glass cloche vignette ~ late summer

I’m working on a few projects over here, but they are all mid stream.
I’m hoping to share soon.
In the meantime I thought I would share a late summer vignette I threw together.
Glass cloche summer
Summer is flying by and back to school chatter is starting to fill my brain.
My sea shells and sea coral and other summer touches felt old all of a sudden and I wanted a bit of a change.

Nothing crazy because I’m holding on to summer as long as I can.
But something fresh.
Glass cloche summer 1
Green is my go to color so I thought I would pair up some of my green accents {boxwood, moss, etc.} with my collection of Wedgwood green Jasperware.
I started collecting the jasperware years ago and I love my collection but I don’t hunt for it like I use to nor have I picked up a new piece in a long time.

Don’t get me wrong, if I were to find one at a great price, I’d snatch it up immediately.
Unfortunately the only pieces that elude me are urns and compotes and it’s simply the price point that has held me back.

Anyway, I have this collection that sometimes sits on my bookcase or sometimes on my antique secretary so I thought it would be fun to show them under glass.
I don’t do this type of elaborate decorating generally only when I’m entertaining or for the holidays, but why not?

It’s not like I don’t have anything better to do {insert the eye roll & giggle here}.
I just don’t know what to do with this collection exactly.  I love it & I don’t necessarily want to get rid of it, but it’s not an “active” collection if you will.
Glass cloche summer 7
You know the kind that consumes us, and makes us giddy when we find a new piece, at a great price, and makes us smile every time,
every.single.time.
We look at it, and makes our heart race when we see it in a magazine or blog or anywhere for that matter.

The last piece I added was this odd ball pitcher with the color palette reversed.  AND it’s actually not Wedgwood.
What gave it away?
No marking on the bottom and the inside is glazed.  I found it at a local thrift store & I just loved how it added a different look to the same look.

Do you have anything you’ve collected but has lost some of it’s excitement in your book?

What do you do with it?

  1. You have a beautiful collection of wedgwood green jasperware, it is so pretty! I’ve collected Occupied Japan figurines for years, but don’t really need more, so these days I usually pass them by.
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!
    Blessings,
    Cindy

  2. Putting things under glass take them to a new level! They are not always the easiest to photograph, but certainly eye catching. I love your collection! The reversed pitcher really caught my eye. I have a red glass collection and it is housed in a cabinet in my living room. I don’t pick up anymore because my cabinet is full and it too can be pricey. But a couple weeks ago I found 5 random pieces for $1 ea. I could not bring them home, and yes; I made them fit. I loved it when I found my first piece 7 years ago. I don’t think I’ll part with it, but now it’s jadite that makes my heart soar! lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
    Jann

I love hearing from you!
