I know it is a while till Spring is here, however there is one "old-fashioned garden object" that I can enjoy now, while cold temperatures & winter weather still threaten!.... That object is the "Beautiful Glass Garden Dome"!.....Don't you just adore these charming "choches"!
Used originally as "little greenhouses" to protect tiny seedlings.....today's "domes" come in a million shapes & sizes & are used by most of us decoratively!....You can place just about anything you would like to spotlight under a dome....Small flower arrangements, lovely old Christmas balls, or as the photo above shows, a darling collection of French linens, all neatly folded & stacked in the dome's glass tower!
And of course domes are certainly still used for various tasks in the garden & greenhouse!....How pretty are these!....Miniature gardens under glass!......
I find decorating with useful items, is a wonderful way to adding interest to our interiors!....Glass domes can be re-purposed from a utilitarian garden object to an imaginative & enchanting decoration!....I encourage you to go out & purchase a couple for yourself!....You will constantly be thinking up new & darling uses for your own glass domes!!.......Gotta run!... I'm off to place a stack of tiny antique garden books under mine own!...Happy decorating!......Heidi XO
