A Snow Queen Angel for Marty's Cloche Party

Our sweet friend, Marty is hosting another cloche party. I don't exactly have any cloches around my house, but I really wanted to join in the fun of Marty's party. Last time I fudged a little and used my petite cupcake stand with dome. I had no idea what to share this time around until Monday when I was visiting Julie Marie @ Idyllhours for Vintage Christmas Monday. Julie Marie shared her collection of vintage Putz houses and villages. In one of her little vignettes was a Snow Queen piece. BINGO! I suddenly realized that I have one just like it among my Christmas decorations. So I unpacked this little treasure to share today.

This is not a vintage piece. Julie Marie said she received hers as a gift from her sister. My little Snow Queen Angel was a gift from my sweet friend, Susan. You met her here in October when I spotlighted her home on tour for Halloween decorations.

The Snow Queen Angel has a glass skirt in which there is the precious little scene above.

The snowman sits on the snowy landscape among little evergreen trees covered with snow.

He has the sweetest little grin and carrot nose.

The little Snow Queen Angel has rosy cheeks, golden wings, and a crown of gold. Her dress is trimmed in golden hearts with a beautiful "diamond" encrusted waist. Her sweet little angelic face warms my heart each time I pass her way.

Artist Nicol Sayre created this charmer in 2007. She sits upon a box covered in vintage sheet music. I think she qualifies as a beautiful cloche. What do you think?

Deana @ Alchemy fine Living has recently posted about the Pay It Forward gift that she received from me. Deana owns a store that sells a unique blend of antiques and vintage home decor items. She is always sharing a great design idea or a fabulous makeover of a vintage item. Deana is one talented lady! If you would like to play the game, hurry on over to Deana's. The first three to respond who have a personal blog will receive a PIF gift from Deana.
