I love cloche's and I'm not sure when my love affair with them began but one by one they came to Linderhof. Most are different and all were on sale. I love the fact that most of them are blown glass which gives them imperfections. At Linderhof, nothing is perfect. And although we mostly use the cloches indoors, sometimes they do go out in the garden -- in fact I like the look of them in the garden!
So I was thrilled to join Marty for her Cloche Party. Visit A Stroll Thru Life to see the good things that everyone puts under glass!
My first cloche is a wee one -- bought at Nell Hills and the rabbit came from another store that I adore -- J'Adore in Kansas City. It's always been in the bedroom and right now I love it on the end table.
Front porch summer time has two of the cloches -- a paper mache bird in one (which looks old but isn't -- a Nell Hill's purchase and a favorite) and a bird's nest in the other.
I like the way that they balance the gnome at the other end of the metal table. I like the different elements -- basket, green, concrete, glass.
Sometimes the robin and his glass dome come in for a table decoration. He's as handsome inside as he is out.
Two cloches that match -- from Pottery Barn on a deep sale bought because of Bunny Williams book, An Affair With a House, and the two cloches in her living room with antique French silk plants under them. I was lucky to find these two planters with silk plants and although they have some age on them they are neither French nor antique. I'm hopeful that Ms. Williams would not mind my copying her idea. They moved around a bit -- although they did start in the living room and no matter where I put them, I do like them.And four of my favorite cloches. Under which all I put is the rhubarb. Four Guy Wolffe rhubarb forcers. They look great in the garden. And they're functional as well!
