Remember back in May when I went to visit Michael at his B&B? Well during one of our late night, sangria-soaked nights on the porch, we found one particular idea awfully hysterical (you know how it goes). The idea was to Put a Cloche On It! We must have been discussing things like blogger and design trends and the ubiquitous Put a Bird On It and when we realized our mutual love for cloches and Put a Cloche On It was born. Cute stack of vintage books? Make it cuter and put a cloche on it! A trio of fancy candles? It’ll be fancier under a cloche! You get the idea. Everything looks better under a cloche.
Now, if you’re wondering what a cloche is, and I know some of you are, it’s a glass dome or bell jar. You can find them everywhere from antique stores to HomeGoods to the shelf of your thrift store, disguised as a cheese plate dome. They’re everywhere. So if you’re not in on the cloche game, there really is nothing stopping you. You want cute things to look cuter, right? Of course, you do.
So here’s what we’re doing…or at least what I remember from our drunken conversations. Let’s make Put a Cloche on It a thing. Or #PACOI if you’re in on the Instagram or Twitter game. Go round up a cloche, pop it on something cute and show us all how much cuter your life now is. Michael and I are gonna have a link up on Tuesday 12/18 so make sure you get it done this weekend and come back to show everyone.
Now let me show you what I Put a Cloche on…
The milk and cookies set I DIY’d last week looks even better under a cloche and is now safe from toddler grabby hands! You guys know my penchant for all things cute wrapping related, so the thought of hiding my ribbons and such away sort of disappointed me. So I rounded them up and covered them with a cloche. It looks cute plus they’re protected from both toddler hands and sneaky cats.
Now if you didn’t believe me when I said that everything, absolutely everything, looks better under a cloche, then I present to you….
Bills under a cloche. They won’t go away but they’ll look fantastic while they wait to be paid.
Annnnnd matchbox cars under a cloche. I mean, they’re already taking over my house, I might as well enjoy them, right?
Okay, so you got it? Next week, bring your pretty things under a cloche, bring your funny things under a cloche, bring anything under a cloche. And tag the shit out of it #PACOI. It’ll be fun, I promise.
