I bought something NEW

I like vintage. You may have guessed that. But every once and a while, something NEW catches my eye. I was at Pottery Barn last weekend, and fell in love with this wonderfully round bird cage. And it was on SALE. And I bought it.
(It's sold out online, so check your store quick if you have to have it too!)
The lady that checked me out wanted to help me decide what to put in it. And so did the lady standing in line behind me...votives! plants! pinecones! no, no, no! (but thank you, ladies)
I still don't know what (if anything) I will put in it. I thought I would browse through Etsy for some ideas:

Primitive Miniature Chair
(you know, for the hypothetical bird in that cage) from stanley:


Croquet balls
from thepetitemarket:

Big Ben Alarm Clock from MidwestFinds:

Milk glass bud vases from jwhite2:


Toy Bowling Pins and Ball
from CampHobachee:

Oh, this is fun, I could go on and on...and yes, all of that stuff was from the vintage side of Etsy...I like vintage!

I think the cage looks lovely with those two birds in it and nothing more!

Love it and your ideas for inside it. Please check my shop for ideas, too...I have a pair of mini brass giraffes who'd look so whimsical in this cage. Your very own mini-zoo!
