Two months ago I bought this old bird-cage at Lucca's antique market! The seller told me that it's from Tyrol! I thought to repaint it, because it's a bit spoilt, but I've now decided I like it in this way! I often wonder why I love cages so much...I'm even phobic of birds... they are hanging on the wall of my balcony and from the ceiling of the kitchen!

I want to thank my German friend Iris/Herzblatt ( who gave me a nice award!!! She is so friendly and she has a very nice blog! I'll give this award to two other blogs... I'll do it as soon as possible...but now I must go to work!!!
Happy week end!!!

Love your birdcage, I`m fobic to birds too, - can`t stand it. Lovely animals, but only when they are a couple of metres from me! :-)

Your new plant is lovely, I think I had one of those a couple of years ago, light pink...?

Wishing you a nice summer in Lucca!

Ciao Vale,
I love this old bird cage very much and it was a very good decision to let it like that!! It looks marvellous!!!
I love bird-cages, too, but only without birds, because I think, they must fly, that`s much better than having them in prison.
Come stai?? Che cosa c`è di nuova?
Tu lavorare..... ...(that`s wrong, I know, please tell me : do you work all day...what is it in Italian??) tu lavor....tutto il giorno??
buona fortuna
a presto

Hello! You are my first Italian visitor and I'm happy for that! I've had a few visitors from the other Scandinavian countries and they can ofcourse understand what I write on my blog. I'm sorry for not having my texts in English (at least not yet)but in the meantime I hope you will continue visiting my blog and just look at the pictures. Have a nice weekend! Looking forward to hear from you again. Best wishes, Marie. (Sweden)

Ciao Vale,

Tanti auguri!, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
I lived in Milano for about 2 years and have not visited Lucca yet. I went often (pretty much every weekend) to Lago di Garda and Bolzano. My then love was a windsurfer and wanted to leave the city every weekend, and his parents lived in Bolzano.
I will read your blog in the next few day's it looks great and its nice to meet a new friend from my beloved Italia:).

Greetings Anita
