I don't wanna make a Rednesday post! I just wanna play in the garden!

Hi everyone! I confess - it's true. The computer was the last thing on my mind today. With all the unseasonable weather we've been having this week, I truly want to just stay outdoors! But, alas, I can't. Someone's got to do the housework, and drive the kids to school (and watch t.v., lol!). But, I do have some nice indoor things to show you this week.

I have some pics of my bedroom closet, believe it or not. Not the whole closet, mind you, cuz it's a mess! We have a modest Cape Cod style "cottage" - 3 bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths. But the interesting thing about the master bedroom is that it has this huge walk-in closet; and, I mean HUGE! Without taking the time to go upstairs and measure it, I'm guessing it's 8 ft. by 12 ft. - big enough to be a small bedroom.

Anyway, the wall that has my dresser against it is what I'm going to show you. Mister picked up this beautiful cabinet at a yard sale last year. I couldn't decide where to put it until a few months ago - I settled for above my dresser. I love it here! The doors are so pretty!

Open it up and there you will see my bird figurine collection. I just love the colors of the stained glass and birds in here. Especially since there are no windows.

Oh, surprise! There's Steve Irwin courting the lovely lady in yellow to the right. Haven't seen him in a long time!

Here's a close-up ~

And, here are some closer-uppers! ~

This is a wall pocket ~

This set-up brings a smile to my face every day; it's so cheerful!

Your wall pocket and bird collection is just lovely. You are reminding me that I used to have a lovely wall pocket in the shape of a cottage. I wonder where I put it??? Thanks for hosting.

Sue, I like all your various treasures. I goofed and my entry did not go through. I am supposed to be number 11 on the entries, but it does not work. I do not know how to correct it. Sorry.

mmmmm ... wow! it's a good idea to have something you love greet you in the closet ... i'll have to think about adding something to smile at, in my scary (smaller) walk-in.

happy Rednesday ... i've been gone awhile but i never disappear altogether!

Heheee....haven't seen the Steve Irwin doll in a looong time! You just never know when or where he's going to pop up, do you? LOVE that pretty cabinet. It brings the garden indoors!
Happy REDnesday,

Wouldn't I love a walk in closet! These pictures remind me of Cinderella, and all the happy birds flying around her at her window! I can see them flying off the shelf and helping you dress! Maybe I have watched too much Disney? I love how you brought the outdoors feel into a walk in closet. So pretty!
P.S. Thank you for letting me link up to your Rdnesday!

Oh goodness, that photo looks so much like one of me at that age sitting on the porch in front of the door wearing a pretty little dress and probably about the same era as that photo but I'm smiling my cheesy little smile! ;)
