When I Die, I Want To Come Back As A Cloche

Joining Marty's Spring Cloche Party.  Please click here to visit her and see all the beautiful offerings from other Clocher's in Blog Land. 

Spring is in the air and cloches are popping up on tabletops and counters everywhere.  Cloche Farmers are expecting a bumper crop of the little beauties this year and that means lots of eye candy for your viewing enjoyment.  Home decor conditions have been favorable and this Cloche Farmer is previewing some of her offerings with you today. 

The Easter Bunny hopped by and left some eggs to be protected until the big day.  Safely enclosed in glass on a little bunny tied plate, these little eggs are resting nicely.

A little springtime in the Entryway.  Come on in for a visit.

A silver tray is a great home for a teeny cloche.

Cut glass perfection.

In the kitchen we find nature's cloche, the beehive....inside a glass cloche. 

This silver beehive is for upscale bees only...others need not apply.  This residence is located in a glassed much better than those gated communities.  Bo the Bee is the Doorman and he takes his job very seriously.   Don't make the mistake of being deceived by his cuteness...he is one tough customer.

My newest cloche is tall enough to hold a stack of coffee cups. 

Cups festooned with little gerber daisies.  Ah Spring, I know you are near.

Thanks for joining me on the Spring cloche tour.  I hope you have as much fun playing with your curved cuties as I do.  Till next time...

Love your cloches, Anita! You've got a definite bumper crop there! : ) I don't think I've seen one quite as small as the one you've got. That is too cute! I love those Easter eggs you have. I also love the taller, thinner cloche with the teacups and saucers. What a great way to add some height to a vignette. I'm going to have to look for one myself!

Theresa said...

Oh my gosh Anita, beauty, beauty everywhere! I love all of the different varieties and colorful ribbon! Thanks for sharing with me! HUGS!

Beautiful! I really like the bee hive and the stacked cups are a favorite too!

And all this time, I thought a cloche was some sort of hat! How beautiful everything is, including your "littles," of course. I have 6 in many stages of life, and I love them all the way. I'm glad you have stopped by my little spot in the blog-road. I'm just getting started, and certainly have a lot to learn! See you again soon.

Donna said...

I adore all of your cloches! I love the beehive one and the teacups ... they are all the cute!
Thank you for visiting me! I am now a follower of your blog!
