Great new ceramic birdhouse in the shape of a little outhouse. A real special year round birdhouse that can tolerate cold weather. Compliments of Jon Carloftis who just gave a wonderful lecture for Historic Flat Rock, Inc. Check him out at www.joncarloftis.com What a wonderful, talented landscape gardener. His new book on Kentucky gardens is a must.

My contribution to the charity Hobo Ball at Connemara, the Carl Sandburg home. The smaller version called Seminole Skies from the book, Patchwork Potpourri.

The beginning where mountains and sky come together with accent strips connecting the two segments. It is a piece and re-piece method.
