My "new" red cake plate!

Today I went to the Goodwill here in town, and I love it there! It is so neat and clean! And it smells good! Everything is organized by color:)
But my favorite find today was this.....
it was only $2.00!

When I saw it, I just had this idea, why don't I paint it red! Now I have a red cake plate to match all the other red cake plates in blogland!

I used the red paint that I already had!
I only painted the outside so that I can still use it for food:)

This is a cloche that I got 50% off at Hobby Lobby! I just love that store! And I have a new love for garden cloche's.
Also while I was at the Goodwill, I scored a few really nice men's shirts!

One of which has already ended up into a .......

skirt! for me:)
It's so cute! I can't wait to make more! I wish I had better photos, but I can't take them of myself and Mr F just doesn't get into it!
I'm linking this post to the Weekend Wrap Up Party at Tatertots and Jello!

And to Frugal Friday at The Shabby Nest!

And to Sundae Scoop at I heart naptime!

How cool is this? Jamielyn saw my post on Tatertots and asked me to link this up to her site! *grin*
And to the Sunday Showcast party at  Under The Table and Dreaming!

Love the idea of just painting the bottom of the plate so you can still serve food on it. Cute and clever!
