I've gone to the birds!
It started with a vintage bird cage I purchased in Idaho on a shopping spree.
It came with the sweet rhinestone brooch!
Of course, I couldn't stop at just one bird cage. I bought another at an antique shop. This one came with a stand. I added the rhinestone star and made the ruffled skirt.
Then I had a bright idea. Gee, maybe a couple of birds will be fun.
So, I bought a couple of zebra finch.
Aren't they cute?
The couple had 6 eggs within a month!
While waiting for the eggs to hatch, I accumulated 3 more bird cages. After all, I have to have homes for the little ones! I bought this white vintage bird cage at Bungalow in Agoura Hills.
I bought this pink vintage bird cage at Very Vintage in Agoura Hills where I rent space and sell my cutepinkstuff.
The bottom tray is secured with 3 of these cute metal owls.
Unfortunately, the finch eggs didn't hatch, but I'm anxiously waiting for more eggs. I'm hopeful for several baby birds, so I moved the couple to a new "condo" I purchased on Ebay.
I added this beautiful vintage rhinestone brooch to dress up their "condo."
It's great fun watching them.
The male has orange cheeks, speckled feathers and a darker orange beak. He has a distinctly longer songlike chirp.
He's so cute!
He's more trusting of the two.
The female has an orange beak and is more plain in color.
She has a shorter, quieter chirp, and is more tentative. We haven't named them yet, but welcome all suggestions!
