Joe and Cloches


Joe and I converged on the lighting section of the Habitat For Humanity Re-Store at about the same time and then we saw the pendant light.
 
Joe asked, "Could it work as a cloche?"

I replied, smiling, "definitely."

Joe is about eighty-eight kinds of wonderful at any given moment.
 &
He "gets" cloches.
 
 
The buffet is dressed for fall in white pumpkins.


The soup tureen is a recent thrifty find and was made in Italy.


The bell shape of the cloche works for us and our vintage cake stand.


Wonky little white pumpkins are so cute and they last a very long time (more about that later).

A big thank you to my aunt and uncle for treating me to fish, grits, and hushpuppies on Friday night.
It was lovely to spend time with you and it means so much to me that you read and enjoy this blog.

Linking to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.


may joy and peace surround you always

  5. I think that light globe is an amazing cloche! It really looks more expensive and almost vintage with the gold piece on top. You're lucky to have a husband who looks for things you would like.

    Ask your sweet aunt & uncle if they deliver to the Midwest. Dinner sounds divine!
