Antique bubble gum machine makeover!

My sister gave me this antique bubble gum machine. I thought is was so sweet but really wasnt sure what I would do with it. It really needed a good cleaning and I was surprised how much of it came apart. I washed it really well and then put it back together. The next picture shows what I put inside. I decided it would look pretty with some of my lace collection inside of it. I can't put gum in it because the rod that holds it all together was really rusted. It was missing the finial on top so I improvised and glued a glass knob on top, added a little jewlery bling,and now it is my favorite piece. I really need to learn to take better pictures not to mention get a better camera because this post really does not give it justice.
