Fall Cloche Party

Hello, Dear Ones! I wanted to join Marty for her Cloche Party and thank her for hosting this most fun event!

I'm still trying to get well from this nasty upper respiratory infection! Meds had been taken but I still fell yucky! I hate to feel bad!! Ugh!!


This little bird topped wired cloche sits on a table in the entry. I've so enjoyed this little set up and smile each time I pass! :)

Here is a cloche display in the living room!

I know most of you have seen this one ~ a little corner in my kitchen!

I have many more cloches but just didn't have the time to get them all out! Now make sure you visit Marty's blog A Stroll Thru Life to see the most clochiest creative ones.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Tis Autumn

Old Father time checked, so there'd be no doubt;
Called on the North wind to come on out,
Then cupped his hands so proudly to shout,
“La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, ‘tis autumn!'

Trees say they're tired, they've born too much fruit;
Charmed on the wayside, there's no dispute.
Now shedding leaves, they don't give a hoot –
La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, ‘tis autumn!

Then the birds got together to chirp about the weather
After makin' their decision, in birdie-like precision,
Turned about, and made a beeline to the south.

My holding you close really is no crime –
Ask the birds and the trees and old Father Time.
It's just to help the mercury climb.
La-di-dah di-dah-di-dum, ‘tis autumn.
~ sung by Nat King Cole
