Another Cloche

Roll Tide Roll!!!! Woo Hoo!

I taught a Pilates class this morning and went SHOPPING!!! Actually I had to exchange a dress I bought at Marshall's yesterday. Needed a smaller size. :D I can always handle that.

Thought I would run by TJMaxx. I am in an online Tea Swap and I found something to finish up my swap there. I also found a vase for $2.99! I had an extra votive from the $$$ store to use up and an extra final around the house so I bought it. I also found another plate to use, not that I needed another plate, but it was blue. I like blue.

I also went to Home Goods. It is in the same shopping center. I found some blue and white turkey plates, but I only wanted one. And they were in boxes of 4 so I did not get any. I found a Beatrix Potter plate to hang on the wall of the Beatrix Potter room (saving for another post).

Here are my two cloches. The new one is on the right. Not satisfied with the tops. Need 'tweeking'.

Here his the vase I bought yesterday. I swapped the finials. I think I like it better. It has a more formal look. (edited to add, this finial was Ed's grandmother's. It was one of her things that he wanted and I just move it around the house. I think it looks good on the vase.)

And the new $2.99 vase from todays TJMaxx trip. Plate below $3 from TJMaxx. I like the look together and adds color to my kitchen.

Now back to work!

You are an awesome cloche-making wild woman! I love it!

And I agree, the fancy finial looks better on the first one. The simpler Lowes finial works better on the new one.

Very cool!

Any person as creative as you, who also like blue, should post on my Blue Mondays. Just come back and check out the instructions. Look for the Blue Jay or Blue Monday button in my sidebar.

The old finial really adds to the beauty of the hand made cloche.
And they look so fun filled to the brim with gourds!
