Cloche Collections

Tweaking collections by using a cloche to display favorites is always fun. I found this small cloche while thrifting on Friday. I've tried out several small collectibles in various backgrounds.
Depression glass pepper shaker, old pump pencil sharpener and a waxed leaf, an a vintage alarm clock in front of the Salter Cast Iron Scale.
When working on my booth on Sunday I found only three glass cloche in the store. The owl under glass is mine and the classic sealed and the cake dome belong to other dealers. I added the items to the cake dome (and then put everything back where it belonged).
The picture below is my favorite cloche this week - a pint sealer with zinc and glass top, reversed. My favorite of these is the hydrangea. I want to dry a hydrangea just for this sealer for a semi-perminent display.
So I went outside, clipped a few more hydrangea blossoms and made another cloche, this time a keeper.
Always fun making something fresh.

  8. They are all so lovely and your ideas for them are great, but I do have a weakness for Hydrangeas, especially when they beginning to dry out and turn wonderful autumnal colours. Lovely photos and ideas.

  9. They are all so sweet, but I like your hydrangea one the best! I love these ideas -- I have some vintage canning jars that can hold something fun in the kitchen! I'll have to be on the lookout for a cloche....

  11. The upsidedown jar idea is great! I should have thought of that as I have the same type of thing (upsidedown jar with a flower inside) that my great-grandmother made in the 40s or 50s!

  13. I think I'll try using an aqua tinted canning jar with some of my hydrangeas. Wonder how that will look? Does anyone know how to separate a cloche from its
    permanent base without breaking it? There are lots of cloches with ugly fake flowers in consignment shops and thrift stores but I don't know if there's a way to separate the top from the bottom... Kathy
