Hello friends of Darby's lovely blog, I am really excited to be here today! I'm Lindsay, and I blog over at Southern Lovely. I love creating beautiful things for less. Which means I am usually deep into a DIY, sewing project, painting project, anything that I can be creative with. I am also a busy mom of three little ones--who limit my crafting time quite a bit. Late nights is usually when I do my best work. :)
One day as I was checking out a local thrift store I came across this lovely little Cloche. I was shocked when I saw the price tag of $3, I knew I had to take it home. Since it was only the top, I knew I had to come up with something to place it on. I tried a few things at my house, but they weren't big enough. Then I saw a little pizza tray that I had bought from the Dollar Tree, and it was a perfect fit. I started with a small candlestick, but it just didn't give it enough support, so I had to move on to the larger one, which was also purchased from the Dollar Tree. And guess what, it worked! I hot glued the candlestick to the pizza tray, painted it white, & then I had a great new Cloche, all for $5! I added the green apples, which I purchased from Michaels. So, what do you think?? I'm pretty happy with my $3 find. :) Any fun thrift store finds that you all have come across? I bought a few other things that day, they will be next on my list. :) Thanks for letting me post here today! And please feel free to stop by & say hi, I love meeting new friends!
See! Lindsay really IS amazing! This is such a gorgeous cloche! Make sure you stop by Southern Lovely and leave her some bloggy love and check out some of her other fabulous projects! Have a great weekend!
