birdhouse gourds finished. and redbox first time.

i finished painting my birdhouse gourds!
they turned out better then i expected.
brad drilled holes in the bottom for drainage.
i had him make the entrance holes small...so bluebirds could feel safe!
i just need to shellac them and hang them.
and wait for the new tenants.
here's what they look like from the back.
below: this isn't a pie crust...although it does look like one.
it's my latest penny rug. stay tuned.

today, for the first time...i took advantage of renting dvd's from redbox. on wednesday's throughout march and the first week in april, you can rent dvd's free, with the promotional code. which you can just type into google: redbox promotional code and the date. our local meijers and walmart has the vending machine. i was surprised to see all the current titles. i chose the family movie, "bolt." i may just be designating monday or wednesday nights..."movie nights." we'll soon be under the afghans with our popcorn...enjoying the free movie! hat tip to lisa w., for telling me about this.

I love your gourds! I think I tried a stunt like that as a teen & it ended up rotting...
