Clocheing with Marty

Hello, Dear Ones! It's time for another cloche party with our Dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.
This is always an exciting event! Make sure you pop by her blog to see all of the marvelous objects that will be poked under glass domes.

Now, my cloches seem to be a bit flighty! Yep, flighty! I'm dreaming of springness and my little birds have found their way under the cloches. Hope you enjoy my flightyness.

First, I wanted to bring you into the dining room. Now if you pop in to see me very often you may remember these cloches ~ I featured them in a tablescape. As I was taking all of my dishes off the table I decided I would keep this flighty vignette.

Peep peep peep...

These little flighty ones seem to really like being under the cloches so they can stay here for a while!

Now we'll go into the living room. More flightyness.

Here's another little bird.


Moving over to a corner of the living room...more flightyness.

Loving being under glass, these two little darlings are sitting atop a bell ~ smiling.

Peep peep...

Here we are in the breakfast room. I love this wire cloche with a little flightyness on top! See that little birdie? Peep!

Fruits and veggies sitting on puffs of green are all enclosed under chicken wire! :)

...and more flightyness of family! Mommy bird with her two babies are trying to get a tiny bite of the fruit. Peep peep peep...

We've ended up in the kitchen with more clocheness, well, sort of. More like domeness.

What's under that dome? Eggs... Which came first the flightyness or the egg? :)

We're all ready for a little breakfast. Tiny flightyness holding a soft boiled egg!

Eggs don't peep, do they? Oh, but chickens and roosters do...peep peep!!

Thanks for popping in to see my flighty clocheness! Now pop on over to see our Most Wonderful Marty to see the other cloche party participants.

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's going to buy you a mockingbird.

If that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's going to buy you a diamond ring.

If that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama's going to buy you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,
Mama's going to buy you a billy goat.

If that billy goat won't pull,
Mama's going to buy you a cart and bull.

If that cart and bull turn over,
Mama's going to buy you a dog named Rover.

If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Mama's going to buy you a horse and cart.

If that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little babe in town.

So hush little baby, don't you cry,
Daddy loves you and so do I.
~ sung by ME!! :)



  1. captured chirps...
    suspended in time...
    no longer flying...
    but are now enshrined...

    held to the heart...
    and cherished most dear...
    safe and secure now...
    where there is no fear...

  2. Beautiful displays! You've given me some wonderful ideas.

  3. I just love your "flighty clocheness," Shelia! Can't go wrong with me when birds are part of the scenario, you know.

  4. Evening Shelia

  26. Shelia,
    Each one of your cloche vignettes is truly lovely.

    Thanks for your comment about the Black Heritage Month tablescape, but the table setting was made by a friend for a display at church. She is very creative and did a fine interpretation of a slave table.
    Have a wonderful weekend,

  27. Your birdies are all so sweet. I especially love the wire cloche and the brown birds.
    You have a great collection of both.

  28. Sheila, it would be so hard to pick a favorite as they are all cute as they can be in their own special way. We all love our little birdies, don't we? I love all your birds and your moss rocks and your domes of all shapes and sizes. Great job!


  29. Sheila, everything is soooo pretty. I especially love the one with the wired cloche and the birds.

  30. Oh Shelia all your little tweety birds are making me yearn for spring!! The displays are all lovely! I am so loving white these days and the first set with all the white birds is just beautiful!!

    My you have the cloches!!


  31. Oh girlie.....I LUV all your clocheness!!!! My favorite is the first photo with the little bird singing its sweet heart out!!! I could almost hear it in a distance!!!

  32. I'm loving all your high flying cloches...the white bird grouping is fabulous.

  33. aww, I love them all! very cute.

  34. Love your ideas! I have birds under one of mine too!

  35. Your cloches are so lovely. I really like the one with the wire netting, I have never seen one like this before. This is my first cloche party. It really inspires my when I look at these pretty cloches to start a collection of my own. Come visit me at Chicory Nits, I am a new blog on the block.


  36. I think all the women in my family have sung that song as a lullabye. You almost made me forget about your wonderful cloches. With all that flytiness I'm sure Spring will burst forth soon!

  37. "Flightyness" abounds under your cloches! Wonderful theme for your displays and they look so pretty!


  38. This is my first visit to your lovely blog, so nice to meet another Texas blogger!

    All of your cloches are gorgeous, but that wire one made my heart skip a!
