What's in "YOUR" cloche?

Hi Girls, I decided to join Marty at a stroll thru life for her cloche party. Be sure and go look at all the participant's wonderful ideas for uses for our cloches and apothacary jars. They are so much fun to decorate with, aren't they? Most of mine have been thrifted, which makes them even better! he he My little chair of babies and bears.

This cloche is about 1 inch high! Its a bubble holder out of one of those trinket machines from long ago--a perfect cloche for my tiny bird's nest.

Sea shells in this jar. I got it at GW for $8.00!! Yea! I use it for all the seasons with eggs, Christmas bulbs, tall plants, etc.

Another "tiny"piece. It a silver tinsel 4th of July tree in a watch dome.

Miniature wedding cake under a small goblet.

Look for these at garage sales and thrift stores. They were candle holders for metal candle pieces serveral years back. This one is turned upside down. I glued an old glass doorknob on top.

Pretty with one of those fancy water bottles under it.

or a cobalt blue "Vicks" bottle with little zinnas.

This is one of those "floating candle" jars. I found the lid one day at the thrift store. I always buy interesting lids because you will always find a jar for it someday.

Mother-of-pearl buttons

Pretty postcard.

I promised to show the platters I got yesterday at a garage sale for $2.00 each. They are very crazed and stained, but that makes me like them even more!! They are the colors I plan to use when our basement is finished.

Hope you enjoyed peeking under my cloches, ha. Have a wonderful Friday,

  3. Linda, I am totally in awe. YOu have some of the cutest things. I love the little chair with all the cute little babies and bears. So precious. You definitely have a way with decorating and you've put such interesting and eye catching things under your cloches and in your jars. The dome that you glued the doorknob onto is fantastic. Now why couldn't I have thought of that? Love it all. Thank you so much for joining the party. This is just the best. Hugs, Marty
