think they give my primitive decor such character! You can display them on cabinets, window sills, and smaller benches tucked in a corner of the room...sooo many ideas, just endless. I do pick up some bird houses at sales but the ones I have inside are made by a friend. If I find a picture in a magazine, she will build it and half the price and no shipping charges. The white house on the left has unique features, not something you would find in a shop. If you love houses,like I do, I can hook you up with my source to make your favorite piece. Drop me a line at email@example.com. These houses are not out door proof but she does make bird houses with old wood that can be kept outside all year around!
