~My First Cloche~

Hi every one! I hope you had a wonderful day today, I got home from work a little while ago and thought I’d relax and blog hop then post. Here in Pa. we aren’t having very nice weather, it’s been raining it seems forever and tonight we are supposed to get 2 to 3 inches of snow, haven’t seen the sun for a while. I did notice today that my Hostas are coming up and was so happy to see them poking thur the ground, spring is on the way I guess:)
Here is a cloche that I found at GW for $2.99, actually I found out from another blog that it is really a cover for a clock but that’s okay I can use it as a cloche, they had a smaller one but I passed on it now I wish I had bought that one too!

The snow white bird with a crown I found at Michael’s and the faux plant at Gabe’s a while ago. I have them sitting on a white plate from GW and I’m pretty sure I only paid .25 for the plate, can’t beat the price!

Did you notice the vintage eggs in the first photo? I found those at GW too, I can’t remember how much I paid for them but I know it wasn’t alot. They are heavy though, I don’t know if they are silver or ceramic, I like to think that they are from the 40’s or 50’s… I know I’ve never seen anything like them before.

I keep the cloche and eggs in my newly painted hutch/china cupboard, I’m keeping Easter decorating simple this year and see if I like it or not. Just trying not to be cluttery, don’t know if that’s a word or not but it fits! LOL!
I’ve seen the bigger cloches at Marshall’s and never buy one then when I go back again they are gone, so next time I see one there I’m going to buy one…I do think they are neat♥

Rondell,
If this is your FIRST cloche, I'll be returning to see what other creative ideas you have! Gorgeous! I adore all the white and your cabinet in the background has definitely intriqued me! Keep the inspirating coming this way!
Fondly,
Pat

It looks lovely. I am just got my first one too and have found out that cloches can look very different.

Congratulations on such a find! You have dressed your cloche beautifully as all of your cabinet. Love the bird too, it looks really familiar ;) Those eggs are just adorable.

Hi Rondell! I've got one of those clock domes that I use as a cloche, too. I love the little bird with crown that you put under yours. I found two of my cloches at Goodwill, so it's always worth a visit if you have one nearby.

Beautiful! I just got the same little bird at Michael's on clearance. It was too good of a deal to pass up. And I LOVE your cloche! What a steal!
