Winter Cloches

Our kitchen table is one of my favourite spots for a cloche center piece.

I don't have a glass cloche (the huge one I had broke a few years ago) but I do have a pair of tall black wire cloches.

After visting an estate sale this weekend I decided to use the platter and two little creamers I picked up, for $5 total, in a little cloche vignette for Marty's Winter Cloche Party.

I layered some crochet edged napkins to the new platter on a tray I painted charcoal grey.

Then the large wooden spool was added to give some height to the little Meakin ironstone creamer.

I used the other little creamer and two tiny vintage spoons for interest.

 My favourite colour combination -shades of whites with woods and grounded with black.

This is a very simple little vignette pulled together with my collected pieces but I love how it mimics the colours and textures from the display on the freshly painted buffet and hutch behind it.

And this is the same cloche from earlier in the month with the chunky candle cozy I knit and some little hearts I sewed.

I used a vintage cutwork napkin in the tray and added a tarnished pedestal plate to give the cloche a lift

The hearts were sewn with leftover cotton quilt batting and linen tea towelling fabric.

Even the little knit candle cozy has a heart -a heart button!

Thank you for sharing these cute cloches at my NTT party.

Love, love, love the farmhouse look you have going on, Elizabeth!
Your hutch looks amazing!
The wire cloche makes me think of chickens, and hen houses, and gathering eggs. I love the way you use all of your treasures in decorating. Even your wooden spools on your hutch, and on the table.
The silver tray is gorgeous!!

Just love your wire cloches and the display you created. I love this color combo too and use it throughout my home as well. You are so talented with your vignettes.
Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Love your vignettes! I haven't seen the wire cloches, but that's what I need with Boo (the cat) around. Sometimes he like to redecorates for me by pushing glass to the floor!
Thanks for joining Country Whites Weekend and inspiring others! You have lots of "Country Charm". . . .

Blessings from the Farmhouse,
