The biggest cloche ever!

I don’t remember the last time I went to a garage sale. Something about stepping onto someone else's property and scouring through their things has always made me feel uneasy.
Today I decided to step outside of my comfort zone (thrift stores) and go to a garage sale. I stopped at one sale with my BFF before the rain came down in torrential buckets.  All I needed was this one sale because I found this beauty for $3.00! It’s huge!
My daughter picked me a small piece of lilac which I placed inside. I wish I could preserve the scent and it’s beauty forever.
Look at the detail on the mirrored pedestal.
I have to come up with something to display in here, something worthy of it’s beauty.

I am linking up to Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.
And it's almost Thursday which means I get to link up to the thrift party at Tales From Bloggeritaville.


  1. Ughhhh lucky! Love it! Good find!

  2. What a great find! I can't wait to see what you come up with to put inside.

  3. OMG it's awesome! I have a really tall on that I put a vase with silk orchids in for our bedroom. I can't wait to see what you do with yours!

  4. This is just beautiful! What a great find! I haven't stepped out of my comfort zone yet...I prefer thrift stores myself. However, you've inspired me to take the next step! Keep us posted as to what you decide to display. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Wow! Lucky find!! I've been looking for a cloche or ten....I'm sure you'll come up with some creative ideas!

  6. WOW... What a find! Isn't it incredible what people dispose of?? lol I always find it hard to believe that people don't find beauty in certain things. I'm STILL looking for one of those!

  7. oh my, I am drooling with envy! thinking of how much you could fit in there...can't wait to see!


  8. That is such an awesome find! I can't wait to see all the ways you use it.
    Thanks for visiting. The cricut is expensive but since I use it to make things to sell it seems a little more justifiable.
    Have an awesome week!

  9. I just saw one about this size in a gift shop for about $80! Leaving your comfort zone paid off!

  16. What a lovely find!! I am sure you will find a treasure worth to display in this beauty.

  17. Um, SCORE! I need to find a find at a garage sale like that!

    You have inspired me now to go, also.

  18. What a great find! I love cloches but always have a hard time deciding what to put under them myself. It's wonderful that it came with the base, too.
