My Pretty Cloche

A couple of years ago I found these 2 beautiful glass cloches at a yard sale for 75 cents each. I knew it was a very good deal and I wasn't going to pass them up. I like to use them in different ways and change them out with the seasons. This is what I have on my dining room table right now. Lots of white with roses, vintage crystals and tulle.
I found the candle holder at Deseret Industries, the vintage chandelier crystals at a yard sale, the roses at my local craft store and the mini Eiffel Tower at Michaels. It looks perfect on my white dining room table.
Did you know that I LOVE Cinderella? I have a large collection of Cinderella goodies. These two clocks have there own pretty cloches protecting them.
The tiara on this one was from when I was the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi in college.
And this tiara is from when I was the Apple Blossom Queen in High School. I love my tiaras and won't ever pass up a chance to wear them!
If I make a pretty dessert, I love to show it off under a cloche. These pink rose cupcakes look perfect on this silver jeweled charger and a cloche to top it off!
And of course, I always use a cloche in my Christmas decorating. These vintage bottle brush trees that I bleached and decorated are just magical under a cloche decorated with a sparkly ribbon!

I am so glad that I bought those 2 cloches at that yard sale. I have definitely got my moneys worth out of them!

Oh Trish,
Your cloches are wonderful. I have always wanted to get one because there are many things you can put under them. I love Cinderella too, and is a favorite of mine. The little white trees are pretty, and it would be so magical with a bit of snow. And I love the crowns - I have a thing for crowns, and these hold such memories for you. Now I want to find myself a cloche and decorate it.

75 cents? You did a get deal! Looks lovely...and I love how you used the candleholder as a display...never thought of that before!

Custom Comforts said...

What a deal - cloches for 75 cents. I would have snatched them up too. Looks like you've already found many wonderful ways to put them to use with many more to come with fall and Christmas around the corner.
