Glass Class

One of my favorite things to look for are unique glass containers or jars and especially cloche's. Cloches were originally used on farms in Europe to protect seedling plants from dying in a frost. Not are they still good for their original use, but they are great for using in your everyday decor!

The great thing about using glass in your decor is that it is so versatile. In the summer you can add a collection of shells that you gathered on the beach, in the fall you can make a display of school photos or leaves, winter you can use holiday decor, and spring you can display sprawling greenery or fresh blossoms. In one of my cloche's I keep a birds nest almost year round, but on Halloween I replace it with bloody eyeballs, or at Christmas a small Christmas tree.
