The Dovecote

I have to be absolutely honest....until recently I didn't know what a dovecote actually was.  In fact, I'd never even heard the word dovecote until early this year.  My antique friend had mentioned wanting one and I just played along like I knew what she was talking about! Now since it had the word dove in it I kinda figured it had something to do with birds!  When I googled it I found that a dovecote is a structure that is meant to house pigeons or doves, so there you have it...you too now know what it is!
At the "big sale" over in Pine Mountain she was able to finally pick her dovecote up.  She came home and promptly got her husband along with our shared handyman, Bob and they got it hung!  It is solid wood and is very heavy so, kudos to them as it was a bit of work to get it up there.




I love the sides of it, the scalloped roof adds to the charm for sure!



When we got to the sale I kept telling her she should go with one of the smaller ones, so glad she didn't listen to me since this size is perfect!

I am so pleased that my friend finally got something that she had wanted and it is a perfect fit for her style of decorating!
