I have a new collection....Majolica plates. Bought one on EBay, found two smaller ones very similar to the first so bid low and won them (arrived safely from Europe wrapped in bubble wrap but no box!). Not sure if that was a great idea but like them anyway. Now the fussy part~working with a clock (which was a wedding gift so it has to stay), I hung the three plates but after a few days, I knew it didn't look right (to fussy me). Therefore I fussed and hammered another hole in the wall (hubby hasn't cried out loud yet). Added a framed paper cutting which I love; then changed it for a new framed miniature quilt (also love). Think I will stick with the paper cutting but now feel I need to add more. So the search is on! Any helpful comments?

So life goes on, without taking time to post. Here are photo highlights~a birthday (which I didn't grouse about-loved the bulb garden!); family time; crafts; miniature making; and a great find-still trying to figure out if the tophat is made from a beaver pelt...

I *love* cloches and have them in all sizes, from 1&1/2" tall to 16" tall. It is always fun to show off my cloches as well as my collections. I had forgotten about Marti's Cloche Party but already had a few cloches and domes filled with some of my favorite things. Hopefully you can tell that the chocolates are made of glass (one of my newest collections) and the mouse outside the chocolates is stuffed. I'm also showing a cloche within a cloche. There is a tiny figure dressed as a mouse under the smallest. And I couldn't resist sharing a preview for spring and Easter. I bought the bunny cupcake holder at Pottery Barn and topped it with a sweet cloche topped with a glass butterfly. Enjoy!
