Miss Haberdash Christmas....bell jars

They've been appearing in all the best homewares stores for some time now, but the bell jar or cloche is a terrific way to show off your Christmas collectables.
Originally a piece of scientific equipment, the bell jar was adopted by the Victorians to showcase or protect precious items. As a table centerpiece the large glass dome adds a bit of theatre and if you love  "bling" try filling the bell jar with lights.

But remember, only showcase the best of your collection, vintage baubles and glass finials look beautiful displayed like this but plastic baubles not so much!  Create your own winter wonderland in miniature it's charming and an easy look to achieve.,, commonground,
