Marmaduke’s Christmas Bird House

Marmaduke the Teddy Bear Carpenter

He’s very skilled for a little teddy bear, and Marmaduke also loves nature, so he’s been making a rustic bird house to keep the little robin redbreasts safe over the cold winter.  And, like a good little bear, he’s finished the work well in time for Christmas.

The snag was, when he’d finished the thing, he wanted to keep it for himself, and moved in with all his possessions, even his marmalade.

Eventually he realised that the little birds needed it more than he does, so now it’s gone.  Marmaduke loves robyns especially.

All cool guys should be able to do a little woodwork, it’s an urban survival skill.

  1. Marmaduke is such a great carpenter! Um … Jack? I need some bookshelves built along the stairway, and in the upstairs hallway. If I promised him some honey and tuna, do you think he would like to come spend a week with me and build me some shelves?

    1. If you tempted him with a jar of marmalade I’m certain he’d build your bookshelves for you. He loves doing things for others. ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. and a cute one too, you forgot to add that…..a coffee table….will he let you use it or will he steal it for his own little bear feet whilst watching the tele?

  4. Jack, I think you and Marmaduke should build a similar structure to keep in the garret. Perhaps it could be Marmaduke’s own little mini-garret?
