This is the birdhouse that Holly chose for me from an artisan at Art Among The Ruins. I love it...it's hard to see in the vid, but it has such whimsey, twigs and branches attached to it, and the colourful stains on the wood allow the woodgrain to be seen nicely too. I loved the different styles of them that she made. Holly bought a blue one for herself.
We just finished a lovely summer weekend full of family and fun. My daughter Holly and I, left Dave and Jeff to install a new front door at their house on Saturday morning while she and I set off to look for a wedding dress!
She is getting married next July, and being an organized sort of person, now was as good a time as any to begin the search. She found one! And it's so lovely, she's delighted and so am I...we didn't expect it would be so easy!
After the door was in and secured, we enjoyed a marvelous smoked bbq before setting out for an evening of fun and frolic at Ottawa Blues Fest, and that was a treat. The Dixie Chicks were headlining that night; Dave and Jeff love their music. I liked the tunes and the electric fiddle especially:)

I slept in on Sunday, and woke up to find Holly and Jeff cleaning and detailing Dave's truck! oh my goodness... can you get any more generous than that?
Sunday afternoon we met up with Dave's sisters and brothers families for a summer get-together, which was so wonderful to catch up with some of the gang.
