  2. I recently read a book set in the early 1900’s where the main character was an avid birdwatcher and had created a bird sanctuary in her backyard. It totally made me want to get some bird houses for my yard this spring. What a fun roundup of ideas!

  3. Lindsey says:

    These are all such great ideas! I have a ton of bird houses from Yard Envy, and these decorations would suit them so well. I love the idea of covering with moss, and I’ve never considered a butterfly feeder before. Great tips!

    Where can I buy the embellishments or decorations for my birdhouse. I see so many with decor and trinkets, but can’t find a site to purchase items.

      You can find them online at numerous places based on where you live. However, my personal best are thrift stores and Michaels. Hope this helps!
