Valentine Cloche

I put this Valentine Cloche together to put on the
Front Hall Buffet..thought I'd share it with you.

I've had this little cherub for ages. It usualy sits nestled out among family photos...The rose flower heart was a gift from DD yrs ago - the Vintage Postcard is part of a collection I have..and the pearls I've had for ages.

This weekend I moved it to a small buffet in the Dining Room...

Hope you all had a nice Valentine's Day..
Thanks for looking.

jane...that cloche is very lovely ...the cherub planter (?) is cute & the pearls compliment nicely w/gorgeous plate & doily. Love the silver pitcher w/roses, too...nice buffet combo.

Your Val dinner sounds good! DH & I had errands today so we ate at Longhorn Steakhouse, a fairly new place, nearby...it was very good & being retired we could eat early afternoon before the supper rush!

Vintage valentine is sweet, too. TFS! Jeanne S.

Jane, beautiful cloche! I was browsing last night trying to find your table that was posted on the web with no luck. As I went through some of your posts, I thought oh no, I'm missing all of Jane's neat decorations this year.

So glad you came through with flying colors again!!! I have DF's expensive pearls she gave me and this made me think of them seeing yours. I will save this pic so I can work on one similar to show her. So Sweet. Thanks...

Thanks everyone..
Jeanne..sounds like you had a yummy dinner yourself!
I'd take a steak dinner over waffles any day...lol

Marylee..The evening was nice...however, I've been fighting another cold..(what else is new)and since I promised Waffles..I didn't want to let them down. Actually it helped me to focus on something other than my cold.

Punk..so glad this reminded you of your DF's pearls.
Try to wear them every now then. Don't let them just sit. I wore jewelry Every day when I worked and even in High School and miss that now.
I know you'll find many pretty ways for them in Vignettes. I'm thinking of another with a white Tea Set I bought last Summer.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you do. Hope it's soon.

NanaK...seems like we're ALL falling for Cherubs! They're so irresistible. Hope you can share some of yours with us.

I'm with Marlene, I really need to buy a cloche too.

The white plate you used under your cloche really sets it off nicely and isn't that a doily inside the cloche? How did you get the vintage card to stay put? The little rose heart and the pearls falling from the cherubs hands all look so nice together. I like the vignette with it next to the roses--very pretty. Luvs

I absolutely LOVE how you decorated the cloche!

Thanks Ladies...

Marlene.. I had been craving for a cloche too..and last Winter found two that were attached to a wood base with a bird's nest in ea..and at a fraction of the cost I was seeing them for. DH seperated the base from the glass cloche and 'Voila'! 2 for the price of 1 !!

Luvs...yes I put a doily inside on the plate and the card is propped up on a small glass votive..I then rolled tape in front of the card at the bottom, and attached it to the rose heart to keep it in place.

Karen...thank you...I'm glad you like the way it turned out.
I figured I couldn't go too wrong putting cherubs & roses together and then adding pearls ! lol
