Vintage Reindeer Barn

The pink sugarplum reindeer I painted last week asked if I could find them a nice cozy home for the Christmas season...


So I looked around, and what did I spy with my little eye?


A vintage birdcage on a stand - perfect for these sweet little deer...


I tried to make it cozy for them by covering the floor tray with pretty scrapbook paper and 'planting' some sparkly bottlebrush trees...


They even have a sweet little feathered dove to sing Christmas carols to them...


They said they're very happy with their new home and that they're hoping to stay here every Christmas! I'm sure that won't be a problem. They will most certainly have a standing reservation every December at the Vintage Reindeer Barn...
Now be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see her Pink Saturday item and to find a list of all the other bloggers participating in today's Pink Saturday!!!

Since sharing how your spiffed up your brass reindeer finds last week, I stumbled upon the ones my mom gave me years ago! I always put them out at Christmas--on my dresser, under a little tree. I love how you so cleverly displayed your little ones--and I sure they'll enjoy the company of the little bird! Happy Pink Sat! Dana

Hi Donna,
Love the reindeer presentation. They probably think they have died and gone to heaven with the view from up there. Enjoy your saturday!

Hi Donna :)

That is really cute and if we weren't moving in a month I'd drag my bircage out and decorate it too, now that I've seen yours :)

I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
love and hugs,
rue
