I cut one of the gourds to make a birdhouse the other day.
She insisted on having these photos taken under the blue led light on my magnifier...She seems to think it makes things look exotic...Sometimes I question her
This morning I cut a couple of the seed pods and at the same time, noticed that some of the other seed pods looked kind of like roofing material.
They look like birdhouses that had a bad hair day....
Almost instant birdhouse, if you don't start messing with decorating.
There were some Sharpie pens laying in plain site. That led to experimenting. I can't say that they look that good...but it was a fair try.
Tessie latched on to the one that I decorated first.
With that one, I cut the gourd at two angles for a pitched roof. Then I simply cut some embossed railroad shingles to fit.
On that one, I left a tail on the hanger and coiled it into a spiral.
Of course, anything with a gold spiral on the roof would be to Tessie's liking...That got me out of the dog house.
Thank goodness. Now I can breath and go look for my thread when Tessie isn't around. She did a good job of hiding it...If she doesn't tell me where it is, I can't finish weaving her rug. Let's see who holds out the longest. The rug maker or the rug receiver....
See you tomorrow.
