Vintage Inspiration Friday #30: "Cloche" at Hand

A few weeks ago, after visiting
 Leola's Vintage Home and Garden's Spring Open house
I was filled with all sorts of inspiration for Spring.





One of my favorite spaces was created by Judy, one of the owners.
I spent so much time ooohing and aaahing over her moss covered garden and cloches.



Anything "Vintage Garden" always stops me in my tracks!

I've not tried African Violets before,
but I couldn't resist this little punch of color for one of my cloches.




Tiered cake plates covered in faux moss are the base for this Springtime tribute.
The milk glass one on the bottom was my mom's.



And I brought out my nativity lambs in honor of Easter.









These pics were taken while I was waiting for the paint to dry
 on my Eastlake dresser in the entry hall.
Sorry for the glare of the glass,
 I tried these in several spots, just couldn't get away from the glare.


 Here's Judy's space again,


She found these delicate ferns and moss on her gorgeous country property.






Oh how I love these chippy white shutters!



Thank you Judy, for some wonderful Spring time ideas!

I really appreciate each one of you that links up for the Party!
You all make it so hard to choose just four to feature.
I love seeing all your great vintage inspiration,
so remember, anything vintage or "vintage inspired".

Here's some great inspiration from last week:

from the V-Spot.

No Minimalist Here



at the DIY Design Fanatic



If you've been featured please grab the "featured" button,
and I'd love for you to show the VIF button on your sidebar or post.
I always try to take the time to show off all the great parties,
people are much more apt to visit if the cute button is there.



So if you have time, come by and visit these other great parties that I'm linking to!











Hopefully, I'm finishing up the Laundry Room this weekend.
Actually, it turned out better than I thought.
"The Reveal" (lol!!), next week!

Have a great weekend
lots of love,
Debra

  7. That is really lovely, Debra! I love all the displays, but I do like the flat moss in yours best.

  8. I love your spring display, that moss is yummy!. I tried linking to your blog, but something happened, the image doesn't appear, it just shows a cute face and says no thumbnail (#6) may be I did something wrong, I will try better next time.
    You did inspire me with that moss and lambs, I grow my own moss, so as soon as I get home I will go outside to get some. Thank you!

  9. I love the cloches! I hope you don't mind, but I re-shared some older posts of mine that feature spring cloches! I really like how you used your Nativity lambs with your Easter décor! I have a collection of lambs I usually pull out this time of year, and now I can't find them!

  13. I love your cloche's. What a great idea to get out the sheep from the nativity. I can't wait to put some Easter stuff out as soon as my dining room is pulled back together. I love how you stacked the candlesticks and plates and cloches and added moss. I am so going to do this. THanks for the inspiration!

  14. I just knew it would be impossible to walk out of there and not be inspired! I love the addition of the little lambs with the moss, so very pretty! I have two and right now as I look at your photos I am a bit embarrassed at their neglect! I must dig into my spring goodies! Thanks for the party! xoxo

  29. I'm with you! I always have to look at vintage garden things. I find them so soulful and interesting. Your display is beautiful, and I love the live plant. They are fussy and take care but seem so worth it. But I always seem to kill everything. :{ Thanks Debra!

  40. What a great idea to pull out little lambs from a nativity set!! I'm trying to think if I can get to mine easily. So sweet with all the moss and ferns. Your post reminds me of the days back in the 70's when terrariums were so popular. I loved seeing rootings and moss grow within misty glass. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. What a beautiful idea to use for Easter. The moss cloches with the lambs, eggs and crosses...a few vintage Easter cards and some crinkled seam binding...and a sprinkle of glitter. Celebrate!
    Thank you for the ideas. Oh...and I love how they are stacked as they can be displayed even in the smallest space.
    Blessings.....Abbey

  53. Love the little lambs with your cloche! So precious...I am sick of bunnies and the lambs remind us of the real meaning of Easter! I think we should start a lamb parade...I think I will have to dig out the Nativity set that I JUST GOT PUT AWAY! :) Thanks for giving us so many wonderful ideas to use in our homes!

  70. Love all the cloches. I'm just starting to acquire a few & love them. Just found one of the lovely bell-shaped ones at Marshall's, but I've decided to save it for the new house. Just a query about your cloche with the African Violet. Is it a real violet & does your cloche act as a terrarium, forming moisture inside? I've been growing African Violets for years & have always found that they do not like moisture on their leaves. Just something to keep in mind -- if the leaves start getting brown spots, that could mean the plant leaves are getting wet. I'm a new follower & would love to have you follow me back.
