As many of you Ange, my very lovely kiwi friend in Toulouse, gave me a gorgeous antique birdcage as a gift.
I was not sure what to do with it and asked you all for suggestions. Some of you suggested painting it and some suggested leaving it in it's original state.
I decided to wax it with some antique wax and what a difference it made to the very old and very dry wood.
I then lined the cage with very old manuscript pages and then put some dried decorations in the bottom of the cage. I then hang a small canvas in the back of the cage.
The brocantess suggested that as it was going to the entrance way of Apartment deux I should include a number 2 on the birdcage.
I already had some petite enamel numbers, so used one that I had.
The finishing touch was a pieces of white ribbon which I used to hang the birdcage from the ceiling with.
Many thanks to all of you for your wonderful suggestions, I would be lost without you.
Tomorrow afternoon, I am off to my wreath making class and will be reporting back on Friday.
Hope that you are all enjoying the fextive season where ever you are in this big blogging world of ours.
Je vous souhaite un mercredi merveilleux
