Fall Birdcage Vignette

September 08, 2013
I am so pleased with the use I have gotten out of my two Bird Cages.

They are no longer in my garden, they have been rinsed off, 

freshened up and ready for the indoors and Fall.

I feel as though the time they spent out of doors gave them a bit 

more character and a little more of a chippy attitude, which is what I 

was looking for.  Don't you just love vintage with an attitude!  You 

might remember my post back in April Birdcage In My Garden

Well here they are now-ready for Fall.

You know, I wasn't a instant fan of burlap, at least in my home.  I

enjoyed seeing how other people used it in their homes, but I was

a late bloomer in that department.  Of course now I use it as 

accent pieces throughout my home.  I found these darling burlap

flowers and pumpkins at HL-40 % off -such a sweet little deal.

I really could not make them for this price.

I started wondering why it was that I was hesitant to add burlap,

and then it occurred to me that it was because I grew up on a farm

and burlap was synonymous with grain and potato sacks!  Well,

once I overcame that hangup, I was all over the burlap craze!

Pumpkins, burlap, chrysanthemums and of course apples.  Fall

and apples just go together-so when I spied these red wooden apples

I knew my vignette was well on its way.  

I play around with my vignettes.  They move from location to 

location until the perfect spot is found.  Sometimes it is the light that

is the deciding factor, other times it is the space.   

For this Fall Vignette I chose both lighting and location.  You know

what they say "location, location, location."  This little end table has 

it all and really shows off the best of my birdcages.

  11. Darling Jemma! I love burlap, but I did a post a long time ago about how my mom would have asked why I had a potato sack hanging for curtains. lol! I think that's what people who grew up on a farm probably think? I bought a burlap pumpkin at HL last year also and have bought one of those same flowers. Can't beat the price after using the coupon. I would love if you shared this with SYC.

  12. So cute! It seems like birdcages are swinging back into the spot light. I wish I could find one of those giant ones! (without the giant price tag of course) I found a baby one at Michaels a while back. painted it yellow recently from turquoise but now I'm not sure what to do with it! I certainly want to fill it with a pumpkin now though!


  13. Truly love your burlap flower - it's marvelous - your birdcages do have a perfect, chippy look and are wonderful for your fall decor - beautifully done!
    I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
