Spring Cloche

Finally, I found some cloches. :) 


The cloche in the middle is nice and big.  I found all three at Hobby Lobby. I am so happy that they are finally going to carry cloches. 


I made a spring arrangement and place a little bird right in the middle.   For the bottom, I used a white plate, a bowl to place the flowers, and a champagne glass to perch my little bird.


I think it looks wonderfully cheerful.:)


As for the other two cloches, I’m still looking to see what I can place in them.  They are small!


I’m getting ready to paint my kitchen walls in Svelte Sage by S.W.  My hubby told me that this is *my* project so it looks like I will be painting it by myself (unless I look at him with puppy eyes)  ha ha!

I saw all the cloches at HL. Finally! I still want some individual ones that don't cost a fortune...

Hi Sandra! Oh, Woo Hooness for you that you found some cloches! I just love them. You've really made a gorgeous arrangement in it! Love the brightly colored flowers!
Now you've been changing your header again. Looks great.

Sandra, of course you know that I absolutely LOVE your cloches. How creative to use a champagne glass to elevate the little bird. I will definitely have to remember that. The little ones are so sweet and precious too. I think maybe we almost need to have another cloche party. Your mantel looks fabulous too. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

What a pretty Spring vignette. You will be doing something one day , see something and think "that would look so pretty under glass". :)

Sandra, that cloche is awesome!! How did you photograph with no glare? I'm so jealous. I can barely take a decent cloche photo. Maybe it's my glass.

I'm so glad you will be linking up to Woo Hoo! Wednesday tomorrow. I'll be up and running about 4:00 Texas time (I always know that time because of Mom)so I'll see you then.
Hugs, Marla

Love the lovely Cloches! I wish i could find MORE but no luck. They must be gobbled up before I even get a chance!

Bravo to you!xoRebecca

We don't have Hobby Lobby's in California. I am searching for a nice big cloche that won't break the bank. Your's look so pretty all ready for spring.

Natasha in Oz said...

Wow, these are beautiful cloches Sandra! You have decorated them beautifully. I wish I could find some more but they don't seem to be readily available her in Australia...YET! I will keep looking!

Best wishes,

If the puppy eyes don't work, try threats. Works with MY hubby anyway.
Love the cloches -- I still don't have any! Love the bird one.
So pretty!

Sue said...

Oh how pretty...I love the little bird inside. You will be hooked now on all the things you can put in them.

Sandra, thank you so much for linking to Woo Hoo! Wednesday. I hope you didn't have any problems because I sure did with the linky. Oh was I frustrated and accidentally deleted all the links from last week. Agghhhh!! I know this is a learning curve but I hate it when I mess up that bad. :(

Carol said...

I love your cloches & the tip about using a champagne glass for the bird...clever!

Sonny G said...

love your new cloche and your vignette is lovely..


Kat said...

I love the way you designed your cloche. That bird is adorable. Good luck with the painting - if you are going for puppy eyes, try Basset Hound eyes - they work great :) Kathy
