Well, I made a birdcage hanging planter, just like Cheri's! When I went to the nursery and asked Linda (the owner) if she still had that old birdcage, she said yes in fact the price was reduced! "What are you going to do with it?" she said. I've got a new idea! So after I got all the plants, moss, etc., together and paid for it, I told Linda what I was going to do. And after I got the whole thing put together, planted some short allysum, and trailing allysum, a pretty trailing yellow flower and hanging petunias, I sent an email to her. Now she is looking for another old birdcage!!
The thing is I must have "something" about birdcages - I have three that I don't use for the birds! See the other two pictures below.

This is the lamp above my kitchen sink...I thought of the idea, and my honey made it happen! What a sweetie he is!

And this is a shelf we made from an idea I got from another blogger; Tina at She has some really terrific ideas, and a very cheerful home!

My sister is pretty creative also, take a look at the crystal yard, bird feeder she made for me for Mother's Day: Isn't it sweet!

Please don't think twice about the shabby "needs to be painted" porch, that will get done very soon, I promise!

Oh, and one more thing; Baylee's latest picture! She is getting so big, she loves to play and get dirty too! She seems to be very smart and catch on pretty quickly...funny little girl!

Gotta go.....take care, and may God Bless Y'all!

Hi Marilyn, Thanks for stopping by and for seeing how BIG sweet Madison is getting! You're right too, she DOES have the chubby cheeks like the lamp base you used for my lamp! She stuffs them full nowadays too with food, she has like 11 teeth! She's so precious! I LOVE your birdcage planter and over the lamp at the table too and all your other lovely birdcage goodies! Now I'm going to be keeping my eye out for a birdcage too! Good to say hi to you again! Suzie

What a creative idea! I love your hanging planter. And Baylee is growing up fast! Your bird feeder is such a wonderful gift. I bet it was fun to plan and put together.

HI Marilyn,

Thanks so much for stopping in and leaving such sweet comments! Unfortunately that wallpaper is discontinued ;( It was made by Waverly and I believe called Cottage Roses. You might want to Google discontinued wallpaper now and then and maybe it will pop up one day! They also have lots of similar ones too and their Waverly website. Hope that helps!

Have a wonderful week! and I adore your birdcage creativity!!!

Hugs, Cynthia

Oh! I love, love, LOVE that hanging upside down bird cage planter! What a brilliant idea and it looks so pretty! I think I may have to attempt one of those myself as I have a lovely round bird cage that would do the trick. :)

Thank-you for stopping by my blog for a visit. I'm following you now and look forward to seeing more of your creativity!
