I admit it, I'm a little behind the curve sometimes. I'm just starting to wonder what I'm going to do with those leaves piling up in my yard. I have a couple boxes of spring and summer clothes in a corner of my bedroom awaiting their annual trip up to the attic.
And two weeks after Election Day I'm beginning to think about what to do with the Obama sign that's been in my window for six months. (I may leave it up through January 20, since I live in Washington.) For those of you who hate to throw out a perfectly good political sign, here's your solution: Make it into a bird house. (I know! Why didn't we think of that?!)
Directions are from a Quebecois group, Les Fourmis (hence the images you probably don't recognize).
The birds will be happier for it!
