Inspired by a PBS TV show called WordWorld , my daughter (ok, I helped) built the "bird house " shown as an entry in the 10th annual Birdhouse Display and Benefit Auction at The Arboretum in Lexington, KY. It attracted a lot of attention and potential buyers, but we really didn't want to sell it. So, this Instructable tells you how to build your own....

This birdhouse is called "The Secrets of Home" by artist Lydia Burris. "I am inspired by the seemingly random and wild colors and shapes in nature, and choose to infuse my work with intense colors and organic shapes, along with a bit of fantasy and emotion, as seen by the occasional faces peeking out from the work."
