Quinoa is a healthy grain that was an important staple of the ancient Incas. I kept that bit of history in mind while designing this adobe inspired abode. The front of the box already had a window to view the product....so why not work that into the structure? It made a perfect entry way. The Hacienda's lean to roof is decorated with purple and pink ball fringe that came from a previous job I had designing dog accessories. A branch was the perfect perch for this rustic looking Bird house. I can picture this living happily in your home, on a table or shelf with Cacti and succulents in clay pots.

I’ve constructed a whole collection of decorative bird abodes called CROW’S NEST. They were 1st conceived about 5 years ago, Christmas time. I needed to make some seasonal decorations for a grocery store window with no budget. Being a resourceful person, I started thinking about what was plentiful, pretty and priced just right? The answer was all those colorful cartons piled high in the stock room. As a result, I went on a Holiday candy and cookie spree, emptying ( I confess, by eating ) dozens of boxfuls.

Give this girl too much sugar, a pair of scissors, a little origami skill, and a glue gun…… Voila! I hatched some Budget Budgie Abodes.

These decorations were so well received that customers wanted to buy them and a few were actually stolen ( some say that is a compliment). My fellow employees asked to place their names on a list as potential homes for the creations, once the season was over.

Since they were such a big hit, I decided to make more bird houses, this time collecting boxes of items I used in my daily life.
