Joining Marty's Cloche Party

This is an add on, just wanted to show you this dome that I bought from TJ Maxx here. It was $3. The tray is $3.50 and the bird inside is $2.00. If you notice, the base of the bird matches my animal decor and plates on my most recent safari tablescape. I thought it would be a good addition to the collection.
And since I am already loading a pic, I thought I should add pics of my 2 grandsons that I am presently enjoying right now. The baby sure is growing fast. He smiled for the first time for me today.
Another cloche party? How exciting! Thanks to Marty for making this fun event possible. Go visit her at and see lots of beautifully created and decorated cloches. I think this is supposed to have a winter or Valentine's theme. I don't have any more winter stuff out, they are all put away so I will just show you some with a Valentine theme and some that are just anything. Hope you don't mind.

Here is my lovers figurine. I added tulle and red bows and a heart to embellish the top, just for an added touch. I did not know where to store both this dome server and the tea set so I put them together and left them out on the breakfast nook cabinet.

I have since moved this on the computer armoire in the guest room.

I placed my Valentine present, a set of citrine with diamonds pendant and earrings, in a tiny cloche.

Here are more pictures in a mosaic.

I just placed wooden blocks to spell "Love" in a long cloche.

This one's been sitting on the guest room end table. It's an Asian couple.

I just placed a cherub in a small cloche and placed it in a hall shelf right outside the guest room.

I have more but I ran out of time to decorate them. Thanks a lot for your visit and thanks Marty, for hosting another great party.

Oh Christine, you know that I love all of your cloches, but the pictures of your two grandsons just stole my heart. You always do the most beautiful vignettes, I kep thinking each one was my favorite. That etched cloche always steals the show. Thanks so much for joining the party. You are the best. Enjoy those babies. Hugs, Marty

Cloches are pretty, but it's those grandchildren who are the best. Loved seeing the update of the baby. Have fun!

Evening, Most Proud Grandmother! :) What little darlings! I'm so glad you're getting to enjoy these little ones. Hopefully soon I'll be doing the same thing.
Now your cloches, what can I say! They're all marvelous. I'm rather partial to the one with the cups - I love that idea. Never seen that one before! You're good.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

You have SO many cloches. I have the one I made for Alan's office but I don't know if I should post just one. lol!! I think I really love the cloche with the pretty teacups the best, only because it is unusual but so pretty!! But all of them are gorgeous!!

I have not joined the party since I do not own a cloche yet but I had fun looking at your creativity. I love your pretty pretty. You have some wonderful items in your lovely home. I like to see what everyone has each week but I spend most of my time in the kitchen playing with my flour instead of decorating my house:) Have a fun weekend.
