In its former life it may have housed a sweetly trilling, yellow canary.
Perhaps a small, colorful parakeet.
Maybe it housed a talking bird with an extensive vocabulary. Great for entertainment!
Whatever it housed in its former life, for now this delightful, vintage bird house is a home to some daisys. And some miniature dominoes. And vintage glass bottles to hold the daisys.
This vintage bird house was one of the finds I came home with the weekend my little town had their city-wide garage sales. You can read about my finds here.
It was the sweet little deer detail on each corner that convinced me I had to bring this birdcage home with me. It’s just so cute and fun 🙂
Lucy from Craftberry Bush did a Spring flower arrangement in a bird cage and I loved it. So that was the first thing I did with my birdcage. I still want to do this again with some really long stemmed flowers like Lucy did but this worked for now.
My girls would like it if we bought a real live bird to live in this adorable bird cage. Unfortunately for them their Mother has a pretty firm ‘NO-animals-in-the-house’ rule. A cute birdcage doesn’t stay cute with a real live bird in it – yes that is my opinion, but in this household it’s gonna be a fact.
The little salt cellar is one of several I bought at the auction of my Grandma’s things.
I think the bird cage is happy with its new life. It sits quietly, daintily showing off in the sunshine that streams through the nook windows each morning. On cloudy, gray days it brightens the space with its own quiet loveliness. It quite gives the room a fresh look for summer!
My teenager leaves tonight to go with the Youth Group to ALIVE! It’s a 5 day Christian concert and she is rather excited. She has packed her stuff more times than I kept track of and keeps remembering stuff on the list she hasn’t rounded up yet. Oh the memories it brings back. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – You WILL relive your teen years – through your kids. Yes, it’s a bit different being in the parents seat but it brings back all those feelings and emotions you though you were done with forever!
