Putting my Mamie Jane Hat on again!

My husband and I went Estate sale-ing last Saturday and he surprised me with this purchase.


Well, we all know it is the wood from a long gone clock.  It is very old though, and my husband said, you can do something with it!  The challenge was on!


Oh I looked at it and looked at it and said to myself..."What would Mamie Jane do?"  She is my guru for making something out of things I would probably throw away!


So, I came up with something.  And my hubby, he was impressed!


I purchased the cloche cover at another sale the week before.  It is all etched.


All the bunnies went into hibernation and the birds flew in!



I am joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday and Our Home Away from Home and WOW.and Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson.

Tomorrow I must show you my Grands and Easter day....what a riot!

That was a great idea! I love it being used as an architectural piece for your other items to rest on. That's nice of your hubby to think of you when he saw it.
