Vintage Bird Cage for a Fairie

Okay, so I am totally in love with own creation. I may not be able to part with this one - at least until I make a few more. First of all, let it be known that the fairie who makes this cage her home has total control over her own comings and goings. No caged fairies around here!
Here's a view through the front door. She has a crocheted rug on a floor of moss, a twig chair, and a vintage cocktail napkin for a table cloth.
A close-up of her hammock, a cotton quilt encased in brass-colored tulle. Notice her overhead crystal.
And finally, a rear view. The back of her cabinet is decorated with an actual butterfly wing, and bells are strung from the outside to tinkle in the wind.
Okay. One more picture. This one shows the basket of flowers on the table, the mirror on the back wall, and the antique radio on top of her blue cabinet.

I have another vintage birdcage awaiting decor and have spotted a few more at the local flea market. Can't wait to start on the next one.

In this scene, a young bird awaits a fairie's return.

And here's a really cute owl purse recently completed by Aline.

Wow! That's a lot of pictures. We've been busy making, but not keeping up with our etsy store and our blog. Do check back soon. Lots of new stuff is due to go up on our etsy site.

November 13, visit our booth in Norcross at the Pinckneyville Arts Center holiday sale. Then, the next day, join us in Athens for an intergenerational Fairy Harvest Scene workshop at the new space Whole: Mind, Body, Art. You can register here.

That's all for tonight. Thanks for reading. ---Lorena
