Re-purposed Treasures

Diane over at A Picture is Worth a 1,000 words is having "second time around Tuesday".

I have been wanting a cloche (did I say/spell that right??) and never could find one the right price. Sooo I decided to kinda make my own... if that makes sense.
A couple Saturdays ago when I went to my daughters speech tournament I found a wonderful little antique store and purchased this green vase for $10.00. I know that it can't be antique but the price was right. So I filled it with lemons, apples, and small wicker spheres from the goodwill and waaa laa.
I finished it off with and old broache I had and some leapord ribbon.
Love the texture of the vase and have had a couple people ask me if the fruit is in water.

Go visit Diane over @ http://diane1876.blogspot.com/ to see all kinds of goodies.

Blessings, Roxanne

So cool! What a creative idea. I thought the fruit was in water too! I've been wanting a cloche too, I'll have to turn all my vases upside down to see which one might work!
Thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a follower!

Looks AWESOME! I actually had to google the word cloche because I had no idea what it was. But now that I know, I realize I have seen them everywhere (just didn't know what they were called. I like the green of the vase. Nice job!

Very clever repurposing! And I love the color of the vase/cloche and the texture of the glass.

Happy 2nd Time Around Tuesday...

Hi Roxanne,
I love what you did with the vase! You have a real talent for seeing new purposes for ordinary things.

Thanks for linking to 2nd Time Around!
