What began as a keep-the-kids-from-self-destruction-while-I-cook-dinner activity turned out to be pretty cool.
The kids chose materials thoughtfully and according to what they felt the birds would like.
Both are creations almost ready to occupy our backyard as soon as I brave up and cut feeder holes into the plastic.
Or maybe I can jam some Christmas lights in there and call it shabby chic.
We're down with the shabby,
still working on the chic.
