Run! It's a Bird!

First, I want to say how much I enjoyed all your 60's appropriate comments on my last post, "Get Your Groovy On!" What fun!! Oh, and yes - there was a 'fish' swimming in one of those lava lamps, for the very observant!:)

I also want to welcome all my new followers in the last month or so! Thanks for following - I hope you enjoy my little fringed portion of the web! I look forward to your visits!

Alrighty then, onto other things:

I have a couple of vintage type birdcages for you today.

I posted an unusual vintage door window on this blog  here, but I thought I'd re-post it with these birdcages as Chrissy from Chrissy's Cardland suggested it would work well as a type of fence for a bird to sit on. I thought it was a pretty good idea!

 Plus, this post just wouldn't be complete without a bird...........

What? LOL....It's a bird!
Okay, so the truth is... I don't have a bird. Sorry! Keep checking back though, one day I may come across one to share with you!

Chrissie, from Chrissie's Cardland made a gorgeous card using the door window frame. You have to go and see what she did with it! SO creative!!

Here's another one from Jessica, at Jessica's Craft Shaque. Such an original way to use these images!!
Have a good week!


  1. Hi Carmen...I'm one of the new followers and I think you can read my find because I adore ostriches and at the moment birdcages are 'in'...if I use any of your gorgeous images, I'll show it to you!
