    This is so adorable and inspiring!! I already feel in a rut with my fall decor, so this was perfect! I have a stark white birdcage that I can't find anything to do with and I love how you painted yours, so now I've got ideas! I actually found you looking for instruction on burlap banners…and I'm glad I did! Thanks 🙂

    Julie, your shelves look fabulous. There are so many interesting things to look at but my favorite is your #6 with that great zebra background. Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog…it's a little intimidating starting out and figuring out how this all works! Have a happy Tuesday.
