Homes for the Birds

I found two classy looking birdhouses hanging in a tree last weekend.  They remind me of the houses I photographed last year in some of our historic neighborhoods.  They have that mellowed with age look.































I think they are very appealing in a vintage sort of way.  I wonder if they are well used.

When it comes to building birdhouses some people have great imaginations.

I agree and also find them very attractive. Can't really explain that but it's probably why I like older Victorian style homes.

They ARE attractive, and they look like they're still functional, unlike the "distressed" birdhouse that Ellen blogged about a while ago:

I love the old weathered look of these two birdhouses. Maybe they were starter homes for the birds just starting out.

These look still shipshape!

I like them both! I have a couple of birdhouses, but I'm a little selfish and keep them inside.

Hello Sharon
I saw these two photographs and really liked them, so I thought I must stop and leave a comment.
I'm sure I will visit your blog again soon.

All the best Jan

I'm a huge fan of vintage Sharon.. I can see these two being occupied by trendy bird couples ☺
