a gold birdcage

At the flea market this weekend, I was momentarily intrigued by a gold birdcage and stand...

... but then I became distracted by a table of vintage costume jewelry and that was that. Now, I come across the gorgeous home of fashion designer Erin Fetherston which features a beyond lovely birdcage in her beyond lovely living room and all I can think is, why didn't I pay more attention to that damn birdcage when I had the chance?

At least now I have a shopping mission when the next flea market rolls around. Oh, and by the way, Miss Fetherston's bedroom is quite lovely too...

I love that wall colour with the shades of cream. Gorgeous!

And isn't that always the way? I remember I saw a gorgeous little bar cart once and then a week later saw a blog post with piles of pretty pictures of bar carts. Of course the item is never there when you go back and look for it!

I love this muted look with tiny pops of color. Easier to manage with the white walls of a rental. And I think that Gold birdcage is a must. Also a must is bringing me along on the next antiquing trip. Serious. Can we plan one for June?

Birdcages are beautiful, I have an old timber Chinese bird cage, so ornate!

Love the gold birdcage; you must stalk that vendor again next time to see if it's still available. That living room is luscious. The soft tufted ottoman and the sumputous draperies... pretty!
