Changing Up My Cloche

When you last saw my Mother's Day gift cloche, it was holding pumpkins and apples in one of my first fall vignettes.

Today I put my cloche on a cake plate that I have had since the mid 1970's. It had a gold base. I really never use it for cake, so when I saw that the cloche fit on it nicely, I painted the base white.



Here is my cake stand and cloche with some faux weedy plant with small purple flowers and my old camera.



Isn't this hand clip stand great? I purchased it last week at the consignment shop for $10. It's marked Godinger on the bottom. It's a reproduction Victorian hand clip stand. They are selling them on Etsy for quite a bit more.



This is one of my Great Grandmothers on my Dad's side.


And my Great Grandpa. He was born in Norway.



Rounding out this vignette is a silver tray with an older Bible and vintage eyeglasses.






Decorating with cloches is sooooo fun!

  3. Love, love, love this!! The cake stand looks amazing (and now I can keep on the lookout for one and know I can remove the gold). My GG & GG were born in Norway too. Wish I had photos of them. Gorgeous vignette!

  4. I just got my first cloche. I love the camera under it. Mine has a furry owl that I need to post. I also took a picture of the other owl and will post them together and let you know so you can see your owl's almost twin.
    The little weinee dog that I gave Lynn is about an inch long. Yeah, I forgot I collected them, hah.

  18. Hi Carlene!
    I love the hand stand holding the pics! Very nice vignette. I am cloche challenged, I can never get it right!
    I read your comment about a Northern Bloggers Conference on Cottage at the Crossroads. I don't see where you are from in your profile.
    A few of us from the NY, NJ. CT area have been talking about a meet up. There aren't that many of us it seems.

  21. What a beautiful vignette, Charlene! You were so clever to put your cloche on a glass cake stand.
    But what takes my breath away is your old bible and vintage glasses on the silver tray. It tells such a story!!!
