It has seemed that for years the go to decorative accent has always been a bowl of some form filled with balls or orbs of some form or another.  “I just don’t know what to put here!?”  well the answer usually ended up a bowl full of balls.  I know I’m guilty of it.  Well now I think the Bell Jar or Cloche is quickly taking it’s place.  Thank goodness… it’s time for a change right?  The beauty of the bell jar is that you can put anything under them & it instantly gives the item enclosed importance.  I recently found one in our crawl space.  An big, old, heavy glass one & I am dying to use it somewhere.  I’m thinking it is going to live in our hutch once it is built.  I know you guys think I’m lying when I say “I recently found this ______ in my attic” but seriously, I really do find these things!  I bet you would too… You just have to be willing to dig!
