My Very Own Cloche

I have been seeing cloches all over Pottery Barn and blogworld and have been loving them.  I bought this candlestick and cheese dome at Goodwill for $3 for both!!  I was so excited to see what I could make of it. 

I painted it Heirloom White (Rustoleum) and then sanded it in a few select places.  I had some greenery left over from something else, so I rolled it and made it into a simple bird's nest.  The pigeon next to it was $.99 at Goodwill as well.  Score!!

Here it is in my cabinet that my parents gave me when I was younger.  I have a hard time filling this thing because it is HUGE!
