Nesting

I am in love with the beautiful bird cages that I have seen lately. The problem is, the lovely things are just so darn expensive! As always, I have found a more frugal approach to adding these items to my home. A few thrift store finds brought me some gorgeous nesting homes...perfect for Spring!
Green vines...most definitely not my thing...
...transformed into a beautiful white centerpiece.
I have had this one for awhile but recently decided it needed to be white.
And I am so glad I did!
This mini cage was too adorable to pass up!
I sat it on top of a little bird bath for some added height and bird appeal.
Isn't she lovely?
I also recently found these little signs at the Dollar Tree that had silly Easter sayings on them. I spray painted them with chalkboard paint for some fun little signs.
This is a sneak peek to a mirror I also found at the thrift store...you know there will be some paint involved! I also hope the little Easter treats are getting you in the mood for more Easter decorations...I will be posting those when it gets a little closer.

Are you into the bird fad? What fad can you just not get enough of right now?

  1. So cute!! I love them all! And what a clever idea with those signs from the Dollar Store!

    You know I'm into the bird fad. You saw my post a couple weeks ago! :) I do love the bird cages. I love the eggs, the nests, and I love it on kids apparel.

  5. I love everything. Especially the cupcake sign.... I might need to steal, or "borrow" that idea.

    Great job.

  11. Those cages are so sweet. I've been wanting one like that forever! But, the actual bird r]craze that is flying about, I don't get it, at all. I see it everywhere, but it's just not for me.

    What cute little chalkboard signs. I didn't know that paint came in a spray can too!

  17. Hi Ashley! I bought a birdcage a few months ago...and just havne't had a clue what to do with it. It's really cute but I just set it in my laundry room waiting to use it. I loved your idea of putting it atop the little stand. I may do that myself.

    I love birds...but bc so many people in bloggy land do, I feel like I'm jumping on some sort of band wagon. I really like crows. :) And sparrows.

  19. I love all the touches of spring around your house. I am on the hunt for a thrifty birdcage. I refuse to pay the big bucks they are asking for them at HL. I think my persistance and patience will pay off...I hope!

  25. Ok, I MUST go to bed, but your link to the painted hutch got me studying your post like a text book. :) WOW - you are AMAZING!! Can't wait to go browse the really old posts now and get all caught up.
    Did you have a blast today? Yes, just a little jealous....ha - lotta jealous. And I'm following you now on Twitter, so that will be fun. :)

  26. I do like the bird fad, I didn't realize it was a fad until I started seeing it everywhere. I really like anything French-inspired right now, and also anything Baroque (like your background wallpaper). I LOVE your birdcage, I see them in places like TJ Maxx and Marshalls - but I agree with you - they are too expensive at those stores. Great thrifty find!

  28. Love your birdcages. I have two, but I cant find a thrifty nest and eggs to put in it.

  29. Uh, yeah, birds, nests and spray paint. That's pretty much me in a nutshell. ;)
    LOVE your birdcages. I haven't scored any yet, but am stalking the thrift stores!

  30. I love the chalkboard painted signs. What a great idea!

  31. I just came over from the spray paint party post. I spray painted a $10 birdcage I scored for my wedding and then my sweet fiance (now husband) used wire clippers to cut out two wires so there was a slot for the birdcage to hold the cards at our wedding. :) You can see them here if you want: http://sundrenchedmoments.blogspot.com/2008/04/diy-wedding-birdcage.html
