A HOUSE

A house is a structure that is a shelter from the weather.
A house is made from many different materials--wood, steel, glass.
Everyone should have a house, even birds.

A HOME

A home is a feeling that provides security and safety from the world.
A home is made from many different virtues--love, acceptance, forgiveness.
Everyone should have a home, even the unwanted.

Welcome Home.

are those morning glories around the bird house? I watched a movie last night called Homeless to Harvard. Boy you are so right everyone deserves, especially innocent little children, to have a home to feel secure in.

Hi Fannie, sorry I haven't visited for a few days, been doing longer hours at work, BUT, look what I've missed out on! This atc is gorgeous! I love using the neocolours. I like the way you can sometimes add a highlight and not use water. All you need now is a wee bluebird!
hugs, carole.

What a great piece to showcase your trademark wood grain stitching. Love the morning glories twining around the roof.

Lucky little birdies!

This is adorable. You've been a busy girl. I just love birdhouses - and this one in your signature style - is awesome!

Nice to see you, Stephanie!

Dove, yes, those are morning glories. Thanks for guessing. ;-D And, yes, everyone should have a home.

Diana, nice to see you. Hope you're doing well. Take care.

Hi, Carole--at your suggestion, I posted a blue bird, which happens to be a class project too. ;-D

Thanks for stopping by Cindy, Jacq, and Melissa.

Welcome, Sandra. Glad you stopped by, which gave me a chance to take a peek at your blog--inspiring work there. Happy to make a new friend.

FY, always love your words.

Hey, Cathie, thanks for your comments.
