Cloche Arrangements

I try to mix up my cloche arrangements every so often.  I have been wanting to use one as a terrarium of sorts, so I found a button fern and wrapped some moss ribbon around a plain old terra cotta pot.

Sarah gave me the owls…they are so cute.  And the blue plate under the cloche goes to a cobalt blue cloche Sarah also gave me!

What doesn’t look better with seashells?

This cloche has seashells on top of a lacy doily with a birds nest and eggs.

Have I mentioned I love seashells?

Well, I also happen to really like peacock feathers (I even have a Pinterest board full of them—here).

I added some spools with mostly blue thread on them to a blue mason jar.  I thought it looked OK, but it wasn’t tall enough to look great in the cloche!  So I added a peacock feather…perfect!  And the colors were perfect in the thread!

Looking great!

Very nice. I love your cloches and what you showcased inside them. I love the wooden spools. Stopping by from At the Picket Fence.

Came over from Shabbilicious to see more of your cloche designs. You are very talented at the arrangements. I love the spools. I am still envious of your cloche collection!

Great ideas. I have been looking for some of those deep cloches. No luck yet. Yours look fantastic.
