Poynette Library – DECORATE A BIRDHOUSE FUNdraising Event!

The Friends of the Poynette Library enlisted local artists to help with this fabulous fundraising event.

Here were our instructions:

- Sign out a birdhouse (or build one yourself)

- Donate your time, materials and creativity on behalf of the Friends.

- Decorate the birdhouse with tiles, paints, stencils, pebbles, straw, etc.

- Return it to the library on or before May 14, 2009

I received a friendly ‘reminder’ on Monday night that my birdhouse was due back at the library no later than Thursday! I had completely forgotten about it so I was very happy for the call. I had shown up the library late and there were only a few small birdhouses left to decorate and I knew I wouldn’t have time to come up with my own (at least this year…I already have a few ideas if they do it again next year…) so I took a small one home.

Wednesday was ‘Grandma Day’ for the girls so I finally had some time to paint my birdhouse. I painted it with a fabulous mixture of dark blue and celery colored paint. I then used modge podge to attach this fabulous bird print from a piece of fabric onto the top of the houses’ roof…of course I added some glitter to my modge podge…it wouldn’t be my birdhouse without that!

My mother-in-law, Diane, was a bit more ambitious and creative than I! She painted this fabulous apple gourd and made it into a birdhouse! I think it looks fantastic. If I were you would I would keep your eyes peeled this fall for some more of these at our Orchard store!002

Before I picked the girls up, I delivered our birdhouses to the library. Here are some pictures of the other’s that people decorated!007 001 003 004 006

These birdhouses will be displayed and ON SALE on May 15th and 16th at the Friends of the Library Annual Plant and Book Sale.

This sale will be in the Presbyterian Church Basement at 224 N. Main St, Poynette, WI. Friday from 8-5 and Saturday from 8-2.

All the proceeds go to benefit the Poynette Area Public Library.

Thank you for supporting your Friends of the Library in this unique endeavor!
