I'm back with a favorite new find!

Two weeks ago, I stopped at a local thrift/antique shop. I had seen a brass bird cage on a stand a few months ago and wanted to see if it was still there. It was, and I found out the shop carries consignment items. The owner told me to make an offer so I did, never thinking it would be accepted! After all, I was leaving for Chicago and miniature shows so I was saving my money...but alas (or good luck), I offered twenty dollars less than the price and after a quick call, it was mine!

I thought long and hard about putting a miniature fairy garden in it but then a good friend gave me a belated birthday gift (the handmade kitty inside the cage-I already had the English Robin)and the rest is least for now!

I have missed posting...

My new iPad is a bit too complex for me. It doesn't seem to co-operate when I want to post. I did buy "iPad for Dummies" but have yet to open it. So I am back, using my old, slow laptop.

Maybe when things slow down, I will take the time (hours for this old brain) to figure out how to post on my blog and download pictures.

  1. So good to see your blog up and running with pictures again! I wish I could help you with your iPad. Maybe that's an excuse for my work to buy me one!! I love the irony of your kitty in a bird cage. You'll have to share the scoop on your consignment shop.
