Gourd Bird Houses
Hi!! My name is Miss Jinny a.k.a. Mama Bird. My husband & I have a beautiful home in the North Georgia Mountains nestled up in the trees. The name of our house is the “Bird's Nest.”
After having grandchildren, I decided to share the simple joys of nature & love. I have been growing Mammoth sunflowers for the past 19 years, and while sitting on my porch admiring our garden, I became inspired to paint. Their love & beauty motivated me to share with others. I hope that you will enjoy my whimsical flowers.
My husband grew gourds a few years ago, just out of a "whim". This also inspired me to further my creativity by making bird houses. After lots of research, I decided this would be so much fun!! We harvested gourds, bleached them, hung them for a year, bleached again, and THEN began the process. We measured where the holes should be drilled for many kinds of birds, scraped out the seeds & membranes, primed & NOW ready to paint. WHEW!! Each gourd takes on its own character & will be a one of kind.
This is such an exciting adventure for me, & something I truly love & enjoy. These can be hung indoors & outdoors. I hope you will enjoy the pleasure of what might could come to your own "Bird's Nest!"
