Home Is The Perfect Nest

Good Sunday to all.  Hope you are having a great week end.

I am doing a post on my birdcage I bought recently at the flea market.


This is the sweet birdcage I got at Elkhorn Flea Market this past week end.  I was really excited to get this and had high hopes for putting her on top of my entertainment cabinet.  She was about 10 inches too tall so the hubby made some adjustments to have her fit on the cabinet.



Here she is with a new coat of paint.







I added my love birds that my hubby bought me awhile ago for our anniversary.  I adore these love birds and loved putting them in the middle of this bird cage.
Aren't they sweet.
Had this old column piece and added them on top of that with some flowers and greenery.


In the other side door I added my fabric pumpkin for fall decor.  I cannot wait to switch out fall for Christmas.  This bird cage will be fun to decorate for Christmas.  I can see some trees and some italian lights on those peaks.

I have one of my favorite little cherubs in the other side.



Doesn't she looks so happy to be in the bird cage.

Added a couple more sweet tweets in the cage.



Re hung my Bless this Sweet Nest picture.


Just a few changes on the other side of the entertainment cabinet.


I got this sweet little bird cage at the flea market yesterday.


There you have it the bird cage re do.  I will be excited to decorate it for Christmas with some fun angels, trees and some little italian lights on those peaks.  Sorry the pictures are gray looking but it was not a sunny day today.
Have a great start to the week.
Kris

  37. Oh, oh oh! Kris,
    I love your new flea market find, that cage is a delight to have and of course it was painted white with your beautiful hands involved. She fits perfectly above the cabinet unit without an inch to spare. Sometimes things just work out just right.
    My only regret is that I did not find it first floating around here at one of our fleas it would be a perfect fit above my white cabinet in my kitchen that is still waiting for something great.

    Thank you for your beautiful visit and yes I will be making more of those crowns :)

    Oh, not sure i told you this but Jennifer emailed me and asked if she could move me to the February issue, it seems with all my rustic love and romance she felt I would be better suited for her feb issue, of course I said move me where ever and when ever, sad that I won't see myself sooner, but I am excited to see the romance she drums up.
    So watch for me in the Feb issue as I still look at yours often.

    Lots of love and a beautifully inspiring fall to you.

  40. I can't believe Mr. JCC could retro fit a bird cage. Is there anything that man cannot do? Your fall décor is charming. Just love that room. Even with the cloudy day, your room is cheerful.

  49. Hi Kris,
    Sorry am late. As a full time career woman and dealing with the economy (Acct Manager) in one of Sweden's largest bank, is not easy to find a time to blog-rolling the world. On top of that, I dance 3x a week after work. Geee...

    But am here and so drooling of your treasures. Bless You.

    Enjoy your weekend with your lovelies.

    Hugs from D´Box,
