Glass Cloches Bell Dome Decorative Home Decor Serving

Glass Cloches Bell Dome Decorative Home Decor Serving. Welcome to LilacsNDreams, and glad to see you visiting with Me! Above the pictures you are viewing are all Glass Cloches that I have repurposed so far. The top left pink one is listed with my LilacsNDreams Artfire store, and is the first one that I made. The other two are ready to be listed with my store. Slight delay this week, but is a working progress. 

Some people will ask, What is a cloche? A cloche is french for bell. Cloche jars were originally hand blown jars used to protect plants from cold, and frost. You will also find that they may be referred to the following as well.
• Bell instrument especially with music. A restaurant Bell shaped cover for plate of food used to retain warmth. A dome shaped clay oven used for baking single loaf breads.
• Row Cover: a covering which is for protecting plants from cold temperatures
• Cloche Hat: close fitting hat/womens which is worn by flappers in the 20s

Basically a Cloche was, and still is one of the latest rages in home decor. There are websites that sell these. Some of the prices from these sites are quite spendy. I myself prefer not to pay some of them prices which I am sure others feel the same way too. So, I have been making my own that I will be offering with my store at Artfire. I have seen others who have made these as well, and some of them are just gorgeous with what they do, and how they present them! Sometimes vintage glass pieces are used, and sometimes a more modern piece is used as well. After viewing websites, and what others have to offer I started to watch different Thrift Stores for pieces that I could also use myself. I also would check through some of my own belongings at home, other pieces of inventory I have, and etc.

Cloches have many uses for them. They are pretty, and can be paired with many different things in order for you to get a variety of looks. They look great adorning mantles, counters, tables, knick knack shelves, using woodland floral arrangements, single flowers, succulents, showing precious photos, collections of seashells, vintage objects, ornaments, and many many possibilities. Can be used for everyday, holidays, special occasions, gifts, and so on. They are versatile because of what you choose to put under it.
