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.
