My latest inspiration.....I wonder what these will turn out to be....

November 10th 2010 I 005


I found these amazing cute little bird cages and was immediately inspired by them...today I am working on some of my bird cages and will show you what I come up with once I am happy with the results....I have so many ideas for these....

What do you think I will make with these?

I also made these yummy baked eggs...they were so good....I highly recommend this as a nice late breakfast or a nice quick lunch....

I took two baking dishes...buttered the dishes...added two eggs in each dish...
some salt and pepper....cut cherry tomatoes....cheddar cheese, a little milk, salt and pepper and a drizzle of taco sauce on mine.....then some chopped scallions over the eggs and everything....served it with some yummy bread and it was delish!

Oh my heart just quickened upon seeing the bird cages!!! Are they wee bird cages??? They look tiny. Have you seen the tiny bird cage Christmas ornament from Pottery Barn? What ever you do with yours is definitely going to be delightful.

I have never heard of baked eggs! HOW cool - I will definitely try them out! And I too would have loved those cages - let's see, I think you may put some cut out pieces of your artwork in them? Like little figures (or birds) in the cage? Can't wait to see the results, xoxo

Oh! How about a birdcage chandelier?! xoxo

Oh, Diana, I think I would put a wee skelly in one, and perhaps a little fairy in another. I would make sure the doors could open, so they could get out to eat that yummy egg dish. :) xox Pam
