Little Birdie, please hold my rose



A fun weekend of church sales and flea markets! I purchased items to sell on my Brayton Cottage shop
and etsy shop. My favorite little thing that I kept for myself is the bird vase. 
Here in my homestead kitchen. 


The vase is connected to the bird with a piece of old wire.


I believe it was hand done by the previous owner and I love it! I have seen  a similar vase that the vase was part of the original design, but I love it's handmade charm. I have seen  a similar vase that the vase was part of the original design, but I love it's handmade charm.


A late rose and fern from my garden seem right at home. 



Paired with a little block, D for Doyle, my son's name pictured here with my yorkie, Krumpet. 


An old shelf to the left holds a myriad of mementos.
 Very old candle holders flank each corbel  on either side of the shelf. 

Makes me smile each time I see it all. hope you have a great week!
