My Fabulous Friday Find!!

Lately I've been reading several home decorating blogs...for example, turning trash into treasure, decorating w/ thrift store finds. This morning I read this blog: Just Another Hang Up and was shocked to see her revamp a Cloche. After seeing what she had done, I remembered seeing one at a nearby thrift store for $1. I felt so silly for not buying. So...I grabbed my keys and rushed over there. First I found the glass dome...and for $1 I knew it was a steal!!! Then I searched around the store and found the wooden base...for 25 cents!!!!! I could hear the trumpets of heaven blowing!!!!!!!!!!
So now, I've just got to decide if I want to paint the base or leave "as is"....and for $1.25...I call this my Fabulous Friday Find!!!

Super find! Love it and if isn't scratch I would leave as is until you really decide where it is going!
