not too handy but I try


Today I fixed the swinging door to my chicken coop.. it was ready to fall off and looks like something from the Beverley Hillbillies.
I painted a small mural of a chicken and nailed it to the door. It is secure!

Also, here is a faded mural that I painted a few years ago on my garden shed. Its kind of colorful 'round here.







Here is an aviary that I slapped together (uh -- built) last week. I wanted a "house" for all my birds... 2 ringneck doves, 4 finches, an 2 canaries. There is now room for more! I am not too handy and don't own power tools, so I nailed the thing together and mounted it on my old drafting table :)

I'll say! I am impressed Nina. I think it looks great! I am sure your birds will be very happy there. You have the touch, eh?

I love the surroundings of your house. It looks so interesting and very intriguing. Lve the mural too. I just think your personality is forwarded on your property/house. It is truly great.

Have yourself a great weekend dear.

Love Eilen Villemo :-)
