A Spring Birdhouse out of gingerbread!

Anytime is a good time for gingerbread!!  That’s my philosophy.  I know it’s summertime weather in many parts of the world, but in my part of Canada, it’s still just spring, and a lovely spring I’m happy to admit!  No weather complaints from me.  I had fun making this brightly colored little birdhouse to celebrate the (finally!) coming of spring.  (see this gingerbread house for more details about the making of the house)
Gingerbread Birdhouse by dennasideas.com - Page 004I don’t mind giving out a lot of my recipes, but I’m afraid our gingerbread recipe is a family secret!  You know, just in case someday I start a fabulous gingerbread company…. 😉Gingerbread Birdhouse by dennasideas.com - Page 002

The ribbons on the roof aren’t my original idea, I saw some lovely houses here with that idea and just loved it!Gingerbread Birdhouse by dennasideas.com - Page 002

“Ain’t it just precious sickening?”   The sun on the back of the house turned out nicer I think….

Color Inspiration at Grandma’s house

Standard

Spending Easter at Grandma and Grandpa’s house was good family time.  We love their house and the cozy things we find there.  Here are some shots and spring color inspiration:

Always a cheerful welcome at the red front door…

Love the old lath and plaster walls on this almost-100-year-old house, but there are few bits left showing now…

On my windowsill at Grandma’s house….I remember those insulator things from when I was little…

A tradition in my family=puzzles!

Grandma’s always knitting something….too bad I never learned how!  Little kids love playing with the balls of yarn.

Lovely, lovely old doorknob!  Looks like the entrance to a wonderful place…
