on common ground…

this is another corner of my great room re-do—(the first post is here) I found so much of my inspiration from debra at common ground.  I loved her birdcage posts- here, and here.  I had this hendrix birdcage, that i attached to two shutters.
and you have to see debra’s suitcases here and here-—I just love them!  after finding 3 suitcases, I put them on my stool, which is now wearing an old lace euro sham.

there’s a shelf hanging on this wall—I relocated the dressform to this spot.  with bailey running around, I didn’t think she was safe on the end table.
  the cute umbrella has ruffles all along the edges.  I hung an old pocket watch on the side of it.

my husband hung a chandelier.

the last spot is my old birdbath end table, that I covered with a glass top.  under the glass is some lace, and I’ll put some pictures in later.  I love the inside of this bath, it looks like old zinc.

  2. Dear Lynn, I loved what you did!!!
    I also checked the first post, that I had missed.
    Everything is adorable!!! I LOVED the birdbath, such a great idea to turn into a table! Loved the detail, to put fabric inside and (I imagine) some old photos. I have an old body form I am thinking to pain her feet to bring to a the Vintage Market I am participating end of the month. Mine stands up from the ground. Cheers,

  33. When you get some inspiration, you don't mess around, do you, Lynn! That little sweetbriar lane sign really adds so much to the look. I'm needing a sign. My eye always seems to go right to them. I've been on the lookout for birdcages too, and the one you got is just the ticket. How am I gonna find all these great things...if you keep getting them first! Ha! Good work finding so many wonderful items and for displaying everything in such a way as to make me pause to enjoy it.
