Wow, due to our homeschool drama group's performance of Alice in Wonderland, finishing up our school year and spending Memorial Day weekend with family, I've not had any computer time!
Most of you probably knew this, but I just found out what cloches were originally for! The french used them to protect young garden plants from frost. The word cloche means bell, which explains the shape! Who knew? (everyone but me, I'm guessing!)
I'm glad they found their way from the garden into our homes - they are so versatile. The possibilities are endless for displays!
I found this set of vintage etched beauties on a treasure hunt over the weekend-
Aren't they the sweetest things? Yes, I'm loving cloches at the moment!
These little pretties are up for grabs in my shop if anyone is interested. I was really tempted to keep them for myself, but of course I'm tempted to keep EVERYTHING I find. I only put things in my shop that I truly love!
There ya go - Cloche 101!!!
