feeling cagey


..birdcages that it! I just keep seeing them everywhere and think they add such a nice air of whimsy and magic to a home or party. Whether used to display candles or to take up empty floor space I am a very big fan.

oh yes me too... minus the bird. i don't think i would like to have a bird as much as just watch them outside.

Heidi said...

It is strange for me to think that bird cages are beautiful...but they really are. I love them all. Hope you are having a wonderful week.

Blair said...

Heidi-not weird at all!

Paula, I agree-I prefer watching the birds outdoors as well.

Heidi, it is definitely not strange for you to think birdcages are beautiful. They can add something special to any room.

My mom is a big fan and we have numerous scattered throughout our backyard. My bestfriend has an empty vintage white birdcage on a shelf! They are gorgeous.

Check out this link from Southern Weddings: http://www.swsmag.net/blog/2009/2/23/details-christa-travis-part-ii.html
It holds cards that guests have brought, (a decor option that my bride has requested).

Love them, thanks for the post Blair.

bird cages are one of my favorite images in art and design. i used to have one on my computer desktop until someone told me it was depressing. i still wear my birdcage necklace though!

I love birdcages - they are so wonderful - even empty!

Tina said...

birdcages are so beautiful, especially the antique ones (slightly old ones would do), the last image is just so beautiful!

Courtney said...

Great images, Blair. I love the first photo with the candles: so dramatic. The last photo with the white on white is gorgeous, too.

Thanks for the link love.

I just got one cleaned and set up for a couple of new birds I am getting. So I am going to in fact use it for the purpose it was intended for.:) I have a neat collection of birdcages that I bought in Germany. Your post is inspiring and beautiful.

birdcages remind me of audrey hepburn in paris when it sizzles.... i've noticed lately that i've been drawn to the birdcage look... but i too, agree with paula.... birdcage minus bird! great images x c

I love the idea of hanging birdcages above an outdoor dining table. So stunning!

Birdcages are lovely, and the photos from Anna Kern are absolutely dreamy.
