"The Cheese Dome" A popular way to serve a hunk of cheese to your guests. I think these were popular in the 80's? Were they ever popular? Are they still popular? Either way there are a ton of these around at garage sales and thrift stores. I've been seeing multiple examples of do it yourself cake plates and apothecary jars in blogland and I didn't want to feel left out. So I paid $1.00 for my Cheese Dome. Here's a before pic of (do you see her in the lower right corner?)Then, two weeks later, the garaging Gods were smiling upon me and I found this great pedestal candle holder (She's on top of the desk, with a silver box resting on her) for .50.
With a little Rustoleum's Semi Gloss black and some E6000 glue, I now have this...I think she's so cute. I've replace the traditional cheese with some candles (from a garage sale) and some of my favorite rose hip potpourri. I ordered the tag from a lady on ebay, years ago. They're cinnamon scented.
Let me know what you think. Love, Kelly
