THERE WAS SO MUCH TO SHOW YOU in last week’s post about artist Stephanie Reit‘s garden that I saved her wonderful birdhouse collection for another time. Now’s the time.

The birdhouses that dot her East Hampton backyard are both attractive as garden ornaments and well-used by the local birds.

But there’s yet another layer to Stephanie’s birdhouse fascination. Each year, around this time, she makes a whimsical sculptural assemblage in the form of a birdhouse to donate to the annual Artist and Celebrity Bird House Auction, a fundraiser for the South Fork Breast Health Coalition.
