A cloche was originally a french word for bell that referred to a bell shaped glass dome that served as a covering for protecting plants from cold temperatures. Today, cloche still refers to a bell shaped glass dome, but the dome may be used as a cover for protecting plants but more often than not a cloche is used to cover a decorative display. You can find cloche’s covering old books, clocks, bird’s nests, keepsakes, teacups and yummy desserts. Enjoy browsing through this post featuring the cloche.Maybe you’ll find a great idea to bring into your home.
