Lately I've seen so many roman numeral clock pieces around blog land and in catalogs, but of course now that I'm writing about them, I can't find any to link to!
A few months ago I found this big glass dome at Goodwill for $5. It was quite a find, especially since it was in perfect condition so I took it home with me. Unfortunately it has been sitting in my spare room since then....
I've tried a few different plates and bases, but nothing looked quite right. Yesterday, my mom and I were out running a few errands and stopped in a thrift store near her house. Waiting for me was this guy:
It used to be a clock, but the hands were missing. It had lots of potential and when I got it home, it fit just perfect with my lonely glass dome.
Since I didn't want the metal piece poking up in the middle, I had to pry off the clock mechanism that was still attached to the back.
Once that was done, I cleaned her up, added a little votive bird holder (also found yesterday for $0.99), a little white vase (Goodwill $0.49), and a hydrangea from the backyard and she was just perfect!
For now, it has a home on my kitchen table, but I think it will eventually end up on this antique dresser (which I worked on today) and will post final pictures soon!!
I'm linking up to Thrifty and Fabuless' party!
