Great B-day Present...

Let me begin by sayin', I have not posted in a while.  Excuse, I stink?!  Sorry.  I've been busy, but I do have a couple "projects" to post.

Ok, so tomorrow is my Great Uncle Ray's 80th bday party at my Mom's house.  Like, what in the world do you get an 80 year old man?!  Solution?  Why not a pirate ship birdhouse from the cherubs?  Great idea.  So, I went to Michael's craft store, bought a pirate ship birdhouse and painted it with acrylic paint.  As you will see, the flags are painted in each child's favorite color with their first initial on it.  That way, when Uncle Ray sits on his porch, he can look at this birdhouse and think of how much we love him.  :)

I went ahead and distressed it before the weather could get to it.  :)  I think he will like it.

  6. That's so nice of you to get him the bird house AND to paint it on top! :) I get so emotional when it comes to older people, they seem like kids to me, and need extra love and care. :)
