Airstream Birdhouse

I saw this listing on ebay tonight http://cgi.ebay.com/Aluminum-Airstre...QQcmdZViewItem
I bought one of these for my wife last Christmas and it is very nice. I have not seen one listed in a while.

For sure a bird could fit inside. It's a foot long (ball to bumper) and 6 inches wide. The door hole is 1 1/2 inches wide. Since we have ours inside on a shelf in the living room, I hope this does not happen.

That tree stand is massive. My wife wanted a tree to fill the room, it's 14 feet tall. The part of the stand that holds water is about 9 inches across. The stand weights about 20 pounds.

Wowwww!..14 ft. tall!..that's amazing..you must have those really high ceilings in your house!..getting off-topic: gone are the days where my husband and 2 sons and I used to go cut a tree down, haul it home, then put it up..we even tried buying pre-frosted ones which were pricey and decided to do it ourselves one year..that ended up costing us about $50 just buying enough of the can stuff to spray!!.. 3 years ago, we got really creative.. we brought in our 3 ft. rosemary herb plant, shaped it into a tree, put on fishing lures (my husband is an avid fisherman) we got rave reviews from family and friends!
Then 2 years ago, we decided to go in a different direction...we bought a faux tree, comes complete with lights and a box to store it for the rest of the year!..it works for us..no more dropped needles or sap!

My wife and I and the 3 dogs do just that. We get a permit from the forest service ($10) and drive up to northern Az and cut one down. I did streach the 10 ft limit that year. Here is a picture of my wife (the one with out a head) explaining to the girls about what to look for in a tree.

That's a great pic!..3 dogs, huh? we've got Cody..he goes fishing and hunting w/my husband. Whereabouts in No. Arizona do you go to get your trees?..we stayed in Flagstaff a few years ago on the way to the Grand Canyon..boy was it COLD!..I think it was 29, my hands were freezing inside my knit gloves!..that was in January.. I can see why the other campers had skirts around the bottom of their trailers!

Cody,
We were on the Mugion Rim about 60 miles East of Payson AZ, near Forest Lakes.

Sounds like a neat place to go..never been there..have been to Scottsdale when it was 117degrees..we also took a ride to go see Frank Lloyd Wright's Taltesin (sp)

What was I thinking?..here's a pic of my little airstream model my son gave my husband for Father's day 2 years ago..it sits right on our shelf too in the living room it's about a foot long too from bumper to hitch. I went online and saw that you can but it for a lot more than what you got it for!!!
