Cloche Love



I linking up with
today for Vintage Inspiration Friday!
I love cloches!
I like the fact you don't have to dust what's inside!
And I love to see just how much stuff I can get inside the glass dome!
I start out with a foundation of pier mirrors.
A book for the background.


Statue of a naked godess!


Added something from nature.
Bugs, nests, eggs.......what ever I can find!


Some alabaster and coral.


A clock face is a must!


Tallow berries and a feather.


Last but not least the cloche.
Hope you can't see any dust! lol!

 

Here's wishing each and every one of my blog friends
A Happy New Year!
I'm looking forward to 2011 being a stellar year!
Bring it on!

So very pretty. I've never seen any clouches for sale at any stores around here. I know they're all the rave, but not so easy to find.

Love the way you think ~ the less dusting to do the better! Plus it looks fabulous!

Happy New Year!!

Carole said...

I wanted to ask if you'd gotten a new camera but didn't want it to come off rude. Your photos are just so captivating. You have a good eye for it. It's not always the camera but the person taking the pictures.
I'm a nikon girl too. Thinking of getting a new one....hum? which one!
Happy New Year!
