BNOTP Inspired !

Well don't you just love it when you see something and darn, you know you will  never  find one. 

This was in the  back  of my thoughts as I was walking through  HomeGoods  the other day and saw this.  
Busted,  I was there again.
Guess what I saw ?


  

A  picnic cloche !

I should probably call in  a  dome.  Cloche is such a big word for something under 5 dollars.
I bought 4 of them. 
A little  plane
 So here is Miss Susans...
From her blog Between Naps On the Porch
Isn't so cute... adorable..  cookies  too !!



Shere is what I did.. 
Looked at Susan's again, got hungey and ate an  oreo !
Got  on  Ebay and found these. 



A ren't they cute!



The bee....




And  the  dragonfly of coarse ...




Then I had to  wait  because they were coming from China !

China !  What was I going to do while I waited.


I did go to the hardware store and get my wire, that  took  an hour.




So  finally all the parts were in  and  I got started.
The bugs needed to be bent a tiny bit to fit the curve and I broke the first one's wing!
So I had to slow down and be cautious.




See, the first one is on !   




A  bunch more to do !!!!!

 


First one done.
It really was  fun  to make and it came out okay.
Now I need to make three more of these.





If you look careful enough you maybe can see a wire or two.





But they are hidden well enough.
What do you think?

Here is a view from the top.







We eat out in the back yard often.  I think these will work out fine for around the pool.

I'll get them done and  surprise  you with a tablescape sometime !!

Have a happy day, I hope you enjoyed your visit here. I  love comments.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this! What a great idea. Seeing this took me back to when we used to have big family picnics with checkered tablecloths, big pitchers of lemonade, and a table full of these screened food toppers keeping the flies away.

  11. I don't know if you'll see this, but I had to tell you how much I love these. My husband hates bugs around his food (the real ones, not the nifty crafted ones) He would be so jazzed by this.

  15. Love these!!! What a great idea, makes me want to eat outside on the Loggia tonight! FYI: Found matching table weights at "The Alley" two weeks ago, this would be perfect for a BBQ :)

  17. You are brilliant! I've been searching for some domes for our 4th of July party. I'm headed to HomeGoods today. Fingers crossed. I'll even take them plain. ;-)

  18. This is so darling! I wish we ate outside more often so that I could justify making some of them, too. I love the way they turned-out! Thanks for sharing!
