CRAFT: We <3 Pets
I love the Far West Trading Company in Graton, Calif. The charming shop features treasures from the orient, including antiques and replicas directly imported from China. I have always admired this hanging birdcage.
The cage is made of wooden slats as thin as matchsticks, with incredibly detailed and ornate carvings.
The inside is hung with tassels, a swing and pretty porcelain dishes for food and water. I think it’s perfect, even without a song bird inside!
Visit owners Lou and Gary and their handsome dog Frank Sinatra online at, or in person at their lovely store.

    I love heelers. I have a red and two blues and named my business after my first. Such smart dogs! LOL, I know the article was about bird cages but I get excited to see that breed anywhere :)
