It seemed a thrill of pleasure

Recently for Retro Cafe Art I created this bird cage tag combining two of my favorite themes,  vintage Victorian and birds. It also has a bit of everything with china flowers, ribbons, lace and of course a feather!

 I painted and distressed the  Birdcage shape and added the Elegant Background collage sheet with the pretty female image  in the center. The edge is trimmed with ribbon then I added all the embellishments: china roses,Stickles, heart , ribbon and a pink feather. The hand cut sentiment reads "The birds around me hopped and played, it seemed a thrill of pleasure."

Hope your week is full of the thrill of pleasure!
take care,
"The birds around me hopped and played, it seemed a thrill of pleasure. "


  1. This is beautiful Gerri. I love the wooden bird cage and how you so artfully decorated it!

  2. Gorgeous piece Gerri, I love the pale pink trim running around the outside of the birdcage, it adds so much to this! Your beautiful rosebuds remind me of cake frosting, just adding to the deliciousness of it all. Happy Mothers Day. ~Diane
