Antique Festival of the Ozarks this Weekend

For anyone local to the Southwest Missouri area, just wanted to let you know that the Antique Festival of the Ozarks  will be held this weekend at the Event Center at the Ozarks Empire Fairground, here in Springfield. This is the 3rd year of the show and it just gets better and better.

 Vendors from Oklahoma, Ohio, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and all throughout the Midwest will be there. It's a good sized show, indoors, so don't worry about the cold and wind, it's warm inside! I'll be there shopping, with camera in hand!

And if you haven't joined in for Vintage Inspiration then just scroll down to the last post, still time to join the party!

What to do with vintage birdcages...

They were a huge fad a few years ago, but now they've become a staple in vintage home and garden decor. In the last few years I've bought and sold many of them, but now I'm keeping the ones I have left to sprinkle here and there, in the house and garden. Here are just a few I grabbed for a photo vignette.

We've had parakeets and a conure in the past, but cats and birds in the same household can be a little stressful on everyone. (mostly the birds) But an empty birdcage is a little sad to me, so fill it with something fun and it feels like a cloche; a great place to display plants, candles, flower pots, even dishes, but don't forget the little birdies!

(the backdrop is my antique dressing screen that I papered in pages from an antique French Language Lesson book).
