HOME...THE STORY OF WHO WE ARE AND A COLLECTION OF ALL THE THINGS WE LOVE.
The first known use of the cloche dates back to the early 1800's. Garden cloches have been used extensively in European countries for well over a hundred years.
There is something charming about a cloche. Maybe it's the quaint knob that sits on top. Or perhaps, it's their caretaking purpose as they guard small plants from predators or from the wind and the cold. Many people use them indoors to showcase collections or as terrariums for house plants. They can also be used as an elegant display case for precious objects.
There is such a wonderful array of cloches. They can be made of chicken wire, metal, plastic and terra cotta, but the most popular is glass.
Love these chicken wire and metal cloches purchased at Milk House Market in Friona, Texas. Anxious to fill them with spring and Easter goodies.
Here, one cloche houses some sweet angels, while another holds a ceramic bunny.
These two showcase a variety of vintage salt shakers.
Love this collection of silver bells and toothpick holders.
We both enjoy using cloches ... we love to find ways to use them in our everyday décor and seasonally.
These cloches sit on the dining room table and kitchen table and are always filled with seasonal and holiday décor. Here they are housing Valentine décor but will soon be filled with Easter fun.
This cobalt blue cloche, sitting on a vintage scale, is one of my favorites. It was purchased at Lone Star Home and Garden Center.
There are so many ways to incorporate cloches into your home décor. Hope you found a few ideas you can use.
