Bird cage

I bought this beautiful piece of junk last week...
I had been on the lookout for an old bird cage
for some time and I just fell in love
with this rusty metal one as soon as I saw it.
The bits of turquoise just won me over.
Now I need to make a little birdie to live in there...
The cage is 20 inches high and
13 inches in diameter.

Your birdcage is wonderful. I have the perfect vintage stand that goes with it. Sadly I do not have a cage.

The birdcage was meant for you and you alone. Who else could possibly create the perfect birdie to live inside but you??

Have fun making and I can't wait to see the end result.

I found a birdcage on the side of the road once, but not nearly as perfect as that one. Check out these two posts for making birds. I have been putting together a collection of these ones; so addictive. http://www.spoolsewing.com/blog/2008/05/16/bird-mobile/

Love the bird cage! I've been looking for something similar myself. What a fabulous find!

I'm not sure if I've left a comment over here before, but I am a frequent visitor to your blog and I'd just like to say that I love your art (and home)!

I've just been awarded the 'Brilliant Weblog' Award, and I'd really like to pass it on to you.

:)

Details on my blog.

Cheers,

so beautiful. I have an empty birdcage hanging on my front porch which I just cannot part with. I understand the love.

I was just thinking yesterday about how much I missed the perfect birdcage I'd trashed after hanging on to it for years because I couldn't figure out what to do with it. Of course, that was before I was addicted to sewing... so I'm totally coveting yours. What a beautiful find!

It is indeed a beautiful thing. I have an old cane one that belonged to my grandmother. I love your little birdies!

The bigger the cage the better, no matter what size the occupants.I always feel sorry for a Cockatoo sitting in a cage with just one perch to stand on and not even the opportunity to hop.
