A wonderful vintage disgarded oval silver dish turned display.  A real birds nest under the cloche is the hi-lite of this piece.
Another cloche display used in conjunction with the bulls eye wood piece from a doorway.
Another cloche that is layered on a metal round piece below a vintage plate and than set on the plate.  So many things look better under glass.

I just love this time of year, Spring.  Long walks in the woods yielded many pieces of wonderful moss, and moss filled downed pieces of branches which are wonderful in vignettes.  In the silver tray display, there is real moss, as well as a found piece of moss branch and a disgarded birds nest that I found on the ground out at the cabin.  There were two little sticks criss crossed in the nest, which made it really unique.

I love to add nature items under cloches and really make a point to feature that item when decorating. 

Just an example of some fun things you can do with very little $, and very little time.  By the way the cloches are repurposed into being cloches and are not their original intention.  Everything is repurposed in this post.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
