My Red Robin & Cage

Bird Cage

Hello everyon, Hope you all had a great weekend. I did but it has been very busy lately. Today I would like to share my bird cage. This bird cage has a small history, about 5 years ago I purchased this brownishtan color bird cage. Then I painted it darker brown. Did not seem to like it anymore and wanted to get reid of it. But for some reason every time we would place it in the garage it would make it's way back inside the house. Then one day just recently, I said ok this cage seems to be a keeper so let's see if I can give it life. One day while in the thrift sore I found a baggy of several items wrapped up for .50 cents, there in that baggy was a red robin. Then it clicked; Oh! I know where you bleong, so I purchased the baggie and took it home. I painted the cage white and put some decorations around it. Look at the change what a wonderful Christmas display came out of that bird cage. I did not take before pictures of that ugly brown cage, so you would have to imagine it ok. Hope you like my bird cage. Ciao

My Barbie Room

Hope everyone is having a great week, finally Friday is here and I would like to share my Show and Tell from My Romantic Home by Cindy.

Along my adult life, I met a wonderful person named Kinman in one of my jobs, Kinman was amazing, later he introduced me to his wife Stacey we became very close we became good friends. Well long story cut short she introduced me to a hobby she had.  Collecting "Barbies" WOW!! I was captured by such beauty of a doll she told me we are never to old to play dolls. I agreed and I have been collecting my own collection of Barbies  not only did she teach me the beauty of these dolls but the detail that is put into each doll that captures your feelings in life. I am not sure if it's an age thing or maturity. What ever the reason I love these dolls can't seem to have to many of them. Anyway, I have a special room for them and hopefully when my nieces come over to visit one day we will get to play  (They live out of the country) that's why I say one day. Well anyways I have added a "Chandalier" to the room and it is the cutiest thing you could imagine, it has tea cups. Yup! you heard right "Tea Cups and Saucers" it is very cute. That is my show and tell for this lovely Friday. I think it needs to be lowered a bit but my husband says no, I say yes, What do think? Anyone care for some tea? Ciao Maria

with lights on....

I like the light bulbs when they are off better, the lighting is not so great at night, I think it gives it more of a charm when they are off. What do you think? Don't miss next weeks show and tell. I may have my Barbie Christmas tree up it will be the first time I will put up it up, we are all looking forward to the outcome of that. Ciao everyone hope you all have a great weekend, we are finally getting cold weather here in Las Vegas.

Scare Crow Project

Hello everyone: After being gone for several days and weeks I am back. During my absent time I have created three scare crows a new projects of tassels. I had read some blogger 's have done so many creations that I decided I wanted to do one. So these are my finished projects. I have named them my two sisters name and mine. Because I made three so each of my sisters will receive one, let's see if they choose the one with their name. But most of all I hope they like them as much as I enjoyed making them. Next year if I have more followers in my blog, I will send one to my first follower who's name shall be posted. Good luck to everyone and remember 2010 you can be the winner. Ciao
