Another Birdhouse for Mom...

I'm heading up to my Mom's tomorrow and she loves my altered pieces, she usually swipes a few when she's visiting.  So I started making her altered Bird Houses I pick up at Michaels for a few bucks, I think I paid $2 for this one.  Painted it khaki and crackled it with delta crackle & antique white (I love tim, but just regular crackle paint works so much better for me).  I used Crate Paper Recollections scraps I had laying around some vintage buttons, thread and lots of flowers.  The butterfly charms are new from Bo Bunny.  Here are a few more shots of it. 

 Thanks for checking it out & I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!  I'll be on the road!
