As I mentioned last week, I’m actually off visiting my mom in Las Vegas this week! But not to worry, I have scheduled a few posts in advance, just to keep you company while I’m gone.
I went thrifting with my picker/ex co-worker/friend Sue last week and one of the items I came home with was this giant bird cage.
I’m not sure if you can judge the size of that thing in that photo, but it is about 40″ tall and 18″ wide and deep.
I think the best thing about it is that it comes apart easily.
So, not only easy to transport, but easy to fill the inside with whatever you want to put in there. A pretty fern? Some books? Some sweet concrete birds?
Just don’t plan on putting a live bird in there, this thing is for décor purposes only.
I love all of the layers. Maybe simply because it reminds me of a big wedding cake, and I could really go for some cake right now.
Of course I had to give it a little bit of quandification.
I lined the pull out tray with some Cavallini London map paper.
Then I added just the smallest bit of wording above each of the doors.
Are you sensing a bit of a theme here?
The transferred words and date are both from IOD’s Label Ephemera transfer.
How fun would it be to add different things inside for each season?
This cage is really too large for my small house, but for someone with larger rooms it would be fantastic.
So, if any of you locals are interested, yes, this slightly British bird cage is for sale ($48). Send me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on this post if you are interested and we can set something up for when I return from my mom’s house. And if no one calls dibs by the time I get back, I’ll be taking this one in to Reclaiming Beautiful.
What do you think? Do you need a British bird cage?
