When I was a little girl, I would pick weeds, (I thought they were flowers), all clinched in my fist, I would give them to my mother, in a vase the little weeds would live, until.. It made me feel good inside. As an adult, I still pick weeds, by picking ugly or castoff item's and creating something nice and useful. It still makes me feel good inside.
I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL
O.K. I know these chicken wire cloche's, have been done before, but, you know how I'am such a copycat! It really is not as easy, as it looks..Its supposed to be easy, but, after the gloves kept getting in my way, I took them off and got all scratched up.....but, I got them made. I just connected the whole length of wire, twisted at where I wanted to divide and make 2, cut them apart with wire snips, and glued the finials to cover the very ruff top, a little ribbon and burlap, and several boo boo's, WALAH!!! Done.
After looking all over for a old house turbine, I find out that my dad had 3 at his house. Yippie!!! He surprized me, and sent them via my Brother in law, after a recent hunting trip. I scrubbed one all up, took off the bottom thingie, and sat it on top of the fridge......I Like IT!! I also have an old dismanted outside light cage and an trouble light cage just waiting to cloche something!
