Summer Cloche

I am probably the last person in blog land that doesn't have a real cloche.  I didn't want to miss Marty's party at a Stroll Thru Life so I improvised with my cake cover. 

For the first vignette I used two of my vintage ice cream cartons, my pretty china creamer and some cherries.  I think this looks so summery.

 Here it is without the dome.
 Then I tried a little vignette with an old prop camera and a porcelain flower.  I kind of like doing things under glass.
 It puts things in a whole new perspective.

That looks great, Maggie! Don't things looks so pretty and more important under glass? I love that paper you have down on the base, too.

Beautiful vignettes, Maggie! Love the cherries! It's amazing how different things look under glass. :-)

Oh, both are so pretty! I especially love the cherries one; the items coordinate so perfectly with each other.: ) xoxo

I just love your creativity with the cloche and vintage finds. I am looking forward to checking out more of your blog. I am a new follower!

Claudia Tyler said...

Don't worry Maggie... I am "cloche-less" also. I remember taking one to the Goodwill once saying, "why would I ever really need this thing"? That's the story of my life.

Your displays are lovely. Good job!

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Oh, they are pretty! And I don't have a "real" cloche, but I do have a bunch of clock and cheese domes.

Your cakesaver is perfect. Love the cherries and the egg saver, how fun is that. I think the camera is just about the cutest. Love it. What a fun idea for a cloche. Thanks so much for joining the party, I really enjoy your vignettes. Hugs, Marty

Bliss said...

Hey that's cute, and I think it's every bit as much a cloche as my cheese server cloche. A glass dome is a glass dome!


blhitchcock901 said...

Oooo. Sweet idea! I only own a cloche because my dear friend Olive found one for me in her many hunts. I just pulled mine out to display my newly found shells while in HH. I usually use my cheese dome. I love the cherries and the ironstone. The camera and lace looks so romatic.

And all in my favorite colors!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

I love how you decorated your cloche! And your dome is a cloche, definately!

Well done.

Gail said...

O'how CUTE they both are Maggie!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

You are really good at this! I'm in love with your retro looking red, white & blue cloche!

karen@somewhatquirky said...

Bliss nor I have cloches. I have TWO fake cloches - cheese covers. I think bliss has one of those too! They are too expensive! You sure know how to make a gorgeous vignette.

Debbie Booth said...

Adorable! I love it. You did a good job with your cloches. So cute and creative.
