Clocheing With Marty



Hello, Dear Ones! Don't we love our cloches? Well, Our Dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life knows this and she's having a Cloche Party! Thank you Marty for hosting this fun party! So make sure you pop over to see her and visit all of the party goers.

I love my cloches too...
Here's a vignette set up on my sideboard in the dining room!!


This is a cake holder and not a cloche, but it's glass and has a domed lid so I thought it would count. I filled her with red faux roses. I love my fauxs and they look especially nice under a glass dome! :)

Cups are always pretty under glass too!

More fauxs sitting in a little tarnished sugar bowl.

More cups looking pretty under glass!

Nekked ( that's Texan for naked! ) cloches look good just sitting on the table looking pretty too!

Another little cloche on a stand.

This is not a cloche but it's glass and I always filler up with shells during the summer.

This cloche set up was an accident. I had a leftover cloche and didn't know where to put it. So...I poked her down on top of my olden Fostoria sandwich plate. That's the handle of the sandwich plate you see sticking up!

I thought the little handle looked so precious and shy under glass! :) I surprise myself at my own creativity! :) You know I'm teasing! :)

Another little vignette in the den...wire cloches and birds.

This wire cloche was a dark bronzy color so I gave her a creamy look with my dainty fingers and spray paint! I think a duet is going on with these little birds!

Oh, Dear Ones...this is my new wire cloche. Don't you just love it? You can see it has a little stand and another birdie on top! Looooove it! Now that I step back a bit, I hear a little bit of singing - a birdie quartet! I love this stuff! :)

In the kitchen I've placed this tiny little cloche on another Fostoria tiny stand and poked a little Rooster under it!

Here's my last cloche vignette to show you. This is in the kitchen. Now I'm a copy cat and saw a tomato can with daisies in it poked under a cloche on Dot's blog - Picket's Place - and I just had to do this too! I hope it's okay to be a copy cat and I don't think Picket would mind, she loves me! :)

Hope you've enjoyed seeing my cloches and make sure to pop over to Marty's and see more ways to decorate with cloches!



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Hooked On A Feeling


I can't stop this feelin' deep inside of me
Girl, you just don't realize what you do to me
When ya hold me in your arms so tight
You let me know everything's all right
I-I-I, I'm hooked on a feelin'
High on believin' that you're in love with me
Lips are sweet as candy, the taste stays on my mind
Girl, you keep me thirsty for another cup of wine
I got it bad for you, girl but I don't need a cure
I'll just stay addicted and hope I can endure
All the good love when we're all alone
Keep it up, girl, yeah ya turn me on
I-I-I, I'm hooked on a feelin'
High on believin' that you're in love with me
All the good love when we're all alone
Keep it up, girl, yeah ya turn me on
I-I-I, I'm hooked on a feelin'
I'm high on believin' that you're in love with me
~ sung by B.J. Thomas

  23. Everything looks so pretty! I love red so those are exciting to see. You always do a wonderful job decorating. I have to say, I could almost be "nekkid" myself in this heat! I cannot tell you how much I hate it.

    Have a wonderful week!

  24. Hello dear Sheila,
    I love your post! Simply filled with imagination and eye candy! LOVE the cloches with birdies under them and I can hear them singing too! Of course, I always swoon over teacups under a cloche! Simply stunning post, sweet Sheila. I have always enjoyed BJ's Hooked On A Feeling! Thanks for your visit and if you wish you are welcome to link up to Tea Time too as your tea things would most certainly fit in nicely. Have a delightful week.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  35. Shelia, All of your cloches are so innovative- I especially like the stacked teacups! And your new wire birdie cloche is so precious! I may have to re-doing one of my wire cloches- it needs some brightening up with some creamy white paint, too.
    Glad you came by today. ;-) Sue

  36. Golly Neds (that's old people talk), you've got a nice collection of cloches, Shelia! I wish I'd thought to include my cake plate. It is very similar to yours & tomorrow morning I am going to tuck some colored petals beneath to bring out the depth & sparkle.

    I laughed when I saw your copy of Picket's tomato can. I loved that! I, too, copied several other bloggers. We learn so much from each other & its the sharing of ideas that makes this so much fun.

    Hugs,

    Such pretty cloches you have created. Your sideboard looks darling and I'm really loving all of the wire cloches you have. And you have created a great version of Picket Fences tomato can...very cute! I'm always copying some cute design on find here in blogland.

  42. Hi Shelia,
    I love your tea set with the cloche set in. I'd like to try to copy your idea if it works with what I've got. LOVE it! Your new wire cloche is beautiful and looks great displayed with the birds and greenery. I'd like to get one of those for my lanai. And if I had more room in my kitchen, I'd steal your stolen idea with the daisies and tomatoe jar. That looks great! It's such a nice vignette! Have a wonderful week!

  50. Yes, teacups! Why didn't I think of that, Shelia! Great idea! I am determined to find a wire cloche in time for the next party. I really am loving these casual looking cloches that look like they work in so well everywhere.

  67. Hi Shelia, We just came home from watching Harry Potter, the last movie. I'm sad, I really got into those stories. My grands were reading them so I decided to read he first one and I was hooked.

    I love all the cloches you shared and the clever way you displayed them all. The white ones with the birds got my attention because I love birds. A little paint sure changed the look in a pretty way.I wanted to join in too but time just wasn't om my side. Nice cloche post and fun with the rooster in one and roses in another. Ideas abound. Smile here.Yes, I am packing for Claudi
    Hello Shelia, I wanted to do the cloche party but no time here to get it done. Your post is so much fun because your clever ideas for poking things in a cloche just make me smile. I love the birds and the one you painted. As usual a post well done. Smile!
    Yes, time is getting closer to Claudie's party. I am sure it will be fun but it is a long way from home huh? I will miss not meeting you. One day, I hope my sweetie friend.
    Love, Jeanne

  68. Shelia, this is weird. I thought I lost your post and wrote it again. It was there all the time and I didn't see it. HA! Cheri' distracted me to go out and I guess it happened then.

  76. Shelia, All of your cloche vignettes are so pretty. I love those beautiful etched cloches. Your accidental cloche (the handle) is so unique, and I'm loving the tomato can with daisies. I might have to copy that one too. I think I heard all of those pretty birds singing too. laurie
