"Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart's tears can dry at their own pace." ~ Vernon Baker

Hello dear bloggy friends and welcome to my HOME where you are invited to share anything pertaining to your home.

With Spring just a few days away, I thought I would share a few of my bird houses with you. I have bird houses throughout my home because I find they lend a sense of charm to one's environment. I also love our little feathered friends. Most of my bird houses are painted white although I do have a few that are not. Today I will share some of those that are not white.  

These birdhouses greet you as you come in the back door. They are both covered with a toile fabric. I love them!

The little white birdie was once an ugly brown and mustard yellow. I gave him a coat of white and he looks much happier.

This bird house is Noah's ark complete with buttons and a birdhouse for the dove.

My last bird house is a little cottage with rockers on the front stoop. This one is special to me because it was painted for me by an artist friend for my birthday one year. Curtains and flower boxes adorn the windows while flower pots and bird houses grace the shelves out front above the rockers. Isn't it charming?

"People usually are the happiest at home." ~ William Shakespeare

Now I would like to share the top viewed posts from last week. Congrats everyone!

Bernideen received the most views with her beautiful Spring tea table upon which she shared her latest thrift finds. Simply charming!

Wanda Lee  set an array of lovely tea time treasures for friends to enjoy. Each vignette is a work of art.

Judy shared a charming post recalling memories of tea time with her beloved grandmother.  Heart warming!

I thought it interesting that all three posts were centered around tea. Must be that Spring is on its way.

Thank you for your visits and lovely comments every week. If you would like to share something, simply write a post and link up below. I will be happy to come and visit you. And to all of my Irish lovin friends, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
