A Genuine Bell Jar

I love cloches.  I mean, what's not to love.  I suddenly have quite a collection but my latest one is a real beauty with loads of potential.  I saw it last week at one of my "lunch hour haunts".....priced $22.00.  I had already spotted the wire cloche, the one that I almost "bulldozed" very gracefully stepped around a woman to grab, so I decided I didn't really need to spend any more money.
Here it is....such a cutie!
 
Well, can you believe that all week-end I thought about the other cloche.... alot!  I kept saying to myself, "Self, why did you have to be such a tightwad, after all, it's NOT that much money". I was beating myself up for not getting it while I was there.

Now we all know there's an unwritten rule in blogland.  You know the one.  If you go back to the shop a second time and it's still there, you are MEANT, even DESTINED to have it!!  It's true.  I was taught this by some of the best bloggers around!!

Wouldn't you know, the shop is closed on Mondays so I had a whole extra day to fret!  Needless to say, today I took my lunch hour a little early and sped drove very carefully back to the shop.  First booth on the right....there it was!  Divine destiny!  I was meant to have it!

So, tonight that little baby is sitting on my dining room table in all its shining glory!  I admit, the items under it will probably change a time or two (ahem).   But at this moment ........


 I'm going to have lots of fun with this little beauty!



 Check back soon!  You know it's going to change frequently!

That was yesterday.........
Whoops!  Already changing!  :)

 I'll be linking to some great parties.

Snippets of Christmas
