Bird Cages and Candles
This post may contain affiliate links.
I am long overdue in sharing my birdcages. There are only two, but I always have an eye out for a new one (or two) since I love decorating with them. It's a quick post, since I injured my back and sitting at the computer is painful - but more on that later.....
There's just something about candles on a winter night. This birdcage has been in our home for over 10 years. For the longest time, it housed faux birds and everyone who came into the house thought they were real.
As you can see, the most recent inhabitant is a set of candles. They are flameless and are controlled with a remote. I love the fact that they are real wax and the flames are very realistic.
My other birdcage was the result of an upcycled Ashtray Stand. One of my favorite projects.
Here it is decorated for winter:
A few pinecones and some faux greens are a nice transition from the holidays to winter.
Here's a quick video of it last Fall:
Love a flickering candle!I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow. If you click on those 3 little lines at the top left of the blog (on the Home page), you'll see where to find me...or click on the icon below to share.
Here's another look with brighter light:
I really do love these candles. They look real, have a remote that can control the brightness, and set a timer, which is really important right now due to my back injury.
Feel free to laugh - I hurt my back in a yoga class - over 3 weeks ago! So much for low impact and good stretching.
It's turning out to be the most expensive yoga class ever - a visit to the Dr - 2 prescriptions - x-rays - and physical therapy.
I keep telling myself I'm not as young as I used to be and healing takes time, but I'm ready to be healed! In the meantime, I'm hoping physical therapy is the key.
Thanks for stopping by The Cottage. I do have more projects in store for you - I'm working on them standing up. The tough part is sitting and writing the posts...maybe I can stand at the kitchen counter with my laptop...?
