For those of you who remember last autumn, I love toadstools. We arrived at the cottage to find the magic of the season has begun! These were stacked up against our patio like a busy city of homes for gnomes. I was so glad I decided to run out to take a photo that evening as the next morning, this delightful 'city' of toadstools had all but disappeared.
I wanted to show you something I found while out shopping last week with a friend. I just had to have this birdcage when I spotted it under a table at a florists shop. I had purchased it with the intention of placing it in the corner of our bedroom where a rather small pot containing ivy is hanging. The birdcage will only fit there if we change the position of the hook and our rounded ceiling is solid concrete so I decided to not do that afterall. We would have to drill a hole near the end of the rounding and I am afraid of the damage it may cause. Our ceiling in the bedroom raises up to 4 meters height in the middle and we have a sky scene painted on it with clouds and swallows.
Instead, I placed the cage on top of my armoire with a plant and one of my straw hats to see how it would look there. I placed the wooden cases I had used there in the corner where the plant is hanging to give it more of a full look. I had also intended on creating a flower arrangment in this cage but it would not be visible up on the armoire so I will leave it like this for now. I just love this birdcage.
