i’ve been big into cloches lately — sometimes called bell jars. i love the unexpected little collections you can keep underneath them – like specimens to be inspected of our most beloved treasures. those sometimes strange little things we pick up in our travels and aren’t quite sure what to do with. i found this little vintage flip calendar at the perish trust and thought it might look sweet under a cloche — an interesting way for me to keep track of what day it is. same with the london stamp — a gentle reminder to myself that i need to get back there, and soon. a weird architectural finial? sure, why not. a few tiny broken branches, yep, i’ll keep them under a cloche, too. what would you keep under yours? here’s a few more ideas to inspire. you.
you can find vintage ones in all shapes in sizes at flea markets, etsy and ebay, or new ones at places like z gallerie, this cool sanctus cloche with a rope handle from anthropologie, or cost plus world market.
