Hello everyone, I finished my Bird neighborhood.
I had such fun making this, a thatched house, a
lovely old barn and a hut all the way from New Zealand. 

The back of the housed the backdoor is always closed.

In the barn Mrs Nancy Blue a Barn Swallow
She is a beautiful, with her tawny body and glistening
cobalt blue head, she always has a crowd at her nest
lots of kids and helpers, you always hear laughter there :O). 

Her husband is a metal worker, he has to work hard
to feed all the gang, he does lovely work as you can see.

They have a metal roof, when it rains it warm and cozy,
 the rain sound amazing in there.
They have a bat house outside..
The rest of the houses in next post..

Oh, these are fabulous Dianne. Love the colors and all the little details, like the roof and the metal work... you are so creative... and patient to make all these. Sorry for not visiting... we were out of the country for most of August and now it's back to school time. My little one started too and it's been way too busy and hectic...

These are just so lovely Dianne and I adore your imaginative story-telling around them too! What I don't understand is how I missed this post. I was really looking forward to seeing how you used these game pieces and then somehow the post passed me by! I must have been fluttering off somewhere in search of shiny things for my nest!
