Barbelles of the Ball

Walking home from work I picked up a set of barbells a neighbour had sent to the curb. As I passed the fellow who lives next door to her I got a nod of approval. I gave him my broadest smile, even as I suspected we had very different visions of the future for those weights.

Barbell as Serving Surface

I popped one of the weights onto the top of an upcycled wood lamp base and my smallest cloche on top - perfect fit.

Barbell weights come in two - and my fishbowl cloche fit just as perfectly on the 2nd weight.

I'm thinking décor for a brunch with workout buddies or the family weightlifter.

    • Thank you! The one with the cookie cutter – it’s a fish bowl I got from a neighbour’s recycling bin on garbage day. There are about 6 – 10 people who go up and down the streets on garbage day taking refundable bottles and cans. I leave that stuff and take things like fish bowls.
