I finished some projects this week and thought I'd post them so you can see them, I hope you enjoy seeing them. I love to share and hope you love to look. I know I love to see the things other people make I am always amazed and inspired. The first project I worked on was a candle holder I found at a sale. It had a stained finish so I thought I would paint it and use a design I found on The Graphic Fairy to give it a new look.
I found this cloche-her is some infor on the word "cloche" I never know how to say it! The definition really doesn't cover the idea of cloche like mine but it is what they call them.
[KLOHSH] French for a bell-shaped woman's hat, cloche refers culinarily to an unglazed stoneware, bell-shaped cover used in baking bread. This baking cloche is soaked in water, then placed over the bread dough prior to baking. When heated, the water-soaked clay produces steam, which coats the dough and gives the finished bread a crackling good crust. Cloches, which are about 10 inches tall, are available in gourmet shops. An unglazed earthenware casserole dish can be substituted.

I found a nice chunky spindle piece and base and glued them all together with my favorite Gorilla Glue. Then I did the shabby thing-black undercoat, white, and then a dark glaze. I think it will be great with a vignette setting inside.
