I love this old lamp base, and thought the cloche looked neat sitting on it.  
Love this one...its small, but wine corks look kinda cool under it...
Just a little nest under this one.
Heres another version with the rusty lamp base.

Just thought I'd share a few ideas I use glass domes (cloches) for...nothing too exciting or new here, but they are FUN to decorate with.  I dug out my spring stuff and took a few pictures...THINK SPRING!

Anthing would look nice under the cloche with the rusty
lamp base! However, I do like the wine corks under it
which I would have never thought of. Thanks for sharing!
Good Luck with "junk" this New Year. Posted: 10:04 am on December 24th

CottageElements writes: For my favorite Member Post of 2009, my logical choice has got to be a post on cloches, now doesn't it. It was a hard pick, though. There were so many amazing projects and creative members out there. But Andrea, you have hit the nail on the head in all your junk oriented vignettes using the beauty of glass cloches. Love how you displayed them! And my favorite has to be the rusting floor lamp base! Can't get any better than rust and cloches. You rocked this one, girl!

Junk_Sophisticate writes: Beautiful displays Andrea! Are you sure your second photo wasn't on a cover of a magazine?? It's gorgeous! Unfortunately I don't have many cloches personally, other than the little ones who's former life was the top of a cheese platter. Still like them though.

Great post!

MimiToria writes: Andrea - I too love cloches, and am always looking for them. Most of mine currently are smaller, as I don't have much space to have table scape displays, but now that I'll be reselling, I will be looking for large ones too.
Beautiful displays! My favorite is the lamp base used with the cloche, but I'm a sucker for birds nests.
Thanks for sharing!

piecesofthepast writes: Very cool displays! My favorite ones are the clock and the eggs with the bunny. I don't have a lot of room to display cloches in my house, so I'm envious of those who have room to set up stuff like this. That old lamp base was quite a find! Posted: 4:40 pm on March 11th
CottageElements writes: Andrea, I think we all have a thing for cloches! I was just thinking of doing something on them as I have a fairly large collection. These look amazing. I love the floor lamp base. I think that's my favorite. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for one of them!

The lamp base is perfect - great idea!

rebeljunker writes: Just love your cloche displays, especially the ones using old lamp bases! Love the rest of your displays too, you are a very talented lady! Looking forward to more of your creativeness, Di. Posted: 11:08 pm on March 10th
JunkArchitect writes: You come up with the coolest displays. They always have just the right amount of rust mixed with all your other great objects.

fellowjunker writes: I love, love, love cloches as well, and love what you've done with all yours. The lamp base is a wonderful idea. So glad you shared some "spring" moments. Even though the crocus' are blooming here we are having record low temps.

texasjunkermom writes: Very pretty, each one. I needed one to serve a practical use and my husband moved heaven and earth trying to find one for me. He did and it is in use right now to keep dust off a very precious ornament made by a 90+year-old lady. I'd love to find some like yours. Maybe at a garden shop? Love the ones on the rusty lamp bases. (I'm trying not to covet!) Posted: 10:40 pm on March 10th
