WIRE WORKS

FOR YEARS I'VE HAD THIS BOX OF THREAD COVERED WIRE, OF VARIOUS GAUGES AND COLORS , THAT WERE USED FOR MILLINERY FOUNDATIONS. WHEN I SAW THIS BOX AT A FLEA, I JUST LOVED THE VINTAGE LOOK OF THIS COVERED WIRE AND HAD TO HAVE IT. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS GOING TO DO WITH IT, BUT FROM TIME TO TIME I WOULD TAKE THE BOX OUT AND LOOK THROUGH IT HOPING TO BE INSPIRED. WITH SPRING COMING AND BIRDS RETURNING FROM THEIR WINTER VACATIONS, MY THOUGHTS TURNED TO BIRD CAGES, FRENCH LOOKING BIRD CAGES TO BE EXACT. THE SILK THREAD COVERED WIRE WAS PERFECT FOR THE SIMPLE SHABBY, CAGES I HAD IN MY HEAD. I'VE SOLD A FEW OF THEM IN MY SHOP BEFORE I HAD A CHANCE TO TAKE SOME PICS, SO I MADE A FEW MORE. I LOVE THE WAY THEY TURNED OUT......... AND MY FRENCH BIRDS ARE ENJOYING THEIR NEW HOME!
