ies and lettes

not sure why i do this, but i add -ies and -lette to the end of my kid's friends names, i guess as a term of endearment. so, it only seems natural when i make things with personalities (that i love) i add the same. i have always called these cagelettes, but in doing a search on-line i found that another sweet creative soul calls her handmade cages this, although very different. so, for the purpose of selling on-line, and not stepping on any toes, i have gone with cagies. this goes back to the whole "birds of a feather" thing...we truly do flock together, and often think along the same lines. good thing i looked!

this cagie is definitely victorian style don't you think? i had to add the little flower in her beak, as if she is going around decorating her sweet abode. i've had so much fun designing and making this new batch, which is why it's so hard to part with! all are made with vintage supplies, and are available in my etsy shop. these sweet little songbirds truly are the perfect pet, not to mention p-r-e-t-t-y!

Heidi,

I am so glad you stopped by my website. I have been adoring that birdcage all morning and drooling over your blog for days. I love it all. Your work is just perfect for my home. I think I'm going to have to jump over to Etsy and take another look.

Take care Heidi and thank you,
