Isn't this sweet? I was given this birdhouse as a Volunteer Appreciation Gift at the local library where I volunteer. It was hand painted by Heather Owings, the staff volunteer coordinator. It also has been coated with a sealer so that it can be used outdoors without weather damage. I think she did a lovely job. Every one of the volunteers was given their selection from different styles and colors. Just the perfect gift in the month of April. I love it!
