Following on from my last post, I've been trying a few different things for the empty birdcage, including putting old books in it, but you really couldn't tell there was anything in there. Instead I left it empty and put the old books (some lovely ones I picked up for 50c each at Op Shops) on the table with a bird sitting on top. I also bought a small bird metal picture and lent it up against the birdcage.
I also finally redesigned the birds nest in the apothecary jar. I found some decorative 'bramble vine' on sale at a nursery and twisted that into a nest shape instead of the raffia. I think it looks a bit more realistic now!
I will probably still move things around a bit further...can't seem to make up my mind!
