My garden is coming along nicely since we replaced the fence but we had a lot of work to do including moving some of my treasured birdhouses.

This little mini birdhouse came home with me from the Country Living Fair. 

Someone was selling these cute birdhouses on spindles, Being a crafter myself I bought the birdhouse and attached it to my own spindle.
