Reuse cloche dome light fixture displays
I started out yesterday looking at Sue Whitney’s Junk Market Style newsletter and found myself staying and looking at all the links. I love Sue and her recycle reuse ideas since I net her in Texas as Marbuger Farm Tent at the Spring Antique Week Event. I got both of her books out at the time, one for Inside and One for Outside Decorating using found objects. Both are incredible books!
I lingered to see another display shown by Lanette Lorsung, a contributing editor who showed several displays of her cloches “ One of My Top Ten – Cloches!
Well, I found myself wanting to show some items I have collected for making these kinds of displays also and next thing I know I am in my hallways cleaning off my wicker cabinet I sometimes use for my photos for my selling sites. I love to collect and recycle vintage lamp globes and fixtures, along with collecting coffee maker top glass globes, natural collections of acorns, moss limbs, the new round moss I found in Texas, and I found the cutest little collection of ceramic shoes at an estate sale last weekend. While In Texas I also got the tiny pewter chairs shown under a cheese dome and a fairy like Christmas scene in a dome I adore with a dragonfly ornament I had found. So, this is a little of what I have been up to this week.
Well, I just rechecked my post and the slide show also includes many photos of my Tiny 1966 Shasta Teardrop Vintage trailer and some Texas photographs I have on my flicker as well.
