Cloche, mon amour

I'm joining in on the fun ... its a Cloche Party at A Stroll Through Life! I've already seen some sneak peaks, and I'm a little out of my league but I just had to share what I've got. If you're looking for some inspiration you definitely need to check out every entry!

This cloche didn't start out as a cloche at all. I was lucky enough to come across this clock at Goodwill ... not my style, but I new I could make it mine!
After a little TLC, I turned this outdated clock into an Anthro-esque cloche.
This cheese dome stood out to me one day at Goodwill ... I knew I had to have it, to make a cloche.
It's small, so I actually leave it empty ... I still think there's just something about it!
Hope you enjoyed what I have to share ... hopefully someday my collection can be like some of the other partiers! Don't forget to check them out - you will not be disappointed.

  1. I have a clock like that. My father bought it when he was in the Air Force for my grandmother. I think it must have been a fairly popular item for service men back then. It does make a lovely cloche and I like the white bottom.

  3. Jennifer, I do so love the way you changed the clock into the cloche. That is darling honey. Please stop by and see my collection. You might just find an inspiration for that cheese dome. I finally put a couple of things together for mine. Look forward to hearing from you. Country hugs, Sherry

  11. My parents had a clock like this, too. I had no idea that this was a cloche! I learn something new everyday... The little empty cloche is filled...with good thoughs and creative ideas.
    (Would you believe I also had a "horse" which looked just like "Donkey"?)

    Have a wonderful weekend.
