Cloche Party With Our Marty

It's time for a Cloche Party with our host Marty...that so rhymes!!  Love me a party and love me some cloches, so here are my offerings for this party season.  Hope you enjoy!

Dual Glassy Beauties, lined up and decked out in green goodness.

Fler De Lis is always a classic and just that much more lovely under glass.

Living Room Vignette that you might already have seen but thought I would post again in case you missed it.  I love my white artichoke.  The Bee cloche is my first and favorite.  I found it at a yard sale for one dollar.  I consider it one of my best finds.

I found this huge cloche at Home Goods a few months ago.  It is a mammoth at 15 inches tall and measures 12 inches across. 

Edited to add note: As I am now viewing my post to ensure it looks as I expected...I find that the lovely Titanic book still has the sales sticker on it...color me red and just close your left eye so you don't see that. 

My collection of pastry stands filled with this and that for a welcoming display on the dining table.

I found this cute little metal bird on a rock at Cracker Barrel last fall...he has a brother around here somewhere.

You can't have a cloche without a chicken ( I just made that up) so here is my required chicken shot.

Please visit Marty at A Stroll Thru Life and bask in Cloche Heaven on Earth.  Come back and visit anytime.

You have a beautiful collection. I love the pastry stands. They look very elegant with their long stems.

You always do such a nice job with your cloches, Anita! I love them all! Love that huge one. Home Goods always has such great glass pieces {their apothecary jars are fantastic, too}.

Oh, my Lord, Anita! Look at all of your cloches and you've decked them out beautifully! I may have to copy some of your ideas! You're good!

Oh my goodness. I just kept ooohing and ahhing over the next picture. My DH even asked me what was so amazing. lol You do have some gorgeous cloches and I am just in awe of the gorgeous vignettes you've created. So much inspiration. I just can't pick a favorite, but I am so going to copy you on some of these. I have those same little flower bowls and the fruit in them is just fabulous, so I can definitely copy that. I seriously do appreciate and love all of your vignettes. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty


These cloches are fabulous!! I just adore the very tall ones, you even have saucers with cups inside, wow! Beautiful displays, each and everyone of them and the inside elements are wonderful, too. I love the ones that have a tall stem, also, just gorgeous! Lots of hugs. FABBY

My favorite cloche is that wide one. I really want to find one like that. Your alphabet balls are really cute together.

Martha said...

You have a wonderful collection of cloches and each one is filled very artistically -- love your collection -- especially the one with the embossed one and the HUGE one!!!

Terry said...

You really love cloches and have a great collection! You have decorated with them so well too. I have some too, but was lucky to find an antique one at a garage sale that is tall, in perfect condition and very heavy with a rolled bottom.

Hi Anita~
You have some beautiful cloches with so many fun displays! I'm not even trying to choose favorites anymore with those of you with multiples. I love them all!

You have created some wonderful designs in all your unique cloches! I've never seen a cloche with a bee on it! What a bargain too.

I also signed up to "Follow" you!
