Valentine's Day Cloche

I'm a bit more "into" Valentine's Day decorating this year and I have been having so much fun with reds and pinks and hearts and cherubs! I also wanted to use my cloche as part of my decor for Valentine's Day.

As I was rummaging through my Valentine's day bin I came across one of 
my favorite ceramic pieces of two cherubs expressing their love.

It was a gift long ago from a dear friend and is actually one of a pair, 
but only one would fit into the cloche.

I do have to tell you, the base of the cloche fell and shattered into a kazillion pieces a few months ago when I was putting it away.  
Luck would have it that the bottom of a cheese plate, painted white, works perfectly! Whew!

I printed out, onto some card stock, an image from The Graphics Fairy  
and using double sided tape, attached it inside the glass behind the sweet little angels.

Lilies of the Valley were my mother's favorite flower. 
I haven't seen them in real life since we moved to Colorado over 40 years ago. 
But, when I get a whiff of them, I am transported back in time.

  7. So sweet and romantic, Kathe! I may steal your idea about the cheese plate - my large cloche did not come with a base, which makes it difficult to use sometimes. Happy Valentine's Day!

    What a lovely figurine beneath your cloche, dear one!
    I adore the graphic tha you've placed behind the figurine for a backdrop!
    Lily of the Valley was in my MoMa's Wedding Bouquet. I try to grow it here on the Prairie...but no luck!
