We will refer to ourselves as Marie Antoinette (the Doll Creator & maker of fabulous items) who lives in Peacock Paradise and Edie Marie (the creator of the posts and story telling on this blog & amateur crafter of many things in my "attic") who lives on Golden Pond. What great fun we have combining our forces!!

TWEET, TWEET, TWEETLE-E-DEE!

I was walking through Kohl's a couple 
weeks ago and as I was passing 
the picture framing department 
this birdcage memo holder reached out 
and GRABBED me and said,
 "BUY ME LADY! I KNOW 
YOU HAVE A PLACE FOR ME - 
A PLACE TO CALL HOME! 
JUST BUY ME LADY... PLEASE!!!" 
      

 Well I couldn't just keep walking 
after that pitiful plea. ( That would be rude.)

Then I saw it... 
a sign that had a halo around it... 
50% OFF!!
 (Do I hear angels singing?)

And I had a 30% OFF savings if I 
used my Kohl's charge... dare I?

The final price would end up being... 
about $14.00??
(The whole choir of angels were singing now!)

I didn't give it a second thought -
Come to Mama!!
and into the cart it went. 
  

 How could I resist? 
Look at how functional it is for 
important "notes"... 
 

 for photos...
 

 and for keepsakes, recipes & MORE!
(It says so!)


 The little bird on top is free to fly 
about whenever she wishes. 
 

 The birdcage came with a bunch of 
wood clothespin clips but I knew I 
needed more.  

I had purchased a package from Michaels 
that had 4 pink clothespins adorned with 
rhinestones for $2 a package for another 
project. But I wanted more of a challenge.
(Sure... let's make a project out of it instead 
of just buying the ready made ones... 
sometimes I wonder about myself.)
  
So I purchased packages of  4 clothespins 
for $1 a package and a package of stick on 
rhinestones (cheapies) and made a slew of them! 
      


Oh there's nothing more fun than a 
quick project with great rewards!
(That's what I keep telling myself.)

VOILA!
(I guess it was worth the effort.)


 
And so the little birdcage now lives 
on my vintage cedar closet door 
in my Studio 
where it gives me direction 
for my day...


 and reminds me to stay in touch 
with my favorite friends!

 
Everything is living in harmony 
in my little Studio


Thanks for stopping by to 
check out my latest Studio addition!

We'd love to hear from you!

Blessings & hugs,

  7. Hello Darlin'
    What a lucky birdcage to find you! It looks stupendous in your world!!
    Love you friend! Thank you for your comment. That isn't my house in the photo, it is a restaurant called the Stillwater Inn. My friend Sharon (standing next to me) and her husband own it. They live in a divine attic space upstairs there.
    Hope ALL is well in your world!
