Something new I’m experimenting with but I know what you’re thinking; maybe I should pay more attention to my lawn! Hey, I’m killing it on purpose.

Mansard roofs, Eiffel towers and fleur-de-lys are all that give this birdhouse series a French flair. The one above is bone dry or in it’s green phase. Those below are bisqued. Oh, it takes some time to ceramic.

Every evening, almost, I hear the hoot of great horned owls and I’ve counted four separate birds in the tall trees around the house. It’s dreamy. Watching the Amy Winehouse documentary, not so much, but still, she is a sad inspiration.
