Brownies Under Glass

I see so many cloches in decorating, but I've never had a real cloche myself. I must say that I've been having a little cloche envy.

I still don't own a real cloche, but I do have the glass cake dome that I bought at a garage sale a few weeks ago and a footed silver platter that I bought at a thrift store last year. And together they are cloche-like. Cloche-esque. Cloche-ish.


The problem with using a cake dome as a cloche is that it is hard to photograph what's inside it. The thick glass by the handle was distorting the view all the heck, so I pulled the top off to show you the Kodak Brownie Starlet camera (manufactured 1956), some Kodak film canisters and a Scrabble game sign.


Oh, where you thinking I had this kind of brownies under glass?


I guess that would make more sense, but a moment on the lips and a lifetime on the hips and all that jazz. My hips sure don't need any extra padding.

I added my Kodak Baby Brownie camera, Special Edition (manufactured 1939 - 1954)


and my Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20 (manufactured from 1946 - 1955) to the vignette.


I think these kind of Brownies are the yummiest kind of all.

OK, that sounds all nice for the post and all, but let's be real - that box of brownies will be calling my name all day.

  1. My favorite brownies. We might be sisters. I don't have a real cloche either and use those smaller cheese domes. Great post.

  6. You are so cute and I mean witty cute lovey. Love that brownie camera. I just photographed real red velvet cake under my cake stand and it was the LAST slice. Cause my hips would benefit from the lap band surgery. xoxo, olive

  10. I remember turning the world upside down forty or fifty years ago to find a glass dome to cover some treasure. Sigh.

    Since I'm seventy now, I can tell you that your lovely little collections make me smile and remember when I used them.
