My cloche.

I mentioned how my friend did such a great job on her cloche. So I took out the Easter eggs I made out of mine and tried to do another display. You know, it isn't as easy as it looks! I tried several items but they tend to be too wide for the glass cover.

Anyways, I know Deena from Can I Be Pretty in Pink? collects children's shoes. The white shoes are my husbands and the yellow are mine. The rattle was mine also. I put a miniature Bible in there also. I am so thrilled that both our mother's thought to save our shoes!

What a clever idea. I always thought cloches were for plants. They look great with memorbilia inside of them. You are lucky to have both pair of shoes.

Very pretty! I had a cloche and sold it in an antiques store recently. Hmmmmm, I could copy using a cake plate maybe.

Great Show and Tell.

I hope that you are having a lovely weekend.

Oh, how special! I didn't know you had hubby's shoes. I wish I had mine. I love the cloche. Wish I had one.

Hi ceekay,
So wonderful to meet you. I so enjoyed my visit here to your lovely blog. I love how you displayed your baby shoes in the cloche. You are so right about getting items to fit within the base. It is a challange, but you did a very creative display and what a sweet memory! I look forward to returning often and I am adding you to my favorites!
Glad you are having great days now, God is so good!!
