My Find!

Hope everyone has had a fantastic week! I can't believe it's Friday already!

Recently I discovered a gorgeous little store called 'Fairies at Work' which is packed to the brim with wonderful little goodies. Imagine a really, really, really, compact version of the W.A.C. along with every fantastic garage sale you have every been to - mix it all together - and .... voila you have 'Fairies at Work'! The owner is a sweet lady who sells vintage linens, kitchenware, china, jewellery, furniture .... and the list goes on.

I had no idea which way to look in this store, and admit I have to go back when I have more time for a closer look! But I did find a wonderful Glass Dome - yay - and only $20!!! I have been looking for a second hand one of these for what seems like forever, and finally found it in this magical little store. I guess fairies really were at work!

Below is my wonderful little glass dome (or cloche) sitting next to some very old plumbers lasts that I found in an antique store many years ago. Okay my dome didn't come with a fancy silver stand like the one in the image above ... but I think it is beautiful anyway!

I know I'm not the only one who likes to display items under glass....

Very pretty ...

The modern look ....

This one brought a smile to my face ....

My purchase got me thinking ...... what's under your dome? Would love it if you shared.

Wishing everyone a great weekend. Michelle

  8. Hey Michelle, I have a matching pair of glass domes and the second one I picked up just last week for $14 (I had to check with the lady in the shop that the price was correct!)from a shop just down the street. I took it home in the bottom of the pram at my 3 year old son's feet survived the journey. I used them yesterday at a baby shower I hosted to display some hand knitted baby booties and everyone just loved the idea. It was a nice decorative touch on the table. Great post!
