I know I'm not the boss here, but I thought it might be nice to start a long-running apothecary jar/cloche post that everyone could add to once in a while. Every shape, every size, every theme is encouraged. I know you apothecary and cloche owners are out there. Share with us all! Just post your pics, or even better, post pics with accompanying explanations. Post as centerpieces or post as "free standing" vignettes.
Ready, set, go!

Here are two February themes.

Those are both so cute! I've never done one of these but now you've gotten me thinking . . . .

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Hurray! I love this idea... I have two small..empty... jars. So I'd love to see everyone else's. OA just love yours.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

I'm so loving my cloche that I got at the end of the year.
It rates right up there with the stacked plates as Super Fun to decorate with! So far I've done mine for Christmas and now for Valentines. (you'll notice the same little bunny used...that was a special gift from my darling 8yr old "adopted" niece. She found him in a TS and paid with her own dollar for him to give me for Christmas. She was so delighted I put him in the cloche, that I told her I was going to leave him there and decorate different ways with him. Now she can't wait to see what is next for her bunny).

I went to Michaels the other day and got the little container of "grass", the two picks to put in it, and a sparkly heart candle ring to sit the grass in. I had the Cherub from GW last year.

Great idea for a thread, Betty.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Oh Karen...I just love both your displays in the Cloche jar.
How sweet that your neice bought that little bunny for you. That makes him extra special. He fits in both your displays perfectly. You added just the right touches to each one, and I like their simplicity. I don't think I would tire looking at either one..if left out permanently.. >> However, it must be such fun setting up a new one each time.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

That's how I felt too Jane, I loved the Xmas one and didn't really want to pack it away. But after I got the Val stuff set up, I'm just as happy. Sure hope St Pat's and Easter go as well. I'd wanted a cloche for SO long after seeing the wonderful ones on this Forum, and now I have mine, its such a joy to play with. This is one of Life's little pleasures that just makes me really happy!
As for my adopted niece, Olivia, she is super special. I'm an only child so never got to be an aunt to anyone. Then I became friends with a family who has 2 small children that I just fell in love with. Ben is only two yrs old, but since Olivia's 8, I asked her if I could be her adopted Aunt. So finally, over 60, I have a niece and nephew. For Xmas 07 and my birthday last year, she also found me bunnies at TS or yard sales. She saves her money and her Dad takes her 'shopping' for me. Isn't that precious? And boy, does she find me some really great little bunnies too!!
Unfortunately they live in WA, so its an online friendship, but its one deep in my heart. I love this family dearly.
I met them on Garden Junk a few years ago.
I've sure been blessed by my two Forums with terrific people and friendships.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Oh Karen, so I am no longer cursed for pointing you to the cloche!! :)
Both are very cute!

I was inspired by OA's ground hog so I picked this up, but he gets squished in my cloche, which is the same as yours and OA'S

I think it's an auk!

You celebrate Auk day right?


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Kathleen, I BLESS you for pointing me in right direction!
That squished groundhog is a hoot. Maybe not one of your best decorating ideas? LOL.

I keep checking for other photos on this thread...come on gals and JIM, post those pix!
Where the heck is Jim, and Judith, anyway? I miss you both a lot !!

hugs, Karen


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen...I love the story about your adopted neice. That's so sweet. I'm so happy that you 'found' each other. As special as she is for you..I'm sure this little girl just loves the fact that you've entered her life too. It seems that way, with her thinking of you on her TS outings..What great memories for her to cherish one day.

Kathleen...I agree with Karen..that squished ground hog is a Hoot!! .. He truly looks like he's dying to get out and see his shadow... poor fellow !! lol

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen - that is such a sweet story about your 'adopted' niece. I agree with Jane - what wonderful memories she can carry with her into her adult life.

I need to dig around some of my mothers boxes - I know there was a rather nice cloche in there with a wooden base - it was suppose to cover a doll but I love the idea of having one item and then building different vignettes around it -

OA thanks for the thread and Karen thanks for the uplifting story.......

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen what a wonderful story. Children are soo easy to please. They get excited over the small things in life..she is blessed to have you as her family!!

I am soo ready for spring. Here is a small ts jar that I filled with sand from Daytona beach with some small shells and a petrified seahorse we found on Longboat Key beach probably twenty years ago. I need to add a ribbon or something to the top...it was hard to get a picture of it...
apothacary jar with sand from Daytona beach and a petrified sea horse from Longboat Key beach

Last summer I saw this antique canning jar at a friend of ours that lives down the road and made a remark how I had been looking for jars to start a collection of sand from all the beaches we go to (seen it in a mag.) The next time we were there she handed it to me!! They have addopted us... here it is with sand from Clearwater beach...

