Today I’m joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life as she is having a Cloche Party! Each time she sponsors this I tell myself I will participate the next time.
I’ve had this house looking cloche for several years. Inside I make a little winter scenery with the store, a Santa, a miniature tree, this old pocket watch ornament and of course some snow. On the out side I hung red beaded tassel and the little rhinestone sign that says, “Believe”.
I don’t feel like the pictures do it justice, but it is quite charming. :)
Next I pulled these pictures from my Christmas 2008 files. We were visiting Emily’s condo in Chicago last December and I helped her decorate for a dinner party she was hosting. As you can see she has lots of cloche’s in all different shapes and sizes.
They started off looking like this and then we got serious!
The tall, slender cloche is sporting pretty red baubles of some sort. The feather is a little ornament with a little glitz that is hard to see. The little cloche next to it holds some old, old ornaments an elderly Russian lady gave to her. They were special to Emily but she wasn’t sure what to do with them. We loved them under glass!
We were quite pleased with her mantle after we spent some time playing with all her pretties!
Be sure to join Marty and the other participants with this fun party! Thanks Marty!!
Well, I’m now back from my Biltmore trip and I see I did something wrong! :( My post that was to publish did not go. I will add it very late. Sorry Marty….
