Toward the end of last year when I was browsing in my favorite thrift store, I saw a dirty little bundle of ribbon and what looked like a bird house. I got it for practically nothing and brought it home. I put it away until the new year. I meant to redo this bird house several months ago, but life has been a bit wonky. I’m finally doing it in August. I must apologize for not taking photos when I first got it. When I emptied the second bedroom for the new floor, my crafting supplies were stacked in the living room. My friend helped me move things and then we were sitting across the room from each other (safe distance) for a while. I absent mindedly picked up the dirty mess and started taking it apart while we talked. When I first picked it up, my friend Vickie asked why I even bought it. It was covered in lots of dirty sheer “white” ribbon. I think it must have been bows maybe originally but at that point it was lots and lots of loops and glue all over the bird house. As I picked it off Vickie suddenly said now I like it. She couldn’t stand the ribbon. I’m not one to waste anything and I handwashed the ribbon to use on something else. The bird house had been hand painted and lots of details were glued on. I liked the bird house except for the roof. The roof was a green/peach striped tape with 2 additional details glued on. I really felt there was too much green with the house body being solid green. I peeled the tape and details off.