Would love to find some more like it. It doesn't really qualify for this thread but thought you might get a kick out of it.


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen, that's a lovely story! Lucky Olivia too!

And I love how you made that litte scape inside the dome...very clever gal!


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen,
That's a great story. How nice that your special niece gets to feel what it's like to give something special to someone. So many children don't experience that. They only receive gifts. I don't mean they are spoiled, it's just that they never feel the joy of looking for a special gift and spending their money to make someone else happy. A person has to actually do that once in a while (not have Mom go out and get the gift right before the party) to really understand the joy of giving. I can just imagine her face when she finds out you loved her gift so much that you are using it all the time.

Love ALL the jar arrangements so far. Keep them coming.


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

OA asked me to repost my pic with the jar on this post so here it is. I don't consider this very creative, just used what I had on hand that was red! I'll check my Photobucket to see if I have other pics of it. Luvs

I don't even own anything remotely similar to a cloche . . . yet anyway, but I really do like seeing all your creativity with yours!
Kathleen, you are too funny! That squished bird is priceless. What a cute face!

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Since the Cloches and Jars rank right up there with Stacked Plates (in the book of Karen anyway, LOL), I made an album for them too. I also went thru our other Inspiration photos and copied the jars and cloches from them. But if any of you haven't posted pix of some you've decorated, please do so I can add them to our newest album.

Oh..Kathleen, should I put your squished bird in the album as how NOT to decorate a cloche, or perhaps a "conversation starter cloche"? LOL

hugs, Karen

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen, I really enjoyed looking at the cloches in the album. They are very inspiring. I don't have one, but now I definitely will be considering it. They seem to be a fun project, for all sorts of occasions.
I agree, Kathleen's should be used as a 'Not To Lesson 101'.
LOL.. sorry Kathleen, I couldn't resist.

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Kathleen gave me an idea....I wonder if Princess Posie will fit in a jar???...sometimes I feel like finding out!!


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen,
Thanks so much. To be honest, I thought of asking you to do this from the beginning, but didn't have the nerve! An album is so much more permanent than the post.
Here's another picture for the album.
OA
P.S. Kathleen, I'm shocked. You "Auk" to be shocked too. Just because he was a little cramped in there is no reason to give you such a hard time.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Purplemoon, I LOVE your valentine cloche. Your flair for decorating has really inspired me. Here are my cloches - last year's valentines and this year's too. And the one I did for halloween. I neglected to take a picture of the one I did for Christmas.



 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen, I'm a longtime lurker who just registered yesterday.

It's amazing that you compose albums for our use!!!


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Say, everyone, look at the picture Bright199 posted again. What do you think the bases are made of? At first I thought they were thick, marble-like bases. Then I got the idea that maybe they were made of something that is covered with batting and fabric. What do you think?

Jean G, Karen already placed your second picture in the album. She's sure on top of things, isn't she!
That display really caught my eye when I first saw it, and I like it even more now that I can see an enlarged picture. Who was the original owner of the brooch?


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

OA, I think those bases are fabric covered too. It all is so 'old' and vintage look and very appealing. Thanks for sharing this with us, Bright.

And by the way, Everyone, please never hesitate to ask me to do something regarding any of our albums. I do these for all of you and if you have ideas or suggestions, then definitely let me know. I've said it before, these are YOUR albums.

Jeane, thanks for posting more pix. I did already have your Victorian one, I fell in love with that when you first posted it. And your adorable little one with his amazing curls in that picture.

Betty, welcome out of Lurkdom. Now you must stay out and play with us. LOL. You'll have more fun joining in too!

Question now for Everyone. Do you want photos of jars or glass vases that aren't "technically" cloches and apothecary jars, but used in the same way added to the album....or do you want me to keep it for just the two items? I have a Misc album for things that don't quite fit other albums. But I'll leave it up to the majority about this question.

hugs, Karen


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Hi, the original owner was my grandmother. But I don't think it is really old...not what I would consider old. I think maybe the brooch is 50 years old if I had to guess, but it would have been very inexpensive costume jewelry back then.


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen,
I vote for all glass shapes and sizes to be put in one place.

Jeane, I love vintage jewelry. Most costume jewelry seems to broadcast the era in which it was created. I just love your piece.

OA


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen, great idea on a special album for these. I think the picture Bright posted should go in there for sure--very creative use of glass containers. ;o) Luvs


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Yes, Bright's photo definitely is a keeper, tho I think the big jar is a cloche anyway. I figure any jar or vase that does double-duty and can be decorated same as the real cloches or apothecary jars, probably should be saved for Inspiration. All of us love looking at any and all pix anyway, LOL.

