When you put ordinary things under glass something magical seems to happen! Pretty thing become spectular, attention-grabbing centers of attention!
I am joining Marti at A Stroll Thur Life for a "Holiday Cloche Party". It is fun to see what holiday vignettes are created by the talented participants!
I am a little late for the party being a tad under the weather (and not good timing). But I put together a bit of Christmas-Cheer-Under-Glass because I don't want to miss the party altogether!
The inspiration for this post is the little blue and white pot in the cloche. It originally held a perfect tiny poinsetta, but it would not fit under my little cloche. So I dug through my Christmas boxes and came up with this blue and white Christmas scene. I am moving this to my dressing table in my blue and yellow and white bedroom. Yea! A spontaneous decoration!
This is truely a thrown together, bits and pieces arrangement- notice (or don't) the red ornament box under my settee' in the foyer. Ooops! I tried to carry the same elements and colors from one part of the vignette to the other.
Because my only cloches are small (note to self- 1. put "big honkin' cloche" on gift list-2. cut out picture of big honkin' cloche and tape it to Bobby hunting clothes) I used little left out and left over pieces of greens, berries and a couple of small green balls. I stripped 2 yellow glittery balls from the wreath at the base to tuck in the cloche arrangement. I think I will make a couple more litte arrangements using left-over.
I hope this inspires you to find things you already have and repurpose them into fresh looks!
Today is decorating day #3. Check back to see some Christmas reveals!
