Losing speed !

 Used to be I had two speeds, slooooow and granny.  Now it seems I only have granny, slooooow would be my new fast.  That is why I'm showing works in progress instead of in done. :)

some time ago I found three of these bird houses on clearance.  I finally started on them because I want to use them in a Valentine's display.
Maybe with a little boost they will be finished by Sunday.
Using very small ceramic tiles on this one, you can't really see but I have some pink heart tiles for the sides.  Trying to decide if I want to use porcelain flowers or just more tiles....
This is my new favorite red !   I had some tiny bricks from a dollhouse project so decided to use them.
Linking up with Beverly's Pink Saturday   hope you will stop by for a visit.  Thanks for
visiting me and until next time, ya'll bee sweet !

I love how they are progressing. They will be perfect in a Valentine display. I know what you mean about slowing down. How did I ever work and do all the things I did. Now I'm retired and I can't figure how the day passes so quickly.

These are adorable!

(And I'm not even a granny yet and my speed is slowing to granny more every day. Pathetic, aren't I?)

I hear you about sloooowww, I think the winter weather has a lot to do with that. Round about now, we need a shot of Spring. I am inspired by your bird houses. I have a bag of them I've accumulated over the years waiting for something to nudge me to action. I really like the way you used tiles...I will now go in search of cute tiles to incorporate with painting or papering the outsides of the houses.
Hope you're toasty wherever you are, Francie!

I know what you mean about heaters having trouble keeping the house warm. Southern homes are not insulated against such crazy cold weather. I love your site and the birdhouses. You are so talented.
