A Little Treat For Me ..

Hello my dear friends,

I am pretty sure not too long ago I said I wouldn't buy anything new to create with until I have used some of my old supplies up and well, it didn't work! ... But you will understand why when you see what I bought!

Namely this ...

... a cloche and stand.

I just couldn't resist when I saw it and to give you a better idea of why I am so pleased with my purchase take a look at this picture below first.
I am sure you are asking yourself what has an apple and a penny to do with a cloche?!
Well, they are both there as reference to size.
The penny is going to give you an idea of how big the apple is and the apple will give you an idea of how big or rather ...
... how small the cloche is! Isn't this just the neatest ever?!

I am already working on an idea of what to do with it but it's in the early stages right now. 

My thoughts are going with creating a little nest and embellishing it with some of my book page leaves and maybe have little pearl eggs live in it but like I said  am just starting to think of what I can do with it.
And if you would like to see what I come up with and actually create ... just come and visit me again some time here at Todolwen.
And until then ...
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
Karen B.
