Folks, this is a beauty! I know in the past we have not ran this many auctions at one time, but some of these things will make awesome Christmas presents and this gives us time to get them in and out before Christmas!

I'll let this bigger then normal photo speak for this item. ANYONE will be lucky to have it in thier family to pass on as a favorite thing,, not only for Christmas, but to look at all the time to see the beauty.

Yes.  And it has real fake little feathers. :D

Actually the feathers look so good, they may be real ???  But I would have rathered a real little bird than de-feathering the poor thing to put them on a fake birdie. :-\

It appears that it takes one excellent turner to recognize the value of another turners excellent work.

I guess my first first post could have been taken in a negative way. As my college English professor told me the third time I flunked the course, " boy, you sure have an unusual way of putting words together". ::)

OK Burlkraft You have it for now, 4 tries and no joy.  Just wait till Katie sees that bird house in the morning.  Bet you don't keep that lead for long. :D

I dunno Bulkraft - you've already got some nice birddhouse ornaments and I don't have any... yet....

Metalspinner's handiwork sure would like nice wrapped up for Dr. Laureen this Christmas...

Man, fifty-one bucks already and still six days to auction close... I got a bad feeling about this one...

YEE-OUCH!!!

I just upped the bid for the SECOND TIME by twenty bucks and 'ol Bulrkraft still outbid me...  Had to run it up by ANOTHER TWENTY on top of the first two twenty's...

Man, this is really gonna hurt the old wallet.... either me or Burlkraft's - not sure exactly whose yet... (and there may be some other unknown bidders lurking out there that are financial masochists)

I'd better start working on a "Plan B" for the doc, just in case...
