OUTSIDE: obsession
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 5/05/2008

Now I know most people don’t share my somewhat long and tawdry obsession with the beloved bird box, but there’s something about it - a wee home on a wall - a nest. It’s so cosy and inviting and you’re doing something positive for your garden, as opposed to spraying pesticides everywhere or irritating the neighbors with noisy lawnmowers. But why the sad story? Well I have a trail of sad bird boxes littering my home, neglected, just waiting for some wee inhabitants to make them feel loved. One, rustic-looking, sits unused on my lawn, forlorn, just waiting for lazy old me to go hang it somewhere. The other, shabby-chicesque (we all go through that phase at one time or another) sits in the side yard gathering dust. So maybe this gem from my latest favorite site Generate could be the go. Clean lines, sweet motif. Nice. I think I really have to get the other ones up tho before I can splurge again. What say you?
