Fabulous Finds~Cloche Displays

I was quite surprised to find these wonderful antique alabaster
statues at an estate sale in my neighborhood for only 150.00 for
the pair! Aren't they gorgeous? They display so lovely, don't you think?
Standing so elegantly and confident on her pedestal!

This gorgeous lady statue weighs a ton...such wonderful
patina and detail!

I just fell in love with this large antique black & white picture!
The frame has such nice detail that you can hardly see, but trust
me, it's gorgeous! Look closely at this picture and you can see a
lovely statue in the background! A steal for only 5.00!
The same wonderful lady that I bought the statues from,
had a lot of old things that were her mother's. Old baby shoes,
lots of antique lace, and buttons, I knew the perfect place to display
it all, in my old glass jars that I posted about a couple of weeks ago!
I hope you are enjoying the pictures so far... I'm not quite done yet!
I thought you may want to hear this...T.J Maxx has some of the cutest
vintage style christmas decor that you have ever seen! They are made
of paper mache, and everything blends in perfectly with your own
vintage treasures!! Look how cute this snowman looks under a cloche!!
This cloche, I have displayed an antique porcelain
bust found for only 10.00 Isn't she lovely!
With most cloche displays, I think vintage
wedding cake toppers look their best under glass
Wouldn't you agree?
Not only cake toppers, I do believe trophys look wonderful
as well under a cloche! This little trophy needed a little boost, so
I added a porcelain pedestal!
One of my favorite cloche displays....I love how this cloche
looks on this silver tray, notice the etching on the glass? I
just think it is beautiful! Well, as always, I hope you have enjoyed
the pictures! I love to read blogs with lots of inspiring photos! I hope
I have inspired some of you today! Have a wonderful blessed day!

Oh my goodness....Oh so gorgeous!
I love your display of buttons and laces in your jars! I noticed the framed picture of the little girl in a bonnet with her hands in her lap - I found a small one - 5 x 7 at a local flea market a couple of months ago - I just adore her! I'll have to do any upcoming post where I show her off too!
