Fun Monday - Mother, May I?

This Fun Monday is brought to you by......Hootin'Anni. Details are at her website but here is my version of "Anni, May I?"

30 steps from my favorite place to blog is this.


It is a one of a kind, custom made bird hotel. We have owned this hotel for upwards of 2 years and it has lived on top of the dog crate in my living room. Yes, I have an eclectic decorating style.

I took 30 steps in an easterly direction and ran smack dab into the railroad tie/fence post in the middle of my yard. I thought that would be boring, so I stuck the birdhouse on top. Actually, my husband stuck the birdhouse on top.

Thank you, dear.



I turned around, took 15 baby steps, turned south, and this
is what I saw. I had intended to take pictures of the oak tree but took this of the protector of the oak tree instead. This is what Holly looks like without the Christmas collar.


There you have it. Have fun, everyone, and I'll see you in your comments section!

The bird hotel is a nice touch (and it's only cheating if Anni catches you!).
I think Holly is lovely (even naked)

I love that bird hotel. It is great, and probably is bettered used out of doors. Holly is cute. I love all your dog photos on the side bar.

Great birdhouse. With that protection, I bet not many bother the oak tree.

Sirdar said...

Nice bird hotel. Now if you can figure out how to get them to pay rent, you'd be a millionaire!! :-)
