  • Photos of Bird Ornament Tree (as requested)

    I was asked to post more detailed pics of my bird ornament tree (which my wonderful hub built for me), so here they are. It's great because it doesn't take up much table space but holds a lot of product. Its biggest drawback is transporting it. I usually carry it on my lap and ask Hub to please drive carefully! We can fit our entire display now in our VW Golf, which is just wonderful. No more taking both the truck and the car.

    The base of the tree is 12 inches in diameter and Hub used one of the big round Lazy Susans, which are surprisingly inexpensive. I think it was 10 bucks. The vertical portion is not solid wood but made from 1x4s (it's hollow). A cap was made for the top which has a hole in it where I insert the "thingy" that holds the laminated sign, which is just a hunk of wood with a bandsaw kerf. The 1/4" dowels that hold the birds are capped to keep them from falling off. The little bird cards are laminated and stick on with little Velcro squares. I give a card (non-laminated) to the customer with each bird they purchase, which they seem to much appreciate. Nice touch for gift giving.

    I think The Good Lord every day for my Hub. He doesn't make intarsia and he doesn't cook but he certainly has his uses!

      I wondered how that was constructed. Very useful hubby, Lou.

        Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

        I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

        These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
