I call this stylish because you won't find one more simply designed, or richly finished - with adjustable shelves and a slender sillouette. I believe it to be urban because it is just right for the city aesthetic and for the "not very much room for anything in this room" rooms of our lovely Chicago. The only question is why isn't someone making THIS and selling it for the needy and weary furniture shopper. The many mysteries of life.

I've long admired the architecture of the vintage birdhouses. This is a perfect example of how this quiet yet consistent craft turns out functional birdhouses that pass as sculpture. Bravo to this unnamed artist for making us all smile. And, for giving our little creatures a fancy new address. Step right up, and add this all white birdhouse to your yards' largest tree. (The roof tops on this particular birdhouse are aluminum siding, conveniently eliminating the need for yearly painting - and, you'd never know unless I tipped you off. Here's to Spring in Chicago!!
