It seems I have a thing for bringing home lost compotes these days. I swear I wasn't on the lookout for one. It seems they are on the lookout for me!
I spied this glass beauty and had to have it. I do have to admit to a tiny bit of buyers remose however. Once I had it home, I didn't have a clue how I'd use it. Ever have that happen?
After staring at it for a couple of days, giving it the evil eye every time I happened to pass by . . . inspiration struck. Okay, maybe not inspiration so much as a "this is ridiculous, I've got to do something with it" moment, I decided to stick a candle in it.
Encouraged that it fit and looked halfway respectable, off I went to dig around for something to spruce it up with. I came up with a scrap of leftover drop cloth fabric which I cut to size. . . some white ribbon . . . and a charm from my daughters charm bracelet (shhh, don't tell her she hasn't noticed yet)
I layered the compote on top of a small oval dish.
And placed two keys I picked up at a recent flea market on the dish for added intrest.
I love this key, I wonder what it opened way back when it as brand new? I'm thinking maybe a trunk or luggage of some type.
Overall, I think this mini project turn out pretty fabulous considering I couldn't figure out where to start.
Enjoy your day,
