So, a month or so ago I found several items on a trip to a local thrift store that I thought would make great cloches. All of the items I found were candle accessories. And super cheap about a quarter a piece.
Ok, I have really been wanting to display old class rings in a creative way. Don't they look cute under this little cloche?
I thought I would include some of my apothacary jars today also. I love changing the display in my apothacary jars with the seasons. I showed you a little bit of that in this post. The jars are still decorated for summer with sand and shells. I mean lets face it here in Texas we're still in the throws of summer, but next it'll be Halloween. Ooo, I'm excited about that.

Each of these 3 pieces are intended for candles.
I simply placed the knobs on top and secured them with a little hot glue so that I could easily change them out later if I wanted to.
Or if I could ever figure out how to get the brass piece off the bottom of the door knobs. It looks ok. I'd rather have all clear glass though.
Thanks for stopping by. BTW, I'm adding this to The Shabby Chic Cottage for transformation Thursday.

The collection that I want to talk about today is my Fleur-di-lis. I can't explain what it is that draws me to them except their graphic quality, a graphic representation of of a lily. Maybe it's my memory of growing up visiting New Orleans. A city that I found sophisticated and exotic. Maybe my love of all things French influences their draw on me. What ever it is I find them hard to resist when I find them. They adorn my walls.

Of course it was also back to school for the kids and back to work for me. It's gonna be an interesting year. Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post for the Rooster party. I really appreciated it. I was so excited that ya'll liked my poultry friends. I'm sorry I haven't responded to ya'll yet. I'm going to try to get to those this weekend.
Hope everyone had a good start to the school year, and I hope you have a good weekend.
