Spring in a Cloche

Today I thought I would bring you another little touch of Spring.
I don't know about you but I am needing it.
This week is Spring break for the kiddos 
Mother Nature has not cooperated at all.
On Sunday they were swimming in the pool 
 on Monday the rain and the cold came.
Now it's so chilly you have to wear a jacket outside 
swimming is out of the question.
So, I decided to make a little Spring in my cloche to help us
remember it is - in fact, still Spring

Spring in a Cloche - glass cloche with bluebird and faux flower vignette

Just a simple little display that brings Spring back
on this gloomy, chilly and rainy day.
This is a very simple little project that takes only a few minutes.

The cloche is one I got at a thrift store last fall for $2.
(I love changing the little displays in it regularly.)
I just put some craft store pebbles on the plate first.

Spring in a Cloche - moss covered styrofoam with faux dogwood in a thrifted cloche

Then I covered a piece of Styrofoam with some moss
stuck a couple of faux Spring dogwood twigs in it.
Placed that on top of the pebbles.

Added one of the little birds I got at Cracker Barrel for $.99
it was done.
A cute little bit of Spring to get rid of the rainy gloom of the day.
I know that Mother Nature has not been kind to most of the country 
a lot of you are now covered in snow again.
We had lots of fun outdoor activities planned for this week 
with all the rain, wind and chilly temps have been forced to indoor fun.
I am just hoping that the rain forcast for the weekend doesn't make it here.
So, how about you ?
What are you doing to keep Spring alive in your home?

  1. I love your display Cathy! And goodness the weather is also crazy here, one minute it's 80 degrees and the next it's like 40 degrees here in Atlanta. I can't wait until it stays warm!

  2. I really like this cloche...or maybe I am just a sucker for blue birds...either way it is beautiful. :)

  3. Aah! That is so cute! Very Springy...unlike this crazy weather! ;)

  4. So pretty. I love cloches, and your display makes me really want to find one!

  5. I love this idea, especially changing it up periodically!!! Hope the weather gets better so your kids can enjoy spring break.

  6. This is pretty. I specially like that blooming branch. Set-up is so harmony.

  14. Cathy creating displays in my cloches is my favorite thing to do. Love this touch of Spring! Sprinkling the pebbles was a great idea. Just so happens I have a bag of them on hand. Will have to use them in mine sometime. We had gorgeous weather for a while but yesterday had snow. Suppose to be warm and nice for the rest of the week. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  15. Love cloches, Cathy - this looks wonderful! I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
