I'm hosting my first ever Treasures & Trinkets Thursday! You can put your link below in the MckLinky...please use your exact url for the page you want to link up, not just your blog site address. Your Treasure needs to be something of your own, not off a website etc. :) It can be something you've made, re-purposed, or just something you love. Please put a link back to my page if you don't mind. :) Lets have fun looking at all the lovely things we all want to share! Here's mine.....
This is another one of my spring fever projects. :)
I got the bell jar (or cloche) and base on clearance from TJ Maxx (My FAVORITE store in the world!), it was only $12.00! The base was black when I got it, but I gave it a nice coat of an antique cream color to make it less jarring to the eye. (and to match my house!) lol
I found a basket at Michael's craft store that had all the nest looking material around the top...it was in bad shape so I got it for next to nothing. :) I think it was like $2.00 bucks! I took all the nest material off the top and made my own little bird nest out of it. (this is also the same stuff I used to make the nest on my spring wreath........gettin' a lot of use out of that $2.00 basket!)
I used some of the eggs that I had left from the wreath project and added them to the nest with some sweet little roses and a white dove. I added some moss, just to soften the look a bit.
Aren't the roses just the cutest! They are made of some sort of foam sheeting............very unusual! I'm still on the lookout for some of the handmade paper ones, but just haven't found any that I love, so I'm stickin' with these until I find the exact ones I have in my head. :)
Here's the finished product on my kitchen table, just waiting for the family to gather around for dinner. Guess I should go get cookin'! :) Hope you enjoyed my first Treasures & Trinkets Thursday and please particpate, it'll be fun!
I just posted this for Show & Tell Friday over at Cindy's My Romantic Home
Have a blessed day!
