cloche party

Although I am fashionably late, I really wanted to join the fun over at A stroll thru life, and join the cloche party!

I really love cloches, and have in just the last few years tried to collect a few.

Here's a tiny one, at just about 5 inches tall. I simply hung a nativity ornament on the hook inside.




This is my largest, and most favorite,at about two feet. My family gave it to me for Mothers day this year.
I have centered on a candle stick, an antique tiny creche that I found recently, with holly and magnolia greenery as well as some mercury bulbs, to add some sparkle.


This next one I found at TJ Max, for just $16.oo, love it! I just added a small tea cup with a bright red glass bulb on top.

Next is holding my prize angel. My oldest sister gave me this angel when I was very young, just a child I believe. And I have cherished it always. I love that it is singled out this year in a place of honor.



This one isn't technically a cloche, but I like it. Here it is just holding some pretty Florida oranges on some Christmas greenery.



If you weren't aware of cloches before, you will begin to see them everywhere now that you are. 
Join the party, or just stop in for a short visit to see lots of cloches HERE.

Oh I love your wonderful collection of cloches, and they are all decorated so beautifully. I also really like the wire one, I have one in chicken wire, and to me they really are cloches. Beautiful displays and vignettes. Thanks for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

They are all so pretty and so different! I love the big one and the way you have arranged things in it...the teacup with the ornament is so delicate and pretty and how special is the one with the angel! I had no idea what a cloche was until blogging...it is contagious!

Thank you for visiting me today!
