Our Birdie Real Estate

Welcome to our birdie paradise.

This artisan made house greets you
as you walk up to the entrance door.

Every year the chickadee's make their home here.
Two different clematis vines grow around it

I love this birdhouse overlooking the pool.
It came from "HomeGoods".

This is another "HomeGoods" find.
You can find wonderful things there.

Little wrens like the birdhouse by the rose arbor.

This hand-made church sits at the back
of the rose arbor.

I got this birdhouse at a craft show we
were doing.
It is hand-made in the USA and very charming.

Now this birdhouse is really special to me.

My hubby made it for me many years ago.
It was a Christmas present.

If you look carefully, you will see two
ornamental doves sitting on branches.

We purchased this rustic birdhouse from my friend
Carole Maynard of "maynardgreenhouse.blogspot.com".

It looks lovely when the rose "New Dawn" drapes its
flowers over it!

We call this one " The skinny Minnie".
Wrens love this condo.

This is another birdhouse I bought at a
craft show, also hand-made in the USA.

This birdhouse graces my favorite dogwood tree.

Our property has many dogwoods, but this one
tree has my heart.

I call it "The Snow Queen".

It drapes it's branches over our porch.

Our climbing hydrangea nearly hides this
one. A little hard to take a pictures of,
because it is under the eaves at the front of the house.

I hope you enjoyed a look at our
birdie real estate!

God bless,


  1. These are all so wonderful, my birdhouses are very jealous.


  2. sweet post, I love all of them. If I were a bird I'd have a hard time choosing!

  3. Evi those are precious and just give your garden such a cozy warm look! What a fabulous collection and I am sure the birds are "thrilled" with your grouping as well!
    Thanks for the tour...

  4. They are all so beautiful Evi and I bet your birdies that come to nest are the envy of the neighborhood...
    I have a fondness for the church one especially.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. oh my goodness! How lovely. :0)
    It's hard to pick a favorite as I would love to have any one of them. (((hugs)))

  6. Great collection of birdhouses. I just love 'em.....makes me want more!

  7. Evi,
    I have always loved your collection of bird houses but when I see them all together like this...it is quite impressive! They all just add to the charm of yours and Eb's gracious home!

  8. Evi, I'm a big fan of birdhouses too. Don't have many, but I'm always on the lookout.

  9. How did I miss this post?....so late to the birdie party. I could move into any of those. Might have a hard time fitting in:))

    Birdhouses add so much charm to a garden and just seems to say WELCOME ALL!
    I feel honored that one of mine( well now yours) graces your collection!

  10. Evi I love them. I love bird houses just as much as plants..........................I love to decorate my yard just like inside my home. Thanks for sharing all your lovely bird houses. Have a great evening. HUGS MARY

  11. These are SO adorable - my favorites are the ones you said you bought at a craft show.

    how long did it take your husband to make the one he did for your Christmas present?
