Birdcage Vignette and Dancing to the Furniture Shuffle

Okay….so we buy one thing and then here comes the “domino effect.”

Then we find another great deal and I am finding myself

dancing to the beat of the “Furniture Shuffle”

However, I do not need to purchase anything to warrant the dance.

Just the need for a change. Change is always a good thing.

There are some changes in the Master Bedroom that caused the relocation of the bird cage.

Where oh where was I going to put it?

If I did this . . . then I would have to do that . . . and so it goes . . . and this is what happened.

Linen Chest-Housepitality Designs

I wanted to bring the birdcage back into the main living area

however there was no surface area available that I could place it on.

So I created one!

This chest was in the Master Bedroom in which I basically stored my table linens in it.

It had been in this very same spot a couple years ago and when I relocated my secretary

to make room for the Antique French Buffet, it went back to the bedroom.

I do have to thank my hubby for putting up with my moves on a whim

although, I must say, I did put a little thought into this.

Of course I needed to gather some items to coordinate with the bird cage

to bring a great summer look too.

The limited edition Audubon print (a gift from my sister) hung next to the front door.

I thought it would be perfect in its new home.

The ironstone chamber pot with a combination of a live plant and a faux topiary

came from the kitchen and on to the chest for added color and texture.

The cute ceramic bird basket is a recent find from HomeGoods (formerly located in the sunroom)

I created a new look by shopping the house and dancing to the furniture shuffle

with my dance partner.

It is great little space that has a great view beside it . . .

Also the view that I have when I am blogging and on my computer.

I am hoping my pansies will last a bit longer; however, Mother Nature may not allow that.

Our temps here are climbing . . . Oh Happy Summer!

Have a wonderful day!! Making your own kind of music and dancing to the song!

  8. You do the furniture shuffle so well, Shirley! I think it’s fun to move things around – keeps everything fresh (plus it forces me to really clean lol). The little bird basket is the perfect accent for the birdcage, as is the print. It all looks lovely.

  11. I love dancing to the beat of the furniture shuffle. Love the vignette. fondly ~lynne~

  12. I reeeally like this change, Shirley. The highboy chest works perfectly on that wall, and the gardeny vignette on top adds such a summery feel. I also like the idea of combining the faux and live greenery. Beautiful view…I’m having a hard time parting with my pansies too…maybe they’ll hang on another week.

  19. Love the new shuffle looks good and I love the bird cage. I am always trying to shuffle pieces around, but have no hubby to do the lifting, soooooo it does not get done unless I can push it to where I want it to go. The view that you have while on your computer is great.
    Love the bird cage – where did you find it at?
    Have a wonderful summer weekend. My cousin is already complaining that its to darn hot, so I guess I will wait until September or Oct to go back to VA. As I can’t breath when it gets to got and humid.

    I love combining the real ivy with the faux. It is fun watching all your furniture shuffles. My husband would not be so understanding 🙂

  23. I just love birdcages Shirley, and this looks so summer pretty! Sometimes I think our sweet husbands have learned it’s easier to just do it and be done! Ha! Moving furniture around is almost as good as having something new to play with, makes everything look so fresh and different!

  24. Your furniture shuffle was a good one, and everything looks fabulous together! Your home always looks like a showroom! Comfy, but beautiful:)

  25. Oh Shirley, you know how I love birds. This is a great vignette! On closer inspection I realized that your Audubon print is of painted buntings, my favorite songbird! They are not seen often but where we live we are fortunate to have them every May through August. They are incredibly beautiful as is your decor!

  26. Love the furniture shuffle! We have been doing that quite a lot in this new house trying to make things work! Love your birdhouse vignette. Really love that sweet bird basket!

  34. Beautiful vignette! Oh I am so glad I am not alone in the furniture and decor shuffle. I did a little bit of it myself today!! I love birds so I really enjoyed the theme of your vignette!

  35. Your furniture shuffle was a great success and it all looks beautiful Shirley! Hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend. 🙂

  36. I like that. The ‘furniture shuffle’. I’m going to come up with a dance and if I get to Haven again someday we’ll put on a show with it. Remember ‘blurred lines’? lol We’ll show them youngins how it’s done.

  38. Love it, it looks great – also love the recent Home Goods find with the sweet birds on it.


  39. Everything looks so pretty, Shirley! You have the knack for creating the prettiest vignettes. Love your view, as well! I just pulled my pansies a couple of days ago. With all the rain we’ve had, they were droopy and starting to look straggly.
