Birdhouse for Someone Special

I've been making this little birdhouse for my daughter in law. She is probably the best daughter in law anyone could have. She loves my son immensely. And she gave us 2 gorgeous grandsons! What else could you want? Plus she is very generous to me. When down there a couple of weeks ago she gave me a new bottle of Burberry perfume and it is wonderful. So I decided to do something special for her. She's a "PINK" also - just like me. I have a group on ebay that we call each other "PINKS" because we like, no LOVE, pink. We talk about each other's grandchildren in terms of Pinks and Blues - girls and boys.

We also love roses and just about all of us paint or try to paint roses. I'm the saddest painter of the bunch but I'm trying to learn. Hardest thing I've ever done. But most of us have "pink" houses and some are bolder than others with the colors. But for my daughter in law I decided to be bold and subtle with the colors for this little house. I made the clay roses also. My "icing" didn't turn out as well as it can but oh well, she'll love it because I'm putting a plumeria scented sachet in it to smell up her home.
