New House On The Homestead
Last week I found a mailbox still attached to the post in the dumpster when we took our trash. Of course it had to come home with me. I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. Painted it with paints given to me when a lady cleaned out her garage. Cut a hole in the door of the mailbox and bent the metal up to make a roof over the doorway so the birds wouldn't get wet. I had a wooden swing bird feeder that I hung close by so they wouldn't have far to go for food. Hopefully the birds will spread the word and next spring Bird Haven Cottage will be rented!
