Seymour Pumpkin Festival

Hi Everyone

We had a great time at the Seymour Pumpkin Festival Sunday. The rain held off all day long, just a little muggy at the end.

Fred won third place in the wood category. He has been very busy  making Halloween items for shows.

Here are a couple of the lighted pumpkins. Don't forget to check our show schedule. Not too many more shows left.  HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

Mama Bird

Posting another picture that one of our customers took. This birdhouse is on a wooden stake. If you look closely you can see the Mama Bird taking care of her babies. We have also posted some excerpts from Barbara's email to us. Thank you so much Barbara! Looking forward to seeing you again next year at Celebrate West Hartford Days.

"I purchased this birdhouse at June’s Celebrate!"
"Look closely…. there is a darling Mama Bird protecting her nest. J  I enjoyed watching her build the nest and then hear the babies tweeting away.  The day after I took this photo, the birds were gone."
"Keep on making those adorable birdhouses"

Chicken Coop

We would like to post another picture from one of our customers, they purchased our chicken coop. This birdhouse is a favorite. Many have bought the chicken coop for wedding gifts, house warming gifts, and birthday gifts.

We have ours on a pole in the back yard. It is a three compartment birdhouse and the birds have enjoyed it now for four years.

We would like to add a picture from Mary, and her display of the birdhouse she purchased. Thank you Mary - enjoy it for many years!!!..

Made In Connecticut

We participated in the Made In Connecticut show back on May 14th & 15th. There were a lot of vendors and we met some new friends.

The show also brought us new customers. We particularly enjoyed talking with Santiago & Jessica. They purchased three birdhouses from us and recently sent pictures.

We think you did a great job of displaying the birdhouses. Thank you so much for sharing your pictures. We hope to see you next year!!

Celebrate West Hartford

Hello Everyone

We participated in the Celebrate West Hartford Craft Show this weekend. The weather was perfect Saturday, a little to be desired Sunday, but all in all a very good show.

We had many repeat customers that we truly enjoyed seeing again. Some were even kind enough to take pictures of the birdhouses they purchased.

I want to thank Amy for her great pictures of our saltbox birdhouse Fred made. They decided to have it attached to a large wood pole that Fred also created.

It really looks great in your garden Amy and Doug. Enjoy it and looking forward to seeing you again next year!

Loyal Customers

We wanted to share some more pictures from one of our customers who purchased two of our large birdhouses at a craft show.

The poles were painted by them making their display look so unique. We just love it.

Thank you so much!!!!

Most all songbirds will lay one egg per day until their hatch of eggs is complete.

House Wrens

House Wrens are just one of the many songbirds you will see in your backyard soon. The male House Wren is getting very busy choosing good nesting sites for the female House Wren. Males will sing while building partial nests which ensures territorial claim.

The male House Wren will build these partial nests in several birdhouses. Once the female House Wren selects a birdhouse she mates with the male that built it for her.

You will know by the beautiful song they will be singing together.

In a few months spring will be here. The end of February should be a good time to hang your birdhouses for the songbirds that will be frequenting your yard this spring.

One specific songbird you will hear this spring will the Wren. You will hear the males signing as they busily build partial nests in multiple birdhouses. They do this to offer a suitable site for the female to raise their young in.

When the female Wren has found the birdhouse of her choice she will mate with the male and together they will raise their family.

is a great place to start looking for birdhouses. We have many to choose from. If you decide to order, please use code Wren when checking out and receive 30% off any one birdhouse from our website (does not include shipping and handling) offer good through April 12, 2016.

Spring will be here before you know it!
