"Treasure Finds" & My New Little Cloche....

Hello my friends...and Happy Saturday! I just wanted to apologize for not posting all week...I've been so busy playing in my little Frenchy toile studio...the room is coming right along, by the way! I hope to post some about it this coming week!

Anyway, I just wanted to share one of my little "treasure finds" from my Valentines Day shopping trip. I found this little beauty at the antique shop and it was on sale...I only gave $3 for it (the pedestal plate & cloche)!!! Yeeeehawwww!!! I just couldn't resist...it's just too cute!!! The entire piece only measures 10 in. in height, including the pedestal plate. I placed it on my pretty Valentine tea towel that Melissa, from Melissa's Heart and Home, gave me! Isn't it sweet?

Just another photo with a different view. Hmmm...wonder what I can put under this pretty little cloche?

Love ya'll,
Chari

Well you need a mini frenchy girl bust for that litle cutie! *winks* Ok I went searching for ideas and I saw this...Now ignore the Halloween theme but how about cutouts of your grandbabies, maybe done in a similar style to this? http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_kryk-jb4o5o/SOGE40vc_3I/AAAAAAAABKk/Kx25DPTpfNU/s400/CSC_0980c.JPG I thought it was adorable! And then maybe a key to their little hearts *winks* I can't wait to see that new office of yours girlfriend! And I left a little blog award for ya over at my place...stop by if you get a chance. Love ya! Vanna

Oh Chari, that is the cutest little cloche that I have ever seen! I can't believe you got it for only $3. I like how you placed Melissa's towel under it, looks really nice..Christine

Love your new cloche. Don't ask me what to put under it. I'm having a mental block this week. I can't seem to get motivated to do anything & I sure as heck don't feel creative. Sorry I wasn't much help.

Wow Chari! Is that not the cutest thing! And you got such a deal! I was out antiquing and saw some darling little bird's nests complete with little blue eggs. I am envisioning that in your little cloche!! I finally found a cake stand that was cute and affordable. Now I'm in the market for a cloche, too. Yours is just perfect!! What a deal! Have a wonderful weekend...hugs...Debbie

Chari- What a sweet little cloche you found! Gloria's idea sounds just perfect with the heart and key!
It seems like everyone is just busy busy busy!! I worked 3 straight days at the Antique Avenue and will work tomorrow too. Hopefully Sally and I will be getting together Thursday is all goes well with her Dr. Appt. We will miss your girlfriend but we will just have to keep working at it till we can find a way to get together!

Well I need to go over and tell Gloria to take care of herself as it sounds she is under the weather.. and Lynnes DH- my so much going on--
