while they were there, the days were complete for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her first-born son; and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room in the inn. Luke 2:6

While this is not an inn it is a house! And there is plenty of room for birdies to nest their babies!

On a trip to Minneapolis I stopped at a wonderful lss, Picture This, in Eau Claire, WI. When I checked out I spied this adorable birdhouse sitting on the counter.

It was only about 6" tall and as cute as can be. I asked about it and found out that the owners husband had made the little birdhouse for her to cover with papers and ephemera.

They were offering this one as a class---not while I was there--so they allowed me to take pics---told you they were a great store!

I purchased my house at Michael's and it is quite a bit bigger. I cut the papers--Graphic 45--to fit the various parts and glued it on with Scotch Tacky Adhesive. Glue dotted on the ephemera and added the cute little bird from ADORNit's Nancy Jane line.
