A Cloche Inspired By Nature

A Summer Cloche
 filled with paper wasps nests, fern leaves
 and a pair of bird watching binoculars.

All things inspired by my husband,
who always inspires me.
(Buzz's Garden Journal)

to a 

It's kinda like having a little boy...
You never know what he'll bring in the house next. 
(I always check his pockets on wash day)


  1. You are so right, lovely Cloche. So glad you shared, Kathy

  2. How fun, very nicely gathered and displayed!!

  3. Geneva, this is one of my favorites! I love that the cloche is on a open book that's on a silver tray. I love the vintage and natural feel to it. Well done! New follower!

  4. How wonderful to have a hubby that loves nature. Your photos today are beautiful. Blessings to you and I LOVE the journal- xo Diana

  5. Love Buzz's Journal... how very inspirational! ~Pat

  6. Oh what a lovely cloche vignette. I love the wasps nests and the binoculars are just unreal. Great job. Thanks tons for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  7. Really loved your cloche contents. How neat that it was all inspired by your hubby.
    I love nature too, and love finding neat things in the yard, and so does my son. His
    job is in the agriculture field, so he loves plants and nature as well.
    This was a very neat idea and also looks lovely, and the sentiments are lovely as well.
    Just beautiful!
    Blessings, Nellie

  8. I love your cloche inspired by nature and Buzz! I would never have thought to put wasp nests and binoculars under a cloche but it is wonderful.
    Blessings, Barb

  9. That is a charming vignette...and a tribute to your naturalist husband!

  10. That cute Buzz...I am so glad you have him. This reminds me that I found a wasp nest in my rose garden and I forgot to bring it in...I will recreate your beautiful vignette!

  11. Hi Geneva!

    How sweet... you have dedicated this cloche to your hubby. I love all those nature themed elements under glass.

    Thanks for sharing at my party :)

  12. I love cloches and your display is unique.

  13. Your vignette looks so pretty and I love the naturalist theme. I've used a Hornet's nest for decorating, but never a wasp nest. When you look at the design of the nest, the pattern is fascinating.

  14. I love to bring natural elements into our home. Putting these under a cloche is a wonderful idea. I may have to copy this idea. I recently found a large wasp next. Once I sprayed it to rid it of wasps, I' saved it for a spot in our house. Nature is a wonderful!

  15. I wish I was more diligent about checking my husband's pockets... he left some of the kids' crayons in his shirt pocket and it ruined EVERYTHING in the dryer!

  16. This is so beautiful! Love the naturals. . .

  17. I love it Geneva. Now why have I been throwing my wasp nests away? I recently found a vintage pair of binoculars for only $5. My youngest daughter loved them so I let her take them. Think I need to be on the look out for more. I love it! It's especially fun that your hubby helped to inspire you. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  18. Oh so pretty! I adore you lovely cloche. I have vintage binoculars too and just love using them! Thank you for sharing at Potpourri Friday!

  19. I love the way you styled your cloche! I finally bought myself a cloch of my own. A teeny, tiny one. :@

  20. I love the sweet sentiment of your post. Your cloche is lovely, especially the shape. The vintage binoculars make it so special. They make me think of my husband too :)
