Hi everybody.

I told you about my new cloche last night, that I had gotten as a gift.  Well today, I figured out how to embellish it and where to place it.

The first thing I did was to use the cloche as a template and traced it on some fabric I had with French script on it.  I then cut it out so that it fit nicely on the base.  this gives a nice backdrop for what I placed under the cloche.

I looked about my collection of little items and I remembered I has several old iron fence finials.  One I really like, fit very nicely under the cloche and is a great compliment to the fabric.

Once I had the look I wanted, I decided to add this to the top of some old books I keep on my living room coffee table.  This makes for a nice complement to the other vignette that is on this table.

I’m really happy on how this all turned out and will make for a nice conversation piece as well as a treasured gift from a very good person.
