Let Me Show One of my Favorites ThriftyThings

Those of you that have spent any time reading my blog know one of my favorite things is birdcages - no live birds just the cages. Even tho I do have several faux feathered friends hanging around. So - when I found this one marked down it came home with me.
I thought it was a pretty thrifty bargain at half price.
I will be linking up with Leigh @ "Thrifty Thursday"
Laurie @ "Saturday's Favorite Things"
Cundy @ "Show and Tell"
Be sure and visit these ladies who are hosting these weekly events. It is always fun to see what others have to share.

Part of a conversation the other evening when neighbor was watering her plants.
ME - Here, let me do that. It is muddy and slippery and you are going to fall. I won't type the next thing I said !
Bet you can't guess who these jeans belong to ? Lets just say - I had ibuprofen for breakfast the next morning. That sums it up ! :-D
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Mud is a constant here. Hope it was a soft landing.
I bought another cage this weekend. The man said, as long as you're not thinking of getting another bird!

Wow! That birdcage is gorgeous. I have an addiction to them, too! Great buy!
I hope you're feeling better after that "dirty" fall. : (
Thank you, Glenda, for your kind words after my mom passed away. They meant a lot to me.

Oh, no. I hope you didn't hurt your back. That birdcage is gorgeous. I had a couple of parakeets when I was a kid. We let them out of the cage all the time. I played with them and taught them to say things and do little tricks. They both died of pneumonia when they were only about 2 years old. I remember my mom saying our climate wasn't appropriate because they were tropical. So none of us believed in purchasing them ever again. I think my love of birds since then is why I have about 10 cages. ALL EMPTY. Sorry for yakking.

Great minds think alike - I just picked that birdcage up at Hobby Lobby too! I love it and the price was right too! Have a great weekend! ~Marcy

Cass @ That Old House said...

Birdcage -- beautiful!
Mud -- even better. Oh my, Glenda, that just proves that old saying: "no good deed goes unpunished!"

I once slid and fell SPLAT in flood mud -- I feel your pain. Literally.

Love the bird cage!!!! I'm considering getting one myself!

The jeans.....the mud......your words left untyped......hysterical.
Sorry about the fall, though.

Oh my! I am glad you didn't break something. I have not been to HL in a while--too hot to go any place not absolutely necessary. I do love your bird cage and I am glad you are the one who found it--it will have a good home :) Did you love that storm??!!
