I love to shop in thrift stores. I make a mental list of the things I hope to find and set off, sure in my heart that they will be there waiting for me. I am seldom disappointed.
Shopping is my heroin,
Finding a good deal is my rush,
Value Village is my dealer.
My name is Rhianna and I am a thrift store junkie.
This week , having been inspired by some blog posts raving about the uses of Apothacary jars and cloches as decorating tools, I set off in search of something similar.
Apothacary jars often have a pedestal base and a filial top to distinguish them from ordinary jars, so I was going to keep my eye out for those components.
Cloches ( which is the French word for bells) were glass domes used in gardens as mini greenhouses to start tender plants.
In modern day, they are more likely to be found covering little vignettes of life on peoples mantles.

I was going to use these as bases and filials for jars to create my own apothacary jars.
