A few months ago my aunt gave us some scrap pieces of “stained glass” that she found in a box of junk she picked up at a garage sale. She thought I’d like it.
Yes, indeed I do and it didn’t take long for Rick to picture it as part of a birdhouse.
He used the larger piece as the “front” of the birdhouse and the smaller piece for the back. He carved the wood out to fit the shape of the scrap pieces and glued them in place.
He put the hole to the birdhouse on the side and painted some church windows beside the opening.
We put the birdhouse up today, with the windows facing the east and west so that the sunlight will glisten off the glass for my enjoyment.
Within minutes of putting it up the male sparrow from the birdhouse below it was sitting on the perch and peering in the door to check it out.
One man’s junk is another man’s treasure—and a future home for some birdies.
