Winter Cloche Party !


What can be better than a party for a Cloche ? One of my most favorite things ! After Valentines Day I took anything to do with winter & put it away ... I am hoping it will make spring arrive a little early, do you think it will work ?
Just a few of my cloche's I have around my home ... my family knows that I am addicted to anything under glass and on a pedestal !

A sweet little wire chair under glass , with the most adorable vintage handcrafted chair out of beads attached to the side !
Sitting on a table is a cloche ( re-purposed cheese dome one) a little angel figurine that was my mom's sitting in a bed of moss.
A vintage porcelain shoe , I have had this for many years , this also was my mothers. It is another re-purposed cheese holder that I painted and added a mosaic to the bottom.
Sitting on a shelf in my kitchen is another re-purposed cloche from various parts ! I added some vintage buttons and some silver vintage doll spoons to make the nest for the little birds ! The full view is the top photo!
On my kitchen table is a spring theme cloche !
On a shelf in my bathroom , small but filled with some vintage jewelry !
Another spring cloche that is on top of a vintage cupboard !
I hope you enjoyed the "tour" This is linked to A Stroll Thru Life blog winter cloche party ! Check out all of the wonderful cloche's ! Amazing !

Oh they are all so beautifully decorated. How wonderful to have such lovely heirlooms from your mom. I really like the combination of the buttons and the spoons, too cute. The cloche that you made in the first photo is just stunning. I am drooling all over the place. Oh, and the little wire and bead chairs. So pretty. Thank you so much for joining the party. This is so much fun. Hugs, Marty

They are all just precious, oh those love birds and the little angel in the moss! I'm with you, about banishing winter from the house. Thoughts of spring are much much better!
