Haiku My Heart ~ Song of Light

Song becomes this light,
time escapes these bars in flight,
sing these years so bright…


I have had this Victorian bird cage
since I was a teenager.

We found it in one of the beautiful old houses
torn down to make way for Highway 101
that replaced the Old Redwood Highway outside
of Geyserville, California in the late 60's early 70's.

This past week,
I had the idea to string it up with tiny LED lights,
and I must say...
it brings me much delight
to see something so old
transformed into something so new
and bright...

It is a bright sparkly spot, holding such light and memories!

how...did you hide the electrical? or is it battery powered

always wonder about these things.

Steph, these are electrical with a clear cord that does not show up in the pictures! They do come battery operated, but I decided to go with the electrical. I got them through Amazon and they do come in other colors. XO

I saw the first photo and thought: 'what is it for awesome lamp... is it a cage with little twinkle lights? " ... and yes, it is! Fabulous! And that corner is just perfect for it! Enjoy, enjoy the light!
