"SOME THINGS IN A CAGE MAKE MY HEART SING!!!"

I love bird cages! All shapes and sizes. New and old! Throw in a "BEAUTIFUL" little nest and my heart leaps with joy!!!

Add a vintage brooch and a sweet little angel and now it's a little bit of heaven!

I like to use these little houses to display my treasures! They seem to just draw you into the cage with them.

This is a vintage bird cage, it's a Hendrix, everything was there when I bought it even the tray inside and the stand! I like how the bottom is bent, it adds to the story of it's past life!

This little water dish wouldn't stay put, but alittle vintage ribbon did the trick. Don't you just love the little cement bird planter?
These are pictures with the cage part off the base.

I LOVE THIS NEST !!! IT'S PERFECT!!!!

I collect old keys. Among many other things!

I use books to elevate things, to give height and importance!

Don't you just love these sweet little love birds!!!!
Do you see Cupid?

Basket of bird eggs anyone?

" HOW SWEET "

Pictures with the bird cage door open! See Cupid with his arrow?


I used a key to keep the door open.


This little picture belonged to my grandmother.


OOOPS!!!! This picture is for the next time, see the bowl in the background?


"ONE SWEET LITTLE NEST----ONE SWEET LITTLE EGG"

IT'S NICE TO BE BACK DEAR FRIENDS!!!

OH, Deborah!!
I LOVE THAT BIRD CAGE!!!!
I'm just getting ready to do mine, and you have given me some great ideas. Wouldn't have thought of a spool of anything, or an old photo.
Your old bird cage is so great too!
(I just have a regular decorator bird cage.)
I'm so glad you are feeling better!!!!
I've missed you.
Glad you came by to enter the giveaway drawing!!

Blessings, and keep well.
