"bonjour birdie"

got a bit of a birdcage thing going on...



just can't resist them



in all shapes and sizes

and of course they all get a good touch of the white spray paint



 used a white gloss on these, yes i surprise myself being a strictly matte gal

gotta say, some things just look better with gloss
(eek, did I really say that...)

these were all thrift/garage sale finds

i love how easy it is to incorporate these smaller birdcages into home decor



here's one of my little white birdies in a cage - yup, still haven't got my bird's nest, it's still summer you know, mamma shopping has to wait....

of course I couldn't stop at just birdcages...

so I stamped up some "bonjour birdie" vintage ribbon





I know, it is sooo cute!!

here's a birdcage all dressed up in "bonjour birdie"




and these are the two birdcages that currently reside in my front hallway

the smaller one is actually a little candle holder





i'm not really a yellow gal, but I see quite a bit of yellow going on here!

can never resist sunflowers, I honestly think they are the most cheerful flower ever, they just make me want to smile :-)



hope this makes you smile too!

happy days,
Tracey

I love bird cages too although I never painted the, I love what you have done and they do look good in matte.

The ribbon is precious! I feel the same way you do about sunflowers. They just say HAPPY!!

Very, very nice. We should be able to do our local thrift store tour soon, when school gets under way and the holidays are over. Looking forward to it.
