For the Birds!

I saw a listing for "home decor" on Craig's List and I decided to check it out. It
was an indoor sale (thank goodness because it's hot in AZ right now)
and everything that was available was showcased in the owner's huge living room. She had silk plants, pictures, vases, pillows, candles, lamps, and a ton of other things that she wanted to sell before her move to Arkansas. I bought a cute photo album for a $1.00, and a patriotic basket for .25! I walked by this bird cage twice before I finally looked down at the floor and saw it sitting on the carpet. I picked it up and saw a price of $3.00 so I immediately added it to my stash. The photo doesn't do it justice as it is really cute with a design on the bottom, and it has a curvy shape. The little bird was given to me at an Arizona Bloggers luncheon, and it adds just the right touch to accent the bird cage. Overall, I'm pretty happy with my purchases and I might go back to find more!

The cat in the Elmo chair is adorable. You're so fortunate to have your mother's old salt and pepper shakers.

How fun! I never thought to look on Craigs List for decor items. Was it under the garage sale section? What a great find!
