Everyone seemed to think that I bought myself a chook or a ute!
I couldn't possibly bring home a chook to my tiny little backyard full of weeds.... and I don't think the cat would be impressed either.
I did actually buy myself this very beautiful fire screen made from recycled corrugated iron. All of the flower petals have been individually cut and riveted together to form the flowers. I just couldn't leave it behind....
No I don't actually have an open fire requiring a fire screen - I'm going to remove the legs and use it as an outdoor piece of hanging art in my little (currently completely souless) outdoor alcove area. My outdoor setting has been made using a silver metal frame and recycled black plastic fake wood looking stuff that lasts forever, so the black and silver corrugated iron will match perfectly.
For now, my little fire screen is on holidays. I'll take a better photo when it finally arrives!
