Today, instead of painting a house, I remodeled a birdhouse. The walls are river birch bark, the front step is an oyster shell-so very Eastern Shore-and the white wispy smoke coming from the chimney was supplied by
Martha, who appreciated the extra cookies after grooming.
I was given a Vitamix by my brother-in-law for Christmas. Truly a great gift. I know there are a million things you can do with this machine but for now, it's most useful as a smoothie and margarita maker.
Here's a wood and copper birdhouse I picked up at West Virginia's Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Fair in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. WVA Mountain Heritage A&C Fair. I love craft fairs: junk food, music, and innovative happy people.
