I'm Obsessed!!!

Never did I dream that when I started blogging
(thanks DIL for getting me hooked)
that I would be on a quest to find beautiful cloches. 
I look for them everywhere I go - they are pretty scarce,
but ever once in a while, I luck upon one. 
So, today when I found this one,
I knew I just had to have it. 
It's very large and I can actually put a
ten-layer Italian Cream Cake under it, I do believe. 

I had the cake plate -
I believe I paid
one whole dollar for this
twenty plus years ago.
It has been just waiting for this cloche.
Don't you think?

I found this pretty light green moss
at Hobby Lobby -
just looks so "springy".
Looks like this little bird gathered it
to make the nest she is sitting upon.

And, this little "feathered" friend
was a
find at Michaels -
a cutie for sure!!!

Yep, I'm getting
Spring Fever.
Someone needs to tell
the weather man though!

The little white container
holding the flowers is
actually my father-in-law's
old shaving mug.
Lovin' it!!!

Having fun with y'all!
Thanks for stopping by for
a visit. 
Please come again!

  1. How pretty everything is. Love your cloche. And I agree about the weather man, sounds like we need to just straighten them out lol.

  2. Your cloche is so cute! Love that you used the shaving mug as a vase!

  3. Gorgeous arrangement!

    I am having an antique auction on my blog. All sorts of lovely and romantic finds looking for a new home. I hope you'll stop by.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I love, love, love cloches too. They can be glass or wire, love them all. Don't they just make anything displayed inside them look so pretty and important? Anyways, yours is very pretty with the cute little birdie inside. Oh and what an awesome deal on the cake plate. Thanks for sharing. Have a fantabulous weekend.

  5. Hi,, that is quite the cloche --- please let us see when you put that ten layer Cream Cake under it! :*) I love the little birdie and it's sweet details,,,, Hopefully the Michael's in my town will have them when I go check tomorrow!
    About the shaving cream mug being reinvented --- isn't it so special when you can take old family treasures and put them to use in creative ways?
    Thanks for sharing!!!

  6. Such a sweet little cloche~ how charming! Thanks for sharing at FNF! :)

  7. I feel the same as you - I don't know that I'd ever heard of (or at least never paid attention) a cloche before blogging! I too have been on the lookout, but so far I haven't found any that are the right price! BTW, I just got one of those cute little birds at Michael's yesterday for $1.50! Mine's green and just adorable. I'm a new follower. Come and visit me if you get a chance.
