A Birdhouse and Repurposing – A Three Year Olds’ Point of view

This precocious little cutie is my mini-me.  

 She keeps me entertained daily with her boundless energy and sharp wit. 
I usually try to get my creative work done while she is at pre-school, 
but that only gives me about 12 hours a week.   

Sometimes when I am in the middle of a project 
I find things for her to paint, so we can work together.  

This birdhouse was a father/son project that needed a feminine touch.    

The perfect project to occupy my little angel while I worked. 
When offered a choice of pink, green or yellow 
she decisively chose all three of course!  

  I think any mamma bird would be proud to 
raise her babies in this cheerful house.

Isn’t it amazing how her “polka dots” look like green leaves?!  

Once she finished her custom bird house 
(which did not take as long as I’d hoped) 
she ventured off to find some mischief.   

Along the way she decided her feet were cold.  

 My suggestion was to go up stairs and get some slippers.  


 Who needs slippers when you have these lovely things??!!   

Only a three year old would think to repurpose a pair of latex gloves into shoes!  

Until next time….
