A Cloche Party, Yay!

Hey everyone!  Well, I almost missed this party, but got my act together just in time!  It's always fun to join any of Marty's parties, but she has some of the best cloche parties -- so inspiring!  Do you know that I didn't even realize cloches could be used anywhere except in the garden -- well, that is if you are a Martha Stewart gardener, until I saw one of Marty's cloche parties.  I certainly didn't realize there were so many lovely shapes & forms of cloches until I started blogging and met Marty.  Marty was one of the very first bloggers I met back in 2010, when I first started blogging.  I didn't even know for a long time that she is also an Arizonan.  We've never met in person, but I'll bet she is just as warm, friendly and knowledgeable as she is in her blog.  So....anyway, here are a few glimpses of some cloches I love to decorate with in our home.

This is my favorite cloche, and I usually have it somewhere in my dining room or sitting room.  It's quite large, and is very thin glass.  Would you believe I found it at Ross several years ago?

I love this little tea set displayed inside.

I have it sitting on a stack of china plates.

Decorating here in the entry is always fun.

Some of you might call this a birdcage, but I see it as a cloche.  It was a sale purchase from Michael's several years ago.

I've used this cloche in so many ways over the years, but I really love this display -- a sweet little teacup and saucer, some tiny book page scrolls and a little chalkboard with "Family" written on it.

This little wire cloche was either from Hob Lob or Michael's, on sale, a few years ago.

It is residing in our guest room right now........

filled with a tiny china tea set that I use with my two youngest granddaughters when they come to visit.

I'm always on the watch for cloches.  They are just so much fun to decorate with and can be used for any seasonal or non-season displays.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my very small collection and the simple ways I've used them.  Please come again soon!

I'm linking up with Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her Cloche Party.

Yay!!! I'm able to comment again!! You fixed it! I wanted to say that I love all your cloches. I'm really liking your idea of putting the tea cups in them. You've given me a lot of great ideas. :) I have that same birdcage/cloche from Michael's and love it. Have a great weekend!
