Oh my! It was a close call tonight. I almost missed the cloche party! I have been so busy organizing all of my newly purchased furniture and accessories from a fantabulous yard sale, that I neglected to put together my cloches! I rushed to put together a few ~ Sorry that I didn’t use a lot of ingenuity this time, but I hope you’ll enjoy seeing them, anyway.
This black, wire cloche in one of the guest rooms was a thrifted find from a favorite shop in Tipp City. It was very simple, so I added a small crystal doorknob from my collection as a topper. I just used a little dab of E6000 glue to hold it in place.
I placed it over a blue and white luncheon plate that was a yard sale find. Although it isn’t blooming any longer, the African Violet adds a nice touch of greenery.
The knob fit absolutely perfect into the top of the cloche. It must have been meant to be.
The top of the cedar chest needed a little something to make it look homey, so I used another wire cloche and featured two blue love birds and their nest. The cloche sits on an old round mirror base and lends a nice reflection of everything inside. The nest is an old strainer filled with moss. I purchased the mirror and cloche from my friend, Kathy from Sylvia’s Vintage Daughter.
A simple cutwork doily sets the basis for this pedestal cloche on the dining room table. I set the cloche on a glass and wood tray and added a few accessories.
The candles are lit for a bit more ambience.
Simple, yet elegant…
I actually thought that the dinner bell, topped with a sweet little bird, looked like a cloche, too.
I have so many pretty yard sale purchases to show you. Look for them on Monday for Rhoda’s Thrifty Treasures party.
Make sure you stop over to Marty’s party where I guarantee you will find oodles of beautiful and inspirational cloches. Her party-goers go “all out” for this meme.