By the way, I've tried to post new messages on GJ and here and I can't do it. Wonder if anyone else having a problem with that? Maybe too many new messages being posted on Garden Web tonight? Weird.

hugs, Karen


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

You have all made my heart go pitty-pat. I have to invest in a jar or a cloche (also need some of those stacking plates, and several sets of dishes, and a place to store everything.

You have all done such clever and beautiful things. You are so inspiring. - Gail


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Gail..get the jar, the cloche, the stacked plates, some dishes, but don't worry about the storage space. You'll never have enough if you hang around here long!! LOL. But you will be in very good company, who will commiserate with you about needing more of it.

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Hey, Karen, there are sure times when I WISH I still had a car with a trunk like the one who shall remain nameless. With an suv, there's not much hiding space. I just have to take it out, stash it behind something in the garage and then bring it in later if I really want to hide it from the Dish Police! LOL

Gail, trust me, you will find SOMEWHERE to stash your treasures once you have them. Linen closets, under beds, top of cabinets, etc. You'll even find yourself thinking about keeping less food in the pantry so you can stash dishes and treasures in there! LOL

How nice to see this bumped up. Candy I love your Fall vignette. Will have to add it to our cloche album.

For anyone shopping for apothecary jars and cloches, I personally love the ones at Sav On Crafts. I got that tall (22 inch) one recently, and have ordered one for my DD a Christmas gift. I'm tempted to get one of the other jars now. They have so darn many pretty ones and variety of sizes. Prices are great there I think.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Karen, I could not believe the low prices of the apothecary jars and other decorative bowls that Save-on-Crafts.com has! They have almost everything we need for decorating for pennies!

Today I was at Walmart and bought a very nice and large Trifle bowl for only $5.00. I cannot wait to figure out what to put in it for Christmas and other seasons. Besides a good Banana Pudding. lol


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

So nice to see this old thread return! I'd missed it last year and I love apothecary jars and cloches. I still don't have enough but depend on finding them at yard sales. I do drool over a large apothecary at a local gift shop - it's *only* about $80.

I've posted this pic before but it's one of my favs. Small urn with glass fishing float and shells covered with a glass *thing* that's not really a cloche but works.

shells

At Halloween I used it to cover the crystal skull as my cat always tries to eat the raffia - in fact I think you might see cat teeth marks in it if you look!

After tweaking I put a little pumpkin and a wheat spray in it.

At Easter I put pastel colored M&M's in an apothecary jar and used a covered glass pedestal cake plate for a vignette.

Last spring I used a cheese dome to display seed packets.

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

BORE? Are you kidding? LOL. I love seeing what you did, LG. Guess I better get busy and add yours to our Cloche album!

I've been noticing on some of the blogs how the gals make cloches and hurricanes and apothecary jsrs from glass pieces found at Dollar Tree! I did some hurricanes, and also made myself a large and two small pedestal cake domes.
From Goodwill finds and Dollar Tree. DT sure has nice, heavy glass, short candleholders that make the perfect bases for any of these things!

hugs, Karen


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

I am lovin' this post, too, LG! ...especially because I've not seen some of these...& also that it's a good reminder to visit the "Cloche and Jar Album" that PM adds to for us! Got some good ideas from that album. And recently I found a small cake pedestal at a TS which I will be using for Christmas/Winter decor.

I don't have any cloches but did buy a large cake pedestal early this yr & used it at Easter:

Spring Cake Pedestal Cover View 3.10

I also used this "jar" one with white & pearl buttons for Valentine decor:

Val Decor Red Napkins Silverware rings, buttons 1.10

And for July, I tried the cake pedestal again...with candle, stars & little patriotic doll:

RWB Cake Dome 6.10

I've been eye-ing the "cloches" at HLobby for some time...they run 50% off alot (from retail price) so they are still quite a bit... we shall how the prices do for the holidays. Thanks OA for starting this thread last yr & glad to see it bumped up. Jeanne S.


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Don't forget you can make cloches out of various things found at the goodwill...my favorite one is made from a glass bowl that was originally suspended in a brass rack. The "brass" rack was rusty and yukky and went in the trash, the bowl was turned upside down and a glass cabinet knob glued to the bottom....voila a wide biggish cloche!! Or you can use the glass thingy off an anniversary type clock. Lots of glass candle holders make good small/tiny cloches....especially the ones designed to suspend in a metal ring type holder. They already have a knob on the bottom, that becomes the top when you turn them upside down :^)
Glass flower pot shaped thingys do well with a knob glued on the bottom. (even painted wooden knobs work well) I have also made cloches using the kind of hurricane glasses that have a wide top and a narrow opening in the bottom that fits into a brass candle holder. Just turn them upside down and glue on a glass knob (door or cabinet depending on the size of the hurricane).


