Cloches

Did you know there is a cloche party this month? *gasp* I'm always the last to know! I love cloches. Little micro vignettes totally protected by a glass dust covering..... sweet. I have one glass cloche. I know, I know..... so whats a girl to do right? Why make some of course. I don't know about you, but I come across these glass domes all the time. I see at least 4 a month, and they are always under $2. I've had these three in my stash for about 2 years. Finally I'm motivated to do something with them! A little windex to clean them up a bit.... A smidge of E6000 glue, glass knobs, and several clear round faceted beads to cover the hole at the top each glass knob. Taaaa daaaaaaa 3 cloches ready for a party~

Very good idea! I found a cheese plate with a glass cover at a yard sale. I'm going to paint the wood plate white and maybe it won't look so "cheesy"! Hah!
