An old drawer nob, faucet turn, Grandmas buttons, and wedding beads make a tassle or ornament.
The little cheese keeper sitting on a pretty white plate, in the corner, isnt finished yet, I will add a red glitter roof. snow, and glitter all around.
The tall cloche use to have UGLY plastic flowers in it. I put it with a tarnished silver tray with pretty legs.
Just a little church I made from card stock, most of the pre-made ones seemed to big.
Got this marble top, brass stand for a buck and dabbed antique white paint on it.

The tall cloche is a memory cloche... The antique bird and the crochet doily were my late mother-in-laws, the Cardinal's nest was built outside the courtyard of our classroom as we watched, reminding me spring will come again.  The old sculpy shoe, with a sign proclaiming, "No one else can fill your shoes." was handmade by my sweet Moma. The crystal beads everyone hand-twisted for my daughter's  crystal wedding bouquet represents all the love our family has for each other, and the fresh red berry vines let me know whatever I try to make God's creation is the most astoundingly beautiful of all.  Thanks, Lezlee

CottageElements writes: Lezlee, great collection of cloches and I love the memory cloche. Very meaniful and I love that about it. As to your questions regarding your post not showing up, I suspect it was a glich in the system. We have problems every once and awhile. I'm not sure it can be fixed. Can you republish it? Thanks for all your posts!
