I love the look of a cloche in a vignette. You too?
But, cloches can be expensive. What do you do if you love the look but don’t have one in your stash?
Choose any tapered cylindrical container…
invert it over your object and voila!
you have a cloche!
Isn’t that easy?
How many glass containers can your repurpose for a cloche?
This vignette on my sideboard may look a wee bit familiar to you.
That’s because I recently shared about it here.
Marty from a Stroll Through Life also enjoys cloches in her decorating. So much so, that she decided to turn her regular tablescape party into a cloche party. Since I did not have a cloche I thought I would pass on the event. As I stopped by today to check out the party, it hit me. Why not use my huge Longaberger cut glass hurricane? Why not. But….if I was going to do something…I needed to do it now! Good natural light would be disappearing quickly at my house.
I looked around my great room. The sideboard vignette was calling me to come and play. A vintage pressed glass cake pedestal from my china cabinet was the perfect size for the giant pine cone over which I inverted the hurricane. A few minutes of rearranging things and I had my new cloche-accented vignette. Are you loving it? I am.
Have you ever noticed that the best things in decorating come together quickly? This took all of fifteen minutes tops. (Can you see me smiling?)
Today, we hit 60 degrees! I don’t know how long this warm weather will stay. Regardless…Spring is on her way. The birds were singing this morning for the first time in what seems like forever. This wintry woodland vignette will be short-lived.
Spring….here I come!!
Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”
It’s a cloched case!
