Good Monday morning everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I sure did what with celebrating my first wedding anniversary with my wonderful husband and then my birthday yesterday! But now it's back to the grind and I'm getting ready to head out the door for another long work week!
Before I head out to get this week started, I wanted to share my latest Dollar Tree makeover. Actually, one of the pieces for this makeover came from a local pottery store but since it only cost me ninety-nine cents, I guess it could have come from the Dollar Tree too! I love cloches, and have seen several bloggers that make them from the most amazing things, things that you wouldn't ordinarily think of using for one. Well, I didn't make one, but I was lucky enough to find one at a favorite local pottery store. I couldn't pass it up since it was less than a dollar! So I snatched that bad boy up and it sat in my craft room for weeks because I didn't have anything to display it on. Then inspiration hit when I was standing in the Dollar Tree looking at candle supplies. I picked up a glass candlestick and a glass candle plate. I was so excited when I got home and put them all together, but I didn't like the fact that it was all glass so I decided to change that! Here's what I started with:
Eh, o.k. I guess, but I like color so I decided the plate and candlestick needed to be painted. And since I'm a HUGE fan of black, that's what I went with. After they dried, I glued the two pieces together with some Liquid Nails adhesive and voila, a beautiful base was born for my cloche. And one of my dearest friends got me a Willow Tree friendship figurine for my birthday, so that is what I put under my cloche. Here's the finished product:
I love the way it turned out and for $3 and some glue, you can't beat the price!
I'm feverishly working on some things for my giveaway and hope to be able to share all that with y'all on Wednesday.
Well, that's all I have for now. Gotta get off here and get out the door! I'm late as usual!!
Until next time. . .
