  My creative son, Hunter Wagner, has been making
Alamo Birdhouses, and Gruene Hall Bird Houses in his spare time, mostly with recyled materials.
They are great additions to your yard and the birds flock to them.

The Alamo has double quarters for those little birdies that want separate rooms. They  are made of cedar and mosaic stone  in the front. They measure 14 inches across, 5 inches high and 9 inches deep.  $65.

The Gruene Hall is made of cedar and has  plexiglass windows for you to peek through. The LED lights turn on at night and recharges the battery during the day through solar power!  You can even open the back of the house and clean on cleaning day!  With all the lights and extras, Gruene sells for $80. 
Order soon for Christmas delivery!

 I am excited to announce that I will by showing my art in the Haus of Antiquites in New Braunfels. The house/galley is run by Ben and Allison Guenther, a darling young couple who are so talented in so many ways!!   Here is a quote that will be running on the radio about their new shop.

"We are an unusual gallery of art and furniture for the passionately curious at heart. We strive to create an eco-friendly lifestyle by re-purposing, but with an edge. Our artifacts are hand-selected and completely re-vamped for a fresh and bold new design. No doubt will you find your next big inspiration or something of your most wild imagination. Come fall back in love with intense color, art, and all things that inspire. Be practically curious in everyway."

Kauai Roosters and Chickens Everywhere!

This Christmas we went to Hawaii for a wedding and stayed a few days in Kauai. What a beautiful place and my camera couldn't stop flashing pictures of the chickens, roosters, and families with baby chicks! They were the most beautiful feathered animals I have seen!  They have beautiful red color and occationally speckled white spots.  I couldn't decide what to name the one above....Birds of a Feather, or Follow Me. Any ideas?  It is 8 by 24 framed in a beautiful sort of rustic frame with anti relective glass. The other one is 9 by 12 framed in a nice black frame with the same AR glass.  I think I will name it "Stepp'in Through"

   The story goes that the ancient Polynesicians and Europeans brought chickens to Hawaii and the Filipinos brought the brightly colored fighting cocks and the wild chickens.  It is said that a hurricane freed all of them from their cages and they now roam and mulitply all over the island.  I have to admit I have never seen so many wandering all over the island  and crowing all night chickens!  Beautiful and fun, except for when you are trying to sleep!

  Mark your calendar for the Boerne Parade of Art and Taste of Boerne, It will be April 8 through the 10.  I will be at the Rusty Bucket  on Main Street. Hope you can come by and have some wine and tastes with me!
