It never happens. I have two posts in one day. I'm really not trying to make up for lost time and I do want you to read my fun Foodie Friday post...I promise it will make you hungry. When I got back to blogging a couple of days ago and saw that Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life was hosting her Summer Cloche Party today, I didn't think I had a chance of getting anything ready so I could play along. However, I couldn't stand feeling left out so I quickly put together a couple of little cloches (would someone please tell me if that is a word) this morning.
I brought home this sweet little silver compote from my mother's collection. I added a small glass dome and I had a cloche. My love for all things Florida came out in this one with the addtion of beach glass and a favorite shell.
My second cloche is really special to me. A dear friend from high school, who I haven't seen since my 10th reunion, has once again come into my life via Facebook. During the past few months she has really been a loving, supportive friend. When I arrived at the funeral home for my mother's visitation, you can only imagine how surprised I was to find a sweet little teacup filled with roses. The card said that I could use the teacup for my tablescapes, or drink a cup of tea and think of my mom. I was so touched. What I actually did was allow the roses to dry along with the baby's breath.
I couldn't fit the saucer under the dome, but I love how this protects the dried roses and reminds me of my sweet friend.
Please take a moment to visit Marty and see the just how creative people can be when it comes to putting something under glass!
