{My First Cake-thingy}


My first little cake dome... I can't remember the actual name for it.  Sometimes I think I'm losing my memory, for real!  I went to my local thrift store today and put the pieces together.  People probably thought I was a weirdo putting this dome over 20 different plates and vases. 



I glued everything with E6000 glue.  I don't think I want to attempt the whole screw driver thing with china!  I glued on this green flower knob (that I already had), to the top. 


I picked this plate because I loved the chippy gold scalloped trim around the edge and the Victorian, vintagey (is that a word?) flowers.


I spray painted the little vase it sits on, I like it better white than clear.  Cute little thing.  Total Cost $2.75
