Growing up with a beekeeper father has left me with an oddly profound love for the buzzing creatures. I'm not about to harvest a beehive myself, but I wouldn't mind a bit of bee-themed décor. I think this elegant Wisteria Mercury Glass Beehive Cloche ($27, reduced from $54) is the perfect compromise, especially since it also supports my love for mercury glass. It would look très chic standing on its own anywhere in my home, but it's also a great place to hide keys or other odds and ends that build up day to day. I'd like to use it to save leftovers, but unfortunately it's not food-safe.
I have a Great Gatsby-esque cloche hat that I've been wearing all Winter. If you don't have one in your closet yet, try one out, like this Bloomingdales Wool Cloche Hat. It's similar to the one Diane Kruger wore recently at a New Year's party. Plus, the light color will allow you to wear it through Spring.
The current bidding price is at $14.99, and the auction ends on Thursday, Jan. 17. Good luck and happy bidding!
