under the dome







While at L.L. Bean Home in Freeport, Maine last month, I drooled over all the beautiful cottage and camp furnishings and decor available.  I couldn't take home the gorgeous painted wood cottage-style furniture but as I wandered the store I spied a glass cloche.  Hmmm....

Now, most of you know that glass cloches are all the rage on  home decor blogs and I have desired one for a while and often commented that I couldn't find one in our area.

When I spied this cloche with the metal tray under it I got quite excited.   This one was a perfect size, not too large or small.

Bird and nest rest under the dome.

While I wandered the store I kept thinking about the cloche.  There were three of them on the shelf and there were at least 3 other customers wandering.  I worried the cloche might go home with them.  All 3 of them!  







I roamed upstairs and down and went back to the shelf to pick up the cloche and tray which were still there.   Happily, I took it home with me.




This sweet lavender sachet is another gift that Vee gave me.  She is so sweet to know that I'd love this sachet which she got it from another blogger {whose name I have forgotten} and it is perfect for this vignette on the tray.

Edit to add: The sachet was made by Dawn at "The Feathered Nest".  Dawn has an Etsy shop.



So, now I have a cloche.  I love it.  I love the metal crimped edge tray under it.  I can change out the decor under it with the seasons too.  
And guess what I saw at Winner's the other day??
Two glass cloches!  They are very tall though and I don't have room for one more so I passed them by.


I'm joining with these lovely blogs this week:





Thanks so much for visiting and leaving a comment.

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. So pretty and the metal bottom piece is really unusual. I also like the addition of the little sachet with the pretty typography. A great look. I would love to visit LLBean in person one day.

  3. Oh. Now I want to zip down to LL Bean. Wonder if John's in the mood for a rainy drive this late in the evening. They're open 24/7...

    I can help with the sachet information. It was purchased from Dawn at The Feathered Nest. She has an Etsy Shop listed on her blog. And I must say that the sachet looks beautiful in your vignette.

  4. A pretty spring vignette Pamela. I haven't pulled my glass cloche down from the top of the hutch to play with for awhile. This one must have been waiting for you.

  15. Oh Pamela....what a beautiful setting. So well put together. I have always wanted one of those cloches, too.It looks so classy with the bird and the nest, eggs and even the pink flower under the cloche. I love it.You will be able to do so much wiwth it during all the different seasons or even to just change it because yu want to. They are very in demand now. Now, I love the sachet and will have to track down where I can find one. I think you mentioned it on your post. Really enjoyed this post, too, as always.

  20. Morning Pamela. As you know me as a reader not a commentator for the most part but I had to post when I read of budget constraints on cloche yearnings. I done a few vignettes with glass cake covers and wooden cheese plates ~ available at thrift stores. Matching glass and wood is a challenging pastime. I love the hunt. My real aha moment came when I ordered glass dome replacement covers for anniversary clocks. Just look under clock repair. They come in two sizes, are beautifully delicate and are easy on the pocket. Love your idea of seasonal change ~ happy spring.

  21. Love your new cloche too, Pamela! What a lovely decorative setting. : )

  22. I like it that the cloche has it's own special tray. I'm sure you will have fun decorating with it!

  23. Pamela, I'm so happy you found a cloche! It is a nice one too. I like the crimped tray beneath it. I like your little birdie and nest vignette. Very cute and aren't you going to have fun changing it up.
    I found my first cloche at a shop in Summerside and I had it only a few days when I was dusting around it, and you guessed it, I knocked it off onto the floor. I was heartsick! So Hubby and I drove back up to Summerside later and I found another one. Since then, I am seeing them everywhere and I have several in different sizes. The first one is still my favourite however. Thank you for sharing your lovely find with my HOME and have a beautiful weekend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  24. Hi Pamela! Oh, I'm so glad you found a cloche and what a beautiful one! Love the little metal tray it sits on. And...my dear, you've set up such a beautiful vignette using it too. You'll have to link this post to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her upcoming cloche party!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  28. What a lovely find, the tray adds to the beauty. Those are robin's eggs are they not. I've thought of having a cloche of my own and then have passed them by so often. Maybe I could see things in another light under a cloche, hum. You inspire me, I'll keep looking,
    Blessings,

  31. OOOOH! So glad you got it! It is quite lovely. It makes me think of the original use of cloches with the metal base - for plants - looks fantastically vintage. Love how you've decorated it and the sachet is marvelous! I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
    Kathy
