Cute cloche!

This is nothing new, just too cute.

Everyone has seen these all over the place, at garage sales and thrift stores, etc.









They start out life as a cheese holder...



Marrying a base of some kind to the wood round and in my case, wooden candle sticks from a garage sale. Painting it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint because it's so easy to work with...a little distressing and finishing and you have a sweet and cute cloche on a stand.

One to sell in my booth and one to keep and have some Spring fun with...loaded with faux Robin eggs.

  18. I just bought two of these at a local thrift store....one was $1.50 and the other was $2.00. (not sure why they were different prices as they were identical but anyhoo...)Thank you for the great idea on what I can do with them. I LOVE how yours turned out! I am relatively new to blogland but will be following your posts in the future.
