~Pink Saturday Birdcage~



A while back, I bought a bright blue bird cage from Jenny at
SUZANNA'S.
I have very, very little blue in my home,
so......I decided to paint it pink - Sweet Pea pink to be exact.


I tried to add things that mean a lot to me.

Sheet music reminds me of my dad.





I lined the floor with a pretty pink doily from Suzanna's





I pulled some pink and cream pearls from my jewelry box

and draped them from a blingy cup
that my daughter gave me, then,
I nestled a sweet nest and bird in the cup.



I gathered some of my favorite things from around the house.






I added three pretty little china saucers to remind me of my mother.




I added a pink-winged fairy to watch over all,

added some shiny crystals all around and topped it off with a tassel.




HAPPY PINK SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
