    Hi CW Gang:

    I have been going through some old photos here and I thought I would post you a pic of the 6 Room Bird House MY DAD MADE/BUILT/ and even made the little shingles for it.....LOL. My Dad liked to work with Work as I had posted for you before that hand carved Picture frame he did out of 72 pieces.

    Anyhow, this is a Bird house my Dad made. He loved to do things like this, and I thought I would share............PLUS.........I will share with you a Pic of me from 1986 Camping.....LOL. Now I am just OLD, but still have long hair !!!

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!

    ~ Rose ~

      Rose,
      This is just wonderful!!So well made and very detailed! What a grand piece to pass down to the next generation of your family. By the way, great '80s pic of you!!

      I love this!!!! What a beautiful bird house.
      You're "old"now?

      I was already 33 in 1986!
    3. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      And I was 23 in '86. So, you can't officially be considered old yet:)
    4. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago

    14. martika martika, 5 years ago
      Your birdhouse has fine details, very nicely made. Don't consider yourself old! My husband is your age and he is fit as a fiddle, he would put many younger men in shame.

    18. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      How many "rooms" in this birdhouse ? Is each door & window for a diff. family ? Exactly how large is this "Tourist Camp"? LOL !! Must be for starlings.
    19. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
