This birdhouse is just Adorable! The attention to detail,such as a latch painted on door,is just awesome! Patchwork colors are just perfect. Special details like drainage holes,and details on how it was painted just add to make this a very talented and great seller. Thank you!

It was purchase as a Christmas gift for our daughter-in-law. She loved it. She wished the horizontal stick was a longer so the little birds could sit outside the house where she could watch them. The artist who painted bird house, is so talented, Beautifully painted.

About

We feature gourds of several designs that will last for years and can become family heirlooms.

After living overseas a number of years, and not being allowed to work, I revived my interest in crafts to help keep busy when my husband was away for days at a time.
When we returned to the USA, I continued that interest and started doing craft shows with a number of different crafts. Then a friend suggested I take a class involving gourd crafts, which I did, and the rest is history. For several years I did shows, and also had craft booths in several craft malls around the country when they were at their height of popularity.

After a few years of success, I began having problems with my vision - cataracts in both eyes. Because I am diabetic, my dr. would not do surgery until they got much worse, because of the risk. Unfortunately, it took several years to get worse, and I quit painting gourds and doing crafts, because I wasn't able to do the detail work to my satisfaction.

With my vision getting worse and worse, I contacted my dr. to see if I could now have the surgery. To my delight, he said my eyes were healthier than he had ever seen, except for the cataracts, and minimal risk for the surgery. I had both eyes done, and voila! I can now see almost perfectly. So I started painting again, set up a store on ebay, then decided to check out Etsy, which a friend told me about. I set up my store last fall, and have added a lot more products in the past could of months, hoping for a very successful holiday season.
