Look what I bought from our local charity shop last Saturday. I spotted it first the day before, but then I wasn’t sure where I could display it, so I didn’t bother. Well, as the day progressed I kept thinking about this wooden birdcage, then later, whilst having a coffee in the conservatory, I found just the place. Of course, by this time the shop had closed and I was quite convinced that I’d find by tomorrow, it had been sold.
Next morning, just gone 9am I phoned and asked, ‘Do you still have the bird cage I saw yesterday’. ‘Yes’, the girl said, ‘its still here, I’ll put it to one side for you to collect later’. I was delighted!
So here it is on a shelf in the conservatory and I love it. My first thoughts were to put a trailing plant inside, but on closer inspection the door is too small. You’ll see if you click to enlarge the picture I have placed a little posy of silk flowers and two of my favourite angels inside, but I’ve just got to remove them, poor things look imprisoned.
Reflection Through The Seasons
I live in a small Welsh village which is situated in the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. Its an area of true outstanding natural beauty. We have the Cambrian mountains to the east of us and the coast of Cardigan Bay out to the west. My husband and I moved to Wales from The Cotswolds in England 19 years ago. We bought the old village Police Station, which we have worked tirelessly renovating ever since. You could say its a real labour of love. I have retired after working many years in the travel business, this now leaves me free to pursue the many things in life that I enjoy.
