Blingy Birdhouse

I have to say I wasn't sure if I would participate in Karla and Beth's Bling Your Birdhouse event or not. I wasn't very confident in my ability to come up with anything worthwhile. But I decided to throw caution to the wind and this is what I have come up with. Welcome to Chateau Fleur home to Amelie and Colette - two of the most fun loving chickies around.



These two chicks quite love flowers and sparkle. They have climbing roses growing up the side of their humble home so they can be greeted with natural beauty each time they return home from their worldly adventures.




These two love jewelry and thought this would be the perfect touch for the peak of their roof.




They love the sparkle as I said and decided to decorate the facade with German glass glitter so that they would stand out from the crowd.




Amelie and Colette thank you for visiting them today.

Thanks to Karla and Beth for another fun one!