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

All these projects are beautiful and so creative. Quick! I need to find a flat surface in my home that is not already filled...(not an easy task) so I can try my hand at this type of decorating.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Welcome Marylee...if all your surfaces are filled, it sure sounds like you belong here with the rest of us. And you'll find room, somehow. LOL.

RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

I'm glad I saw this thread! I have a couple, but they're up in the attic during a kitchen renovation. But a few months back I was in a architectural salvage store and they had what looked like an ENORMOUS cloche. It's probably 15-18" across at the base. I asked the price and the lady told me that it was a light fixture, but it broke and only the glass and outer band was left, and it was $5. I snatched it up and hoped to make a cloche out of it. It's up in the attic as well, but I'll snap a pic soon and post it, maybe you all can help me figure out what to do with it! Since it was made to be hung (open end up) I wasn't sure if the glass could support it's weight being kept opening down. Any ideas?

Here's a link to a similar lighting fixture, my glass piece is much prettier, more of a bell shape. It does not have a finial ending at the bottom, it's an open end (maybe 2" opening) that I figured I could disguise with a wooden finial or something.

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Nails,
Maybe you can keep your eye out for an expensive glass paper weight for the finial. But maybe you don't need one. Here's a big one I'd like to buy from Restoration Hardware. It doesn't have to top-knot. It's 25 inches across and is $600. As soon as I win the lottery, I'm going to get it. I think you got a bit of a bargain, don't you think? Here's a picture of it on a table that appears to be in King Henry Size dining hall.

Blah ha ha!


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Cantgetmynailsclean, welcome to the forum and you got a real deal on that hunk-a-glass! I don't see why it wouldn't work as a cloche as most glass that size is made thick enough to stand on the open part. If you look at my first pic above it also was made for another purpose. It's supposed to go in a cast iron base to be used as a large candleholder. I have the base as well (both for $5) and use it with a plant pot in my garden. The glass part doesn't have a knob and I've thot of gluing on a glass dresser knob (altho I hoard them carefully as like to use them in various ways). You're idea of using a wood knob would work also.

OA, love that DR, especially the trees! When I win the lottery and have staff I'll instruct them to make some just like that! ;-D


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Thanks, Luckygal. Boy, you got a heck of a deal as well!

I had to go up to the attic to get the kids gloves today and saw the glass piece and almost brought it down. But I need to come up with a spot for it first! Small house and 2 kids (plus 4 neighbor kids who are always here!) means I have to think carefully before I put it out! I can't think of any spot where it could just stay and not have to be moved. I was thinking of hanging it, open end up, because I do have the metal ring it came with, and putting a big white candle and some greenery and wreath pics around it for the holiday season.


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

I have never had any real "cloche" but after seeing this post I decided I needed some. :) Of course I have no idea what I will put in them! I thought this was a decent deal and wanted to share.

If you put in the code welcome you save an additional 10% off the original price so the set of three are $24.95

Dizzy looking at all this. Good dizzy. Another manageable way to change it up for each holiday. I don't have any cloches, but I love the old jars and cake covers people used. I'll be looking in GW, and consignment shops for some. The old jars, I have.
This is so much fun.

Jeanne, Karen, OA, Luvs, Jane, Kathleen, are you Listening???lol If so what do you think about this? I think it would be great and if I have some extra time I may work on some this weekend.

 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Punk,
I love that idea. Picture heavy threads take so long to scroll through. We could post a link here for others who haven't had a chance to look through.
I'll let one of the "old timers" (who are much younger than I, just here longer) decide. But I do like the idea. This whole cloche thing has become a favorite. I just found an old candy jar, from an apothecary store and did the whole snowman, snow thing. Need my sons to put them on my computer so I can post. Maybe there will be a new thread by then.
Nancy


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Great Idea Ladies..
Just get it started and I'm on it!
Nancy I like your reference to "old timers" (who are much younger than I, just here longer) >> Smart Gal!!

jane


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

For pictures of cloches without all our comments, nothing beats the inspiration albums Karen made for us.

The problem with the posts on here is that there is no way to keep them from moving on down the line and eventually dropping off, and like Nancy said, when the posts get pic heavy it takes a long time to scroll through them each time to see new additions or comments.

I think we determined that the maximum additions/comments on a post is 150--so yes, a post as popular as cloches could get pretty long.

Hopefully, Karen has captured some of the prettiest ideas from this post already, so I say go ahead and start a new one for 2011--and when it gets too long, we can always do a part 2, right? ;o)

Luvs


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

Yes, definitely. This one is getting too long.
Karen will probably move any of the recently posted pictures to the album she created for cloches.

But we should definitely start a new one for 2011


 o
RE: Apothecary Jar/Cloche Pics

New thread started for 2011.
