A few tiny projects ~

A sweet nest for you ~

While treasure hunting a few days back, I found this glass dome ~
just look at how this cast-off has been transformed into a beauty!!!
My goodies and gifts are inside now
(thank you so much for my nest Karin!)
but I will find something pretty to place underneath
before adding it to our antique space ~
I love the creamy bowl that I already had to become it's base.

I made a sweet candle holder/flower vase to sell too!!!

I've seen a few of these in globes from light fixtures
transformed into bird feeders!!!!
Now it just needs a tree....and a little bit of seed ~

A wonderful decanter that I discovered just waiting for a gorgeous label ~

I found this great punch at Michael's ~ and it was on sale 40% off!!!
It will be perfect to create tags for the antique space...

Thank you all so much for your kind words for my DH.
He's doing so much better!!! You all are so encouraging to me.
You truly are such a blessing in my life, thank you so very much ~

I hope you have a great Thursday dear friends,
love and hugs,

Dearest Dawn,

Lovin' everything...seems I say that all the time to you...BUT it's true!

Hope you don't mind but I just have to make some bird feeders like yours! So beautiful!

Hi ~ your antique space is going to look so great with all these nifty items you made! I adore the goodies you have under the glass dome-looks fabulous! Oh, and I would have to keep the glass dome if I had found it - I love those and cloches and I don't have nearly enough yet.LOL

So very thankful your husband is doing well...

Dawn, i love the vignette you created for under the cloche, that is so sweet!!!

Joy Lett said...

I love the way you repurpose items. That's what I try to do- which means I end up with a pile of stuff that needs to be repurposed. Finding time is the real secret. Thanks---

Hi Dawn... The cloche is so springy and has a sweetness I love... I am so yearning for the out of doors again.

Jamie said...

So cute! I found a darling little cloche (is that the right word?) with base and everything yesterday, now I need to do something cute like that with it.
Your candle holder looks JUST LIKE the ones I purchased at anthropologie last summer...I will likely be posting pics of them soon, I am about to put them out on our patio.

I have been looking for a punch like the one you found. I will head to Michael's today and hope my store has one! Awesome! Love the dome and the nest...very sweet.

chicroses said...

Love all your projects as always. I have that stamp and it works well..I have used it for pricing my things at my antique space. Im cant wait to see your tags. I have gone to plan shipping tags of different sizes..stain them then sprinkle instant coffee...I also tried watered acrylic paints on some. They turned out good..I mean the tan shipping tags. I tried to get the color robin egg blue..cant remember what color I your stuff...sally

Oh, Dawn!! The cloche is gorgeous. How ever did you come up with the idea of fitting the nest with the paper? So pretty and whimsical. I didn't see the tag punch at Michael's last night....might have to go back! Wait. I want to create today!! Too bad we can't be two places at once!!
Have a great day-
