"Beautiful Glass Garden Domes".....

Sunday, January 24, 2010

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

I love cloches and the variety of things you can put inside. I'm afraid I don't have any on view just now - those litle boys would be too interested!

Heidi, I have always been fascinated by glass cloches/bell jars! When we had our farm I always would have loved to protect some of my plants with them but never got around to buying any. Oh well maybe some day!

Heidi- My dear, dear friend, how you make me smile and bring such joy to my world! Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers. They mean the world to me- as does your friendship. I am taking "baby steps" right now but I will reach the end of this chapter and be ready for the next!;) I wanted you to know that I checked out Views from Thornhill and The Best of Stillmeadow and I cannot wait to read them! Thank you for being such a special part of my life, dear friend... Lori

Just charming, I must get some. I have a beautiful glass jar in my bathroom for all my pretty scented soaps which makes me smile everytime I see it. Today on my Blog I am having a Simple Things day, which has been great fun. HUGS, Catherine xx
