It’s time, once again, to show off our cloches at the Summer Cloche Party being held over at Marty’s. Some of you may recall seeing this tray vignette on the great room cocktail table a few weeks ago. I used a glass tray and topped it with both a cupcake cloche and a dome. I turned the dome upside down, jammed a whole slew of corks into it, then turned it right side up. The cupcake cloche was simply filled with seashells.
This was the original tray vignette, with that lush variegated plant. Alas, I forgot to water it over the weekend and it baked in the hot summer sun! So, out came the set of binoculars to take its place.
I bought a bag full of corks at a recent yard sale, knowing that they’d come in handy for something!
The binoculars were a purchase from the Horton’s Flea Market Sale in Tipton, IN last week. I found them in Nicki’s booth and she generously discounted them, just for me! Thanks so much, Nicki!
The cabinet in the foyer was refreshed with this cloche featuring good ol’ Father Time objects. The clock was a find at a church rummage sale for a mere dollar purchase. The other items inside the cloche include two pieces of jewelry and a magnet.
I found this wire bracelet in one of my favorite shops a few years ago. It’s fashioned with buttons and an old clock face.
This clock face magnet has a porcelain-look face that gives it a nice, vintage feel.
My friend, Kathy, made this pendant out of one of the many old clock and watch parts that she found while out junking. She is such a great re-purposer and talented artist.
This cloche is on the sofa table in the great room. I thought I needed a little touch of bling, so I brought out some shiny and some tarnished pieces of silver.
I stacked six butter pats and topped them with an errant Christmas ornament that I found in a drawer. Apparently, it got missed when I put away the holiday decorations!
I had some dried hydrangeas left over from last year’s crop. That sounds funny- I know vegetables can be classified as a crop, but can flowers be a crop, as well? Anyway, I cut the stem down and set the bloom into a very tarnished creamer.
This set of salt and pepper shakers was moved from its home in the dining room and added to the display.
As added bling, I wrapped my circle pendant around the cloche lid. The circle is made up of diamond chips and when the light from the nearby lamp hits it, it really sparkles.
