Cloche Love

Buzz and I keep collecting these Bell Jars
and I love experimenting with them...
Some how, they give whatever is under them
a sense of value and importance.

 This one is displaying an old photograph we've had for years...
along with  an old pair of reading glasses
and an envelope that has that 
beautiful script 
that was so common a hundred years ago.
I found an old pearl handle knife...
It made my gentlemen's display complete.

I love the way simple elements from nature
look displayed this way.

I'm sure I'll share more of these little
vignettes under glass
from time to time...
They're an ongoing experiment... ":o)

  1. Geneva, I love your gentleman display under the
    bell cloche. I have been looking for them in thrift stores but just haven't found any. I also like the acorns and pumpkins in the glass.
    Have a great day.

  2. YOur cloche is stunning with the photo and antique treasures. I find old cards and envelopes so fun and I love to see the beautiful script writing on anything. Adding the glasses and the shaving knife is perfect. I also really like the pumpkin display. So pretty. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  3. I loved both of your, so pretty!!

  4. Love the bell jar and especially the vignette with the little pumpkin and acorns! Just love nature's beauty. I also wish I had a wheelbarrow like in your blog header photo! Thanks for following me...following you now, too!

  5. Your nostalgic cloche is full of treasures! I love this idea.

    Of course the acorns just set off your little pumpkin in the cloche.

    I too like your header for fall and going now to check out some of your previous posts.

  6. Very, very lovely. You summed it up so well and your treasures are beautiful displayed under your cloche. I love your wheelbarrow banner!

  7. Love your "gentleman's cloche" with the old fashioned treasures. Very handsome.

  8. I really like the pumpkin and acorn cloche. This whole "cloche thing" is new to me, but there is some very delightful things one can do with them, I see... just might have to get one!

  9. I so agree that putting things under a cloches makes them seem more special and important. Your vintage treasures look beautiful under that gorgeous cloche!

    Best wishes always,

  15. hi Geneva, you must be from north Texas. I adore your bell jars and dearly love your gentleman's arrangement. The greenhouse inspiration is wonderful too - wouldn't it be completely romantic to have a little conservatory in the back yard? Thank you for visiting and leaving such a thoughtfully kind comment. It's so nice to meet you and your blog! -Diane
