Literary Lodgings

I was doing some holiday shopping last weekend when I spotted these delightful book birdhouses, made artist David Vissat. I love the honey wand on the Pooh house!

This one makes me especially happy, as I recently reread To Kill A Mockingbird. It was just as magical reading it as an adult... what a beautiful book.

When I got home I realized I had seen some of David's work awhile back over on Shelftalker (see write-up here). I have not yet ventured into creating my own birdhouse like Alison did, but I will have to put it on my ever growing art projects "to do" list...

These are so great.

Especially the honey wand -- does the middle one have a Sherlock Holmes roof?

I love the book, but if I was a bird that could read I don't think I'd ever live in the last one. I think that one might be haunted.

You've got to make one for your next book!

I think the pipe house book is called The Gentle Art of Smoking! Ha!

Yes birdies beware of the last house, more than foreboding for literary fowl : )
