Wordless/Wordful Wednesday – Princess Nagger’s Pretty Purple Bird House

After the hair-raising break-in on Monday, and even though A.C. Moore didn’t have Princess Nagger’s name appliqué in stock, the trip wasn’t a complete bust. They had a sale going on for their unfinished wood projects, so Princess Nagger decided she really needed to get a bird house to paint and put out for the birds so they’ll have a winter home.

She donned one of Dada’s old shirts and got to work:

Purple is her favorite color, so of course she decided purple was the color of the day:

She also wanted to add pink accents, and originally was going to paint the roof pink, but opted to do half pink and half purple, then add pink polka dots and designs to the purple side. Then she was having fun ‘creating’ a ‘brand new’ color by mixing the pink and purple paint together. She kept asking every five minutes if it was dry yet, and didn’t like having to wait until the next day to hang the house up for the birds. She did enjoy playing with it that night, though, as she let her little and bears inhabit the house and marveled at the fact that it’s technically a 2-story house.

The next day she wanted to put the house up first thing, so I armed myself with the drill to attach it to the grape arbor…you’ll note that she added bird seed on the top and bottom of the house, because she wanted to make it ‘convenient’ for the birds so they didn’t have to over to the bird feeder to eat. She also added a cracker just in case they were ‘extra’ hungry:
Travis was showing great interest in the house – I think he thought it was a treat house just for him:

He tried to stick his nose in the side windows to steal the cracker…

The house is now successfully hanging on the grape arbor, awaiting the first bird to decide to make it its home. Princess Nagger was a little disappointed that there wasn’t already a bird in there by the end of the day…she was afraid they didn’t like the paint job. I reassured her that it was beautiful, and that they were probably waiting until the dogs weren’t around to inspect the new abode.
I’ll keep an eye on things, and if any of the birds decide it’s a great place to and build a nest in it, you’ll be the first to know. Well, first after Princess Nagger, of course!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.
