Well, we are at our trailer at the campground now. This is the week we open up our trailer for the season. It is also the Maple Festival and we attend every year. This year however, we actually rented a space to sell our herb products and some of the things that I have been making. Wish us success!
Okay, now I have to
blame dedicate this post to Miss Marty at A Stroll Thru Life! She has gotten us all to look at our cloches in a different light. She has introduced a lot of us to the whole concept of decorating with cloches. She hosts fun cloche parties. Well, the princess is absolutely enamored with cloches. I think just having something untouchable under glass fascinates her. She will sit on my lap as I visit different blogs showing off their cloches and she will just “ooh and ahh” over them. And she tells me that when she gets bigger she is going to have her own cloche. Yup, she really is only 3 years old. LOL
So, as her Easter gift from me, I decided to make her a cloche of her very own. I found a cheese dome at the thrift store that had a wooden knob instead of the glass kind, which is what I was looking for. It didn’t have a base so, it was $1.00. I had found this little Precious Moments finial at the thrift store. It was marked $1.49 but, it was half off day. And I found the cute little fairy at the dollar store. All the other things came from my crafting stash.
I grabbed an old white salad plate to use as the base. I glued the fairy down and then drizzled glue around her and tore apart a couple of cotton balls to glue on to look like she was resting on a cloud.
I want to thank everyone who joined last week’s party! Here are our three featured thrifty participants' from last week!
Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict made these wonderful thrifty decoupage eggs. Love them!
Jocelyn at Just a Little Southern Hospitality thrifted this awesome vintage Oil & vinegar and salt & pepper set. What a great find!
