Houses for Toads and Birds

Thinking of spring and what I can make for the little garden creatures.  Thought I’d start out with some toad houses and bird houses.

My original idea was to top them off with old glass or brass door knobs, but after pricing the knobs on some of our junkin’ ventures, I decided that adding $15-25 just for the knob was not practical.  I found these cabinet door knobs at Hobby Lobby, at 40% off!  I think these knobs are perfect.

These are the little bird houses.  I couldn’t decide whether or not to decorate the house part.  In the end, I decided to leave them plain.

So it’s Monday and a holiday from the day job, so I’d better get on down to the studio and make more critter shelters.  The March arts & crafts shows will be here before we know it!
