I won, I won!!!!

There are so many great give a ways in blogland right now. I recently entered one at my good buddy Lynette's blog. She was giving away a gorgeous "bird" cloche from Wisteria. I've been coveting, oh I mean wanting, a cloche for quite some time, but they seemed a bit pricey. And unlike all the thrift shopping queens out there, I've never seen one that I really liked at my local goodwill. So when I saw that Lynette was giving one away for her pay it forward giveaway, my mouse couldn't move fast enough! And miracle of miracles, I WON!!!!

I had to retape the box for the first picture. I was getting my camera and came back into the living room and DH had opened the box for me. Silly man, didn't realize that I had to take a picture of the box BEFORE it was opened lol.

Sweet message from Lynette. We first met on the RMS sight, I fell in love with one of her bedroom postings. And she was one of my first followers and made me feel SO welcome here.

Isn't this the most gorgeous cloche you've ever seen?

Temporary home. I plan on using this beautiful cloche in our guest room when it's done. Right now there is too much moving and painting going on to risk keeping it there. So I've placed it in my living room bookcase so I can admire it. And think about how I'm going to decorate it! Suggestions are more than welcome, I tend to be impaired in the crafty/creative area! I think I may use it in a Thanksgiving centerpiece until the guest room is done. It's too pretty to just sit there "naked"!
Thank you again Lynette for hosting this wonderful giveaway! If you haven't visited Lynette, make sure you do. Her blog is wonderful and she has recently opened an Etsey shop full of the most beautiful things! And stay tuned. This is my 100th post! I can't believe it. So I will be having a "pay it forward" and 100th post giveaway soon. We are leaving for the coast on Thursday and I plan on finding some goodies there to celebrate!

It does look so pretty just where you have it right now Kathy, but can't wait to see where it's new home is!

Happy Halloween and have a safe wonderful trip to the coast!

Congratulations on your cloche, Kathy!! It's beautiful and big!! You will have so much fun with it. You may be able to find a glass pillar candle holder plate large enough to put under it and then making something won't be as daunting. I am not sure if Marty still has a link for looking at the cloches from the fall party, but that may give you ideas until Christmas.

I am SO looking forward to your giveaway!! ;-)

Happy Halloween!
