Oh a Cloche, why a cloche?

What is it with a cloche?
 By definition a bell shaped glass to protect seedlings. 
O but it is so very much more in the home. 
It captures something we love. 
 Maybe a tiny new plant, a figurine, anyting that makes you smile.
My vignette is spring inspired and full of elements I love. 
The textures, colors and layers make it all come together for me.

BUT I had decided I wanted to make mine...
I had seen so very much on blogs,
great chicken wire,
glass of all shapes glued to this and that.
SO...my search began.
A clearance dome at A.C. Moore...YES!
Odds and ends...E600 to hold it all together!
A great knob and eggs from Virginia's shop at Chartreuse and Co.

A burlap rosette to start with loads of moss,
a little robins egg blue paint rubbed with a little burlap...
A little # and dragon fly embellishment...
Or a bee, you know I love my bees!
Add a little greenery and a feather to boot!
My Cloche!
Oh and while I was at it I had to use some supplies left over...
a glass candle holder, glass pot, some crystals, candles,
 moss and green burlap ribbon....
And you get...
A springtime votive with a little bling.
So dig around, find the things you love too and see what you get!
All for sale at Just B -- Home, Art, Life at

Oh , maybe one stays at my little home.
