A Candle holder or...

A Cloche!

A couple of weeks ago I went to Laura's (Decor to Adore) for a fabulous party.  We brought items from our home we no longer were using and did a swap.

I got a hanging candle thingy....but I have no place to hang it...but that was ok, because what I really wanted was.....

The glass candle holder.

Upside down it makes a fabulous cloche!


I bought the little stand at HL half price....


Inside is the little Target soap box that was a challenge a couple of years ago!!
It is memories of my parent's love....
This is their wedding day with my Grandpa.  The locket was a gift from my dad to my mom.


 Inside is some little flowers and other decorations.



I just love it....sorry girls, I got a treasure!!

Awww, you are so sweet to miss me! There are so many blogs out there now I really don't think I am missed much! But it is nice to hear, thank you. I love your cloche and I had forgotten all about the box challenge that Lisa hosted! I did 3 of them and sold them all...ha.
How have you been now? Good I pray.
Blessings today

What a very neat idea for a party! I love your cloche filled with keepsakes, it's so pretty.

I noticed your banner, have you decorated for fall already? I want to start early this year, too. Maybe it will help things cool off...90 here today!!

XO,

I just love how you paired it with that stand-it fits perfectly! And of course, your parents wedding day pic is so touching!

Very nice, Ceekay, it helps to be able to think outside the box to think cloche. What a sweet little soap box you created, too. I think you must look a lot like your mother because I was trying to make that lady be you, though the time frame wasn't quite working.

Looks like you were thinking ahead. ;-) I like your new cloche and the sweet vignette.

Terra said...

This sweet collection is pure bliss to see, and now it is safe inside your cloche.
