When I bought this utility light bulb protector cage thingamagig from Gather in Ivoryton, CT....I knew just what I was going to do with it.....The light bulb was still in it and a burned off cord was coming out the bottom of the wooden handle. My dad took out the cord and removed the bulb....I promptly put a tiny bird's nest complete with a few downy feathers in the cage and placed a quail's egg inside.... After I took this photo I tied a wide soft brown and cream striped ribbon on it and it hangs in the lake house.....
Imagine my surprise tonight when I walked into Anthropologie and there was an entire wall of these thingamagigs!
Who knew? Hope your weekend is going well! :) Laura
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
