petite oiseau...

I am joining Jill from Gypsy Brocante over at The French Cupboard for French Inspiration Thursday today.
My friend Mary Ellen gave me this beautiful tiered tray for my birthday...


It looks like an old french zinc piece to me and is topped with a  little bird (or petite oiseau as my friend Michelle would say)...


I love the sweet little cowgal tag she attached to it...


It is perfect to hold all my price tags and business cards...



I bought the old match boxes from the shop...



I found a new mercury glass like bowl to hold my scissors, pens and pencils at Marshalls over the summer and love how it looks next to it...


The tray fits perfectly in the corner of my desk in my studio...


My desk has not looked this clean in a while!

Thanks so much Mary Ellen...I love it!
We are going treasure hunting together tomorrow...can't wait!

Thanks so much for stopping by today ~ it's the last day to enter my giveaway, don't forget!

Sandi,
I love the tiered thing your friend gave you! I am always looking for cool things to help organize my studio. Is it old? If it's a repro it's a good one! Love the pocket pillows in your WW post too. Your a lucky girl! Lisa
