"A Lady Prepares to Go Out" -- Cloche

I enjoy making cloche displays... especially when they contain a few family heirlooms. Unfortunately the metal shoe doesn't show up very well in these pictures. It was really my inspiration for my theme. Lace would have been nice however I didn't have any.

The cloche contains:
    * "Pearls" ( water pearls?) from a recent visit to Mexico
    *  A silver "threader" (I hope you will correct me if I am wrong) belonged to my great-grandmother. An "R" is engraved on it for "Rosa".
     * The little Moon and Star toothpick holder is the same pattern of glass that my paternal grandmother collected.
     * The hat pins also belonged to my great-grandmother, Rosa.
     * The little birds were given to me by a dear friend.

Link to these great blogs for some real fun!

Oh dear what a special collection of pretties! I have been enjoying making cloches for different Holidays but a memory one? Great idea! Have a blessed evening, HUGS!

Such a pretty collection, and meaningful, which makes it all the more special.
