My Rare One never ceases to amaze me with her artistic endeavours. One of her latest is creating miniature bird houses. She buys little unpainted wooden bird houses from Michael's, then meticulously paints them and handcrafts special miniature features to enhance them. The above photo shows her first four creations. She was on kind of a maritime kick at the time.
The next photo shows some of her miniature items in detail -- this seaside shed's ship's wheel, hinges, float and propeller! Don't they look realistic? The ship's wheel was made out of a yogurt container, the hinges were painted on the original plain door along with the board lines, the float is a marble with netting made of braided thread, and the propeller came from the bottom of a plastic Coke bottle.
Then she started creating miniature flowers! This birdhouse was made for her sister who loves to garden.
And now My Rare One has completed a special bird house just for me! I'll show it to you in Friday's post.
