and no, I'm not talking candy bars, folks. I wanted to do something in the birdcage on top of our hutch and finally today had one of those all too rare flashes of inspiration. To continue with this streak of luck, I even remembered where the burr oak acorns I picked up last year were stored. Here is the result. It's on the dining room table now, but Mr. B can put it on top of the china cabinet when he gets home.
