Birds, birds, birds......

So I found this adorable little bird cage at the local consignment shop today for $2.50.... isn't it fun?!!

 I've been collecting birdhouse and bird knick-knacks as we travel, and looking forward to actually doing some decorating when we go home - weird as it seems, we have nothing on our walls! Time to nest a little. Thought this little relic was so cute, and it fits the decorating style I have in mind.

Here's a sweet mama bird we saw at the National Zoo... this poem...

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

...a Willow Tree figurine that may have to make its way home with me...
 ...and a card from my first month on the Splitcoaststampers Design Team - the stamps are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and the focal image is watercolored with reinkers.

Thanks for stopping to visit me!!
