Not so sure…

I am really not so sure what this round wooden board is really for? I found it for $3.00 at a salvage store recently and thought I might be able to do something fun with it.  IMG_2970
After having it sit on the counter for a couple days and not knowing what to do with it, I took it to TJ Maxx with me to see if I could find a cloche that might fit on the top. Lucky me, I found one for $4.99 and brought it home.

Again, another couple days went by while I tried to figure out what put in my new cloche. I thought of a bird nest that was sitting on the side of the house that had been abandoned.  Also thought of some extra plastic eggs that I have in my crafting supplies.

Well it looks like you now know what it is for. The base is just perfect for your cloche. It would also look great with fresh leaves and a wonderful herb goat cheese.

$4.99??? OMG, we pay about $30 for a cloche like this here in Canada. I want to go shopping in the states!!

I love how you put this together, Tracie. The board is so cool - could it have been a cheese board or is it more architectural in nature?
