I had the enjoyment of finding an item on Craig's List to add the the decor of our home. However, upon informing my husband, I was faced with a confused individual who didn't understand the necessity of such decor.
This is what I found... I beautiful little iron bird cage with a little ivy wrapped around it. See, now isn't that beautiful? I thought so!
This is how the evening went:
(on the way there) Andrew: "What do you need a bird cage for?" me: "Because I am going to use it for decoration" Andrew: "Where?" me: "On the white buffet next to the front door" Andrew: "Are you planning on putting a bird in there?" me: "NO! A bird would not fit in there! It is much too small for that!"
(on the way home) Andrew: "So, tell me again, why do we need this bird cage?" me: "Simply for decoration!" Andrew: "But I don't understand, why would you use a bird cage for decoration?" me: "Just trust me!"
(at home, after I set it in place) Andrew: "Do you like that bird cage?" me: "Yes!" Andrew: "I still don't understand! Is that antique?" So on and so forth. We continued our bird cage discussion for a little while and I think he ended up just giving up.
I have since added a candle inside (for now) and I have it setting on our little buffet by our dining room table.
Here is a picture of the location for now, as I may end up moving it around a bit (I tend to do that a lot, to which Andrew just sits and shakes his head......sorry dear! ;) You married a designer!).
