After a few hours, and with some progress, I tired of that task and went back to the computer, only to be distracted by the "lure of the blog". I love to see what other people are up to, what projects they have going on, and am constantly inspired by the creativity I see. I swear some of these gals don't sleep at night! And I thought I was a hard worker...
I stumbled upon a blog event on a blog called "A Stroll Thru Life". I don't do a lot of blog events - just can't seem to find the time. But having just moved a cloche to a new storage spot a few minutes earlier, I decided I'd take a bit of a break and compose a few scenarios with things I had here in the studio - a little playtime, well-earned. Some of what I've utilized here are found in my two Etsy shops. (www.thewellseasonednest.etsy.com and www.nestibles.etsy.com)
A little background, from Merriam-Webster:
Definition of CLOCHE
: a woman's close-fitting hat usually with deep rounded crown and narrow brim
Origin of CLOCHE
French, literally, bell, from Medieval Latin clocca
First Known Use: 1882
Well, there's surely no chill in the air here, but this is the closest I could come to the intent of the event!
|a wire cloche (used at picnics to keep pests off the food), the same metal nest with excelsior shred and buttercup and pale avocado speckled eggs, with a few faux silk sunflowers|
|the same wire mesh cloche as above, but this time with a real bird's nest (now abandoned), and a handmade vintage-inspired birdhouse|
That is it - close to cloche! Now, back to see what others have created....be well till next post.
