Textiles

I seriously must single handedly have the largest collection of crocheted trims, table cloths & embroidered pieces ever amassed. Even more so, because I hardly ever use any of it! I did make a cover for this bird cage awhile back.... I think it turned out rather cute. The chippy bird cage and stand I picked up at a yard sale for $15.
This next bird cage was needing a cover as well... I just stitched the edges of a long rectangle piece of fabric which I added vintage crocheted trim to the edges of. Easy peasy...I have one of my beloved images that I simply treasure that I've made into a fairy inside the cage... I call him "Sweet Pete" I have him sitting on the swing inside the cage. I have over 30 bird cages of different sizes and shapes through out my home.... I know right?.... I think a few more cages might be getting some crocheted trim added to them as well.
I've linked up to Freckled Laundries textile linky party, and Beverly's Pink Saturday linky party.

I have the bird cage collecting gene too but I only have about 7 and one has real birds. My pink Bourke's parakeet would love to be in a pink cage I think.

I love cages...when our girls where small we had a big one, full of birds, parrots and singing birds...it was so nice to hear the chirping in the morning as we walk up!
Have a blessed Easter.

Cheryl,

I could just die...I want a cage like that! The one that I've found they want $60 for it...how lucky for you to find it at that price. I might be able to compare with your stash when it comes to old linens, crochet and vintage and new fabric.... :0)

Pink Sparkles,
Stephanie ♥

Girl, you are so clever. Love that idea! And I am so jealous. I am looking and looking for a bird cage stand. I should be so lucky to find one at a yard sale...I can only hope. Hope you had a glorious Easter weekend. :)
