Yipppeeeee! $2.00 find

I have mentioned this before how I was a wee bit (ok big, big, big) jealous of you gals and your tag sales that you get these amazing things at....

I let out a hearty "Yippeeee" in the thrift store when I found this little puppy! I brought it home and hubby wanted to know if it was some type of exercise equipment! Oh my, yeah I'll use it for my thighs!
Anyhoo, I grabbed my black spray paint, and went to town!
I glued some little cups onto it, added little orange candles...

Then it needed more, so I dug around my china hutches and found a glass dome that I turned upside down and it fit perfectly!

I filled it with fall gourds and white pumpkins. It's better but it's not there yet. I even thought of putting a bird's nest in the middle with eggs, Or a small black bowl filled with goodies...

We will just have to see!

Blessings,

Debbie
