Anyway, I decided to line the bottom with some wrapping paper that I love. I had lined my desk drawer with it, and had some left over. After I lined the bottom of the birdcage, I added a birdnest and a battery operated candle (with timer!). Okay, some people might not care for the battery operated candles, but I love them-- especially the ones with a timer! (QVC is where I buy mine!)
This is the base of the stand. I really like it. The design is not too fussy, but decorative enough for me.
This is the whole stand. I haven't hung the art yet because I still need to paint the walls. I feel like everything is on hold until those walls are painted!
These are two more finds from the street fair-- a plant stand and a hand-made broom. The vendor said she bought the broom in England. I love the broom because it reminds me of Harry Potter. I'm going to use it as a Halloween decoration! I'd like to put a collection of pumpkins on the plant stand for fall. I'm thinking that if I purchase fake carvable pumpkins, I can carve one side for Halloween, and then turn them around for Thanksgiving. What do you think?
As you can see, I don't have landscaping in my front yard, but I do have some fall decor out there! I had a tree removed (one of many projects around here), and no longer have a lawn. I'm hoping to get it landscaped soon so I don't have a mudslide on my hands!
