Just What I Needed

I DO NOT/DID NOT need another cloche, as I just don't have the room, especially for a "big" one. Why am I telling you this, you ask? Wellllll.......I REPEAT .........I really DO NOT/DID NOT need another cloche/bell jar !!

Guess what? Look what is sitting on my dining table. I have a good excuse - I really do! It is the same size as the large one I already have - 12 1/2 ins. tall. The decor on the inside has some damage, but don't think it is anything that I can't fix.

Click picture to enlarge.
I just need to figure out the best way to pry the bottom off with out it breaking, as it appears to be styrofoam and is glued on.
Love the butterflies!
Just how much was this thrifty bargain you ask ? Including tax $23.61 (told you I had a good excuse). :-D

Oh but you really did need it. Don't forget that the Fall Cloche Party is on Sept. 17th. Great size and the price is unreal. Love it. Hugs, Marty

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

What a steal, Glenda! Seriously, can one have too many cloches? I'll bet you grabbed her right up, and hugged her close to you, all the way to the register. lol.

Have a great labor day weekend,

You got a great deal! I've never gotten one that had "stuff" in it already!

Betsy said...

Yes, you do need another cloche. One can never, ever have too many:)
I only have one, but am on the hunt for more. I need one to put on top of a repurposed lamp base. Love them. Yours looks so nice sitting on the mirror on your table.

Linda Q said...

Oh wow for that price you HAD to have another one! That is great, I have a large one like that too but paid more. Enjoy, a girl can never have to many cloches, chandeliers or chocolate!

A Beatuiful cloche! Of course you needed i. If noting else, you couldn't just let it sit at the store all lonely and ignored. It was only proper for you to give it a good home!

I'm dreaming of a cloche, too.. Yours is beautiful- and what a bargain!
Hugs,
Monicax.

susan said...

Oh my goodness!! I can see why you couldn't pass that up! I love what is inside and know you can fix it. Don't break it!! You beat me to this one :)

Mikey said...

No such thing as too many cloches! I've been turning them down left an right lately--seeing them at fantastic prices....I've bought two more recently.....I have over 30 now! I have a few smaller ones, but most are HUGE! I LOVE THEM!

Liz said...

Very Pretty! How could you pass that up? Of course you needed it! :)
